Dublin City Council’s Arts Office is delighted to present the 5th Northside Music Festival 2011 which will take place across north Dublin city from the 1st to 18th of August.

The Northside Music Festival offers a range of free summertime musical events at exciting venues around the northside of the city. The festival includes a rich array of Irish and international talent as well as a diverse assortment of music (some details below).

This year’s exceptional music programme will be held in distinctive settings such as city parks, community centres, churches and civic spaces that will strengthen existing audiences and attract new audiences.

Supported by The Arts Council, this year’s festival will feature more family orientated events with three concerts by the Whitleblast Quartet and the Speks specifically for children. An exciting workshop programme lead by Wassa Wassa Drum Collective for youth groups will take place across the city. The aim of these workshops is to directly engage young talent with the highest level of professional expertise while celebrating inter-cultural activity.

Admission to all performances is free. Booking is required for all indoor concerts through Artscope on telephone: 01 5059582 or e-mail: info@artscope.ie
