'The Gig' is back with a bumper line-up...
In association with the ISPCC, FM104’s 'The Gig' returns for its 7th year at the Olympia Theatre on May 13.
International sensations Kodaline head up the evening, topping a bill that includes O.R.B. (that's the former Original Rudeboys, in case you missed that name change), The Minutes, Gavin James, Walking On Cars and more. What's more, Bressie will handle MC duties. All profits will be donated to FM104’s Help A Dublin Child.
Last year’s event proved a huge success with memorable turns from The Coronas, The Stunning, Ryan Sheridan, This Club, Original Rude Boys, Kiera Dignam and The Voice of Ireland winner Keith Hanley.
"This is the seventh ‘FM104’s The Gig’ and, without doubt, it will be the best one to date," says FM104 Programme Director Dave Kelly . "We, at FM104, are really appreciative of all the acts that perform for free as all proceeds go to FM104’s Help a Dublin Child for the ISPCC.
"The event raises in the region of €50,000 each year. These are much needed funds to help the ISPCC continue their great work with Dublin Kids. This year is a bit different with most of the acts performing at The Gig for the first time in its history.
"We’re also giving one new act their chance to play the famed Olympia stage! Bands who’d like to open the show and join some giant Irish acts on May 13th should send their most recent track to [email][email protected][/email] for a chance to play support at the Olympia on the night."
Tickets for ‘FM104’s The Gig’ priced €35 are on sale now via Ticketmaster.
