Garageland has launched a series of All Ages shows for younger bands and solo artists.
Starting Saturday 3rd November in The Adelphi at Dublin’s Abbey Hotel at 2.30pm – the first show is already almost SOLD OUT, with young musicians queuing up to take part in the Christmas show planned for December. Artists on Sat 3rd are Indigo (pictured), Gracepark, Uncool Uncool, Opal Lights, The Innocents and Groove Killer. Doors open at 2.30pm and the show runs until 7pm.
‘We’ve been trying to put regular All Ages shows in place for a while now’ said Garageland CEO Dermot Lambert, who has run The Indy City Youth Music Festival for City of Dublin Youth Service Board along with over 100 ‘New Garage Gigs’ since Feb 2016 ‘and we’re delighted to be able to get this off the ground now!’
It’s an alcohol free event, with special meal-deals for the young’uns – the meal deals are even named after the artists performing!
