Kick of the new year with special performances by Kíla, Wyvern Lingo and more!
Dublin City is set to become a bustling hive of activity as New Year's Festival Dublin continue their celebrations into January 1st with the New Year's Day Concert. Now, the line-up for the event has been revealed.
Headliners and live favourites Kíla will be joined by special guests Wyvern Lingo, Brian Deady and Luz.
Celebrating a career spanning over 30 years, Kíla are heralded as one of Ireland's most innovative and exciting bands. Their unique sound has been ever evolving, rooted in tradition, yet inspired by a myriad of influences and ideas from all around the world. Renowned for their live energetic performances the band have played around the globe in over 30 countries and at some of the world's top festivals including Glastonbury and Electric Picnic.
As one of the country's hottest live acts, having toured Ireland, the UK and Germany, it came as no surprise when Wyvern Lingo's self titled debut album shot to No. 1 in both the Independent Irish Charts and the Irish iTunes Charts, receiving critical acclaim across the board. The trio are guaranteed to deliver a killer show.
Brian Deady exploded into the mainstream when his single 'Clap Both My Hands' became one of the most played Irish songs of 2016 - reaching No.1 in the Spotify UK Viral charts - and he's been on an upward trajectory ever since. Sounding more like he was raised in the Deep South rather than Cork, his rich, soulful voice promises to leave audiences spellbound.
With her powerful voice and emotive storytelling, Luz first caught attention with a Dean Lewis cover that led him to invite her to support him in Dublin. Since then she has gone on to support the likes of Kodaline, Little Hours and Mick Flannery, and as one of the most exciting new voices on the scene her future is looking incredibly bright.
Now in its eighth year, New Year's Festival Dublin (NYF Dublin) will be bigger and better than ever with 4 spectacular events set to take place over 2 days on December 31, 2019 and January 1, 2020.
Celebrate the start of the year at the free, family-friendly concert taking place in Temple Bar's Meeting House Square from 3pm to 8pm on January 1, 2020.
