Féile Na Gréine has announced their blistering lineup for their 2023 music festival in Limerick City this August 18-20
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 an array of venues, from arts spaces and underground clubs to craft breweries and street parties, with all events free to the public.
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 the award-nominated music documentary by Féile Na Gréine; Out of Place, which was released earlier this year to international acclaim. With over 30 scheduled events including gigs, site-specific performances, and workshops, this festival is a celebration of everything DIY in Irish independent music.
The festival organisers have curated this year’s festival to reflect 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.
Composed of musicians, designers, photographers, and other creative practitioners, Féile Na Gréine began as a yearly music festival and continues to build a national reputation for championing Ireland’s emerging musical talent. The organisation’s operations are guided by strong-held beliefs in DIY culture, grassroots connections and inclusivity within the arts. As Féile Na Gréine has grown, so has its creative output, which now includes filmmaking and publications, all of which embody a fierce DIY approach.
