Music at the Summer Rising Festival in IMMA, Dublin

Gang Colours

An exciting array of musicians, sonic artists and bands are set to play on the grounds of the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Kilmainham as part of their Summer Rising festival this month (July 18th – 26th).

With a programme of music and sonic art installations curated by Aoife Flynn running on Saturday, July 26th the event will include a plethora of styles, genres and approaches that highlight the broad range of sound related art being created at the moment.

Split into two parts, the Garden Party (Daytime, 12pm) & the Summer Party (Night Time, 7pm – 2am), performances at the Garden Party will include sets from Seán Mac Erlaine, The BQ Trio, The Line Up choir and Roland Gomez in the venue’s formal gardens.

While Jimmy Eadie’s interactive work Wow & Flutter will be running during the day and into the night at the heritage rooms in the North Range of the IMMA.

The Summer Party will see performances from the brilliant Somerville (whose recent supporting slot at Carriages’ single launch was a stunning display of the artist’s live sound), electronic artist Gang Colours and a two-hour DJ set from Donal Dineen.

There will also be all night DJ sets from Emmet Condon of Homebeat and 11:11, and an all vinyl set from David Kitt.
