'Behind Closed Doors' is the virtual concert series set to breathe life into your weekend.
Organised by Cabal, the three-day streamed event will take place from May 22 - May 24 and is completely free to enjoy.
Ireland has been officially in lockdown for seven weeks now as a result of COVID-19, and the effect of this pandemic on musicians and creatives in general has been cataclysmic.
The music industry has taken a huge hit, and venues are closing down without ticket sales from gigs. Cabal, like many others, were left scrambling to figure out how to navigate the quarantine period.
They've been working hard behind the scenes to turn 'Behind Closed Doors' into a reality, and now the weekend has finally arrived.
The Cabal crew will return to Dolan's Warehouse in Limerick, Galways's Róisín Dubh and the newly built Conference Services Studio in the capital city.
In each venue across three cities, Cabal will showcase the best of local talent for streamers to enjoy, featuring 12 hours of live DJ sets from your favourite Irish artists.
The DJ sets will be accompanies by a full Cabal Visual Production, broadcast directly into your homes.
The impressive line-up consists of 40Hurtz, Chaz Moloney, Maedbh O'Connor, DJ Replay PX, Paul Byrne, Peter Curtin on RTÉ 2XM, Senan Moore and SHEE from Limerick.
Galway will host Burlie Mac, Daire Shox, Fionn O Higgins, Hannah Hession and Shampain.
Finally, Dublin will feature sets from DJ Deece, E M A, George Feely, JIO Pear, Lee Kelly, Long Island Sound, Nialler9, R.Kitt and Quinton Campbell.
Cabal started back in 2017, and have gone from strength to strength ever since. Their live-streaming capabilities have given them the skills and smarts to create 'Behind Closed Doors' at the perfect moment.
The three-day event will be live-streamed exclusively onto Cabal's website via their bespoke media player, which will enable you to stream in HD with High Res Audio.
Each day, Cabal will be hosting a 500 capacity Zoom call for hundreds of streamers to enjoy the DJ sets.
"Strict sanitation & social distancing measures will be in place in each venue to meet the health & safety requirements of the HSE & to ensure the safety of all artists & crew involved," Cabal wrote on their Eventbrite post.
Free tickets can be accessed via Eventbrite, and will provide an access code to view the stream and an email link for the zoom chat on the days of the event.
"The likelihood of returning to venues as we know them is highly unlikely until September at the earliest," Cabal said.
"Despite how passionate we are about our music/events and how disappointed we are not to be able to party with you all, we continue to fully support the action the government has taken," the post adds.
"The health & well-being of everyone on our little island is the most important thing of all, but trust us, once this is all over and it's safe to do so, we have some massive parties ready in waiting!"
