2nd Dublin Bowie Festival – January 2017!

dublinbowiefestivalThe 2nd Dublin Bowie Festival (2017) takes place citywide in Dublin, from Thursday 5th January, and ends on the first anniversary of David Bowie’s death, Tuesday January 10th.

After last year’s success, the Festival program is greatly expanded, to include more events and more venues, and encapsulates the profound influence and inspiration that Bowie had on both popular culture and art.

Topped by a heavyweight line up of live music, the program also includes movie and documentary screenings, literary events, fashion, fine art, merch markets, Q&As, debates & discussions, a quiz, a Festival club, illustration, karaoke, DJs, and lots lots more…

Friday 6th January 2017 sees Veda’s Lashes to Lashes in The George at 6 pm.

Bowie fanatic, and one of Ireland’s most fabulous drag queens, Veda Beaux Reves hosts a Bowie spectacular of glitter and glam in The George, on 6th January 2017, in what is sure to be one of the most talked-about shows of the Festival.

The venues include Vicar St, The George, Whelans, The Grand Social, The Workman’s Club, The Sugar Club, The Mercantile Hotel, The Opium Rooms, The Liquor Rooms and many other creative spaces, all coming together to pay respect to one of the most important figures in our cultural history, an artist who illuminated popular culture in a way that’s unlikely to be repeated.
