Following on from its successful inaugural event in late October, new Dublin festival Interlude will return, bigger and bolder, this summer.

Running from Friday 24 June to Sunday 26 June, this summer incarnation of the event will see the addition of a new outdoor stage, as well as an increased overall capacity. The celebration of music, film and art will be hosted just off St. Stephen’s Green, at The RHA, a location which has been steadily developing a reputation for playing host to a wide variety of art and music events.

Joining them on the bill will be a host of Irish and international artists, including Crazy P, Booka Brass Band, Alison Limerick, David Kitt, Donal Dineen, exmagician and many more, with further additions to the line-up expected to be announced in the near future.
