Taking place until August 29th, Dublin Quays Festival's viewers are in for a musical treat.
Dublin Quays Festival are continuing their brilliant line-up of gigs with one of the most exciting young bands around: Sprints.
The garage-noise four-piece from Dublin will perform from The Grand Social tonight at 9pm, broadcast free to view on the Dublin Quays Festival YouTube channel.
Following up on March’s Manifesto EP, the band reflect upon the nature of sacrifice that comes with pursuing a career in the arts, explaining: “Friends are emigrating, buying houses, growing older and maturing, whatever that means, and sometimes you feel stuck. It feels like the world is spinning and moving around you, and while there is nothing else I’d rather be doing than playing music with my adopted family, sometimes you can’t help but feel left behind.”
A press release confirms there’s a second EP from the rising quartet coming later in 2021, with more news coming “imminently”.
Featuring 16 gigs taking place across four venues on the banks of the River Liffey, Dublin Quays Festival is celebrating live music’s triumphant return to the capital – by showcasing some of the best music that Ireland has to offer.
In keeping with Government guidelines, the indoor shows will be live streamed as free-to-view shows from Dublin Quays Festival’s Facebook page and YouTube channel at 9pm on the scheduled gig date.
Sin É, The Workman’s Club, The Grand Social and The Sound House Dublin will each host an array of gigs, featuring: Bitch Falcon, The Bonk, Shakalak, The Pale, Word Up Collective, Rack & Ruins, A Ritual Sea, Birds Of Olympus, Keeley, Leila Jane, Emma Hynes, Eileen Gogan and more.
