Rock Against Homelessness in aid of Focus Ireland – Headlined & Curated by Fontaines D.C. at The Olympia Theatre Dublin.

In response to the national homeless crisis, Rock Against Homelessness in aid of Focus Ireland, in association with Independent.ie, has been announced. The gig is curated and headlined by Fontaines D.C., one of the most electrifying bands to emerge from Ireland in recent years. It will be MC'd by Today FM‘s Paul McLoone, and other great acts playing on the night are The Murder Capital, Melts, Kneecap, Just Mustard, The Altered Hours, Stefan Murphy, and The Mary Wallopers.

The housing crisis has become an issue that affects many in modern Irish society and was one of the central topics of the General Election. Right now, there are 10,500 people who are homeless in Ireland and almost 4,000 of them are children. The vast majority of people who are homeless are staying in emergency hostel accommodation, or are families living in cramped hotel rooms with inadequate facilities for their children's development.

Fontaines D.C. will play a 30-minute set for Rock Against Homelessness which is bound to be a stormer as the band have been garnering accolades at home and abroad for their boisterous live performances. Their debut album was released in April 2019 and was described as “…brilliant, top to bottom…”The Guardian, won Album of the Year from BBC 6Music, and was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.
