Pilot music festival announced for Dublin
A pilot music festival has been announced today.
The show, headlined by Gavin James, will take place on July 3rd in Royal Hospital Kilmainham in Dublin. Ireland’s first music festival in almost 16 months with a capacity of 3,500 will be hosted by IMMA .
The Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin, T.D., confirmed that the pilot event will feature some of the country’s hottest artists including Gavin James, Lyra, Denise Chaila, Wild Youth, Sharon Shannon & Wyvern Lingo performing full sets. The show will be hosted by The 2 Johnnies.
Speaking about the event, Minister Catherine Martin said,
“These pilot events are critical on the road to reopening live entertainment and will help the Government to plan for the safe management of events whilst Covid is still circulating in our communities and build confidence in the guidance and event management protocols developed to keep everyone safe”.
“To that end, social distancing will be reduced to one metre; and I am now also introducing rapid testing for concert goers and staff."
Tickets priced €39.50 (subject to a Ticketmaster service charge) go on sale this Friday June 25th at 9am from Ticketmaster.ie.
Tickets will be sold in Pods of either 4 or 6 persons and are not transferrable. Lead person contact details must be provided and if required entire party for HSE contact tracing.
Organisers have implemented a range of control measures to ensure the protection and safety of performing artists, staff, and customers. Directed by Government guidelines, these measures include staggered access times, clear and visible signage, socially distanced queuing systems, readily available hygiene stations in convenient locations, enhanced cleaning regimes, easily accessible toilet facilities, the creation of socially distanced seated and standing Pods for attendees and the wearing of masks when outside your Pod. Event staff will also be on hand to assist and direct patrons to ensure their safety and comfort.
