Limrock Live series of concerts announced for Milk Market
Limerick City and County Council in association with Dolans Presents have announced a series of live concerts on Fridays over the month of August to early September.
The concerts are being funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media through the Local Live Performance Programming scheme.
‘Limrock Live’ will take place at the Milk Market every Friday night in August to welcome live audiences back to this popular venue as Covid-19 restrictions are gradually lifted.
The series will showcase a diverse range of local acts including Emma Langford, The O’Malleys, Toucan, Anna’s Anchor and the Alvin Purple Experience.
Following government guidelines, each performance will be strictly limited to a 200-person capacity with tickets sold as pods of four people.
We are absolutely delighted with the reaction to the #Limerock series of gigs every Friday in the Milk Market in August.

Mayor of the city and county of Limerick, Cllr Daniel Butler said; “We’ve all been craving live music during the pandemic and missing the simple pleasure of going to an outdoor gig with our friends and family. I warmly welcome the fact that local artists are being supported through this Local Live Performance programming scheme and that the Council is collaborating with the superb team at Dolans Presents to make this summer event happen- I’m really looking forward to it.”
