Dún Laoghaire Vinyl Festival

Various Venues, Friday 16th November - Sunday 18th November 2018

Welcome to the inaugural Dún Laoghaire Vinyl Festival. A weekend festival celebrating music and vinyl through interviews and discussions with musicians and writers as well as playing loads of records! A celebration of music and the vinyl record.

An idea borne out of conversations in a record shop, where else? A common memory of the importance of vinyl in our youth and a belief that it had become relevant again. The look of the cover, the feel of the sleeve, the smell of the record and the purity of the sound.. it was a format worthy of a revival! The Dún Laoghaire Vinyl Festival will bring together international musicians, writers and filmmakers discussing and playing vinyl records and considering their importance in our culture today.

  • The festival will be a collection of talks and discussions relating to all aspects of vinyl recordings from writing, recording, producing and performing as well as examining sleeve design and liner notes.

  • The three main venues of the festival will be: The Lexicon Library Studio, The National Maritime Museum and the Eblana Club.

  • Other aspects of the music business will be discussed, e.g. the political power of music, the economics of vinyl and why vinyl matters culturally.

  • There will be a record fair on site for the three days.

*Please note that all events on Saturday and Sunday are ‘talking' events and guests will not be playing or singing live.
