TradFest 2019

Temple Bar, Wednesday 23rd January - Sunday 27th January 2019

TradFest  is Ireland's largest festival of traditional music. The festival also features artists from the worlds of folk, nu-folk, and even (whisper it) rock'n'roll! We want to keep it special – we are still a boutique Winter festival – closing the door on the darkest season and ushering in the light and energy of Spring. TradFest also offers concert goers unique opportunities to experience live music in some of Dublin's most historic places. From the breathtaking nave of St Patrick's Cathedral to the grandeur of City Hall, this is the difference between memorable and unforgettable.

We invite you to join us, to feel every note. This is more than just trad, this is trad without frontiers…
