We are proud to announce the lineup for our 2023 festival in Limerick City. Running from 18-20th of August, this celebration of emerging and experimental music will take audiences on a three-day musical trail through Limerick city, stopping at arts spaces, underground clubs, craft breweries and street parties, with all events free to the public. 

This programme and visual identity reflects the beauty and the chaos of Irish independent music communities, brought together in momentary collisions of sight and sound. Communities that have no silhouette, no fixed reference. Amorphous matter, both swelling and receding all at once. It is a beautiful collision.

This year’s diverse lineup includes the boundary-pushing Katie Kim, the jazz-infused Robocobra Quartet, legendary Limerick scratch-DJ Naive Ted, and a special cinema screening of our award-nominated music documentary, Out of Place. With over 30 artists and events on the programme, this year is a celebration of everything DIY in Irish independent music.
