- 25 Mar 19
A brand new weekender has been added to the Irish festival scene today (March 25).
Love Sensation, brought to you by the team behind Mother, will "pop its festival cherry" this August 17 & 18 at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Dublin.
A next generation two-day music and arts festival aimed at the LGBT+ community and their many friends, Love Sensation sees LILY ALLEN, CLEAN BANDIT, GOSSIP & KELIS top the bill across the weekend.
On top of that, the whole thing will be hosted by none other than Queen of Ireland Panti Bliss. The team behind the festival have said to "Expect tons of surprises from The George stage, a Mother Dance Tent you won’t want to leave and a host of RuPaul Drag Queens brought to you by Dublin drag legends ‘Dragged Up’ including Monet X Change, Naomi Smalls, Jujubee, Laganja Estranja & Sonique!"
The weekend will also see performances from Irish dance supremo Daithí, Horse Meat Disco, Andy Butler (Hercules & Love Affair), Kelly-Anne Byrne, Soulé & more.
Joining together thousands of the LGBT+ community with their allies, The Royal Hospital is going to sparkle this August for the most colourful festival Ireland will see.
Speaking about today's announcement, Love Sensation promoter and founder of Mother, Cormac Cashman, said: “ Love Sensation feels like a natural progression for us. We’ve wanted to run a music festival for years, something that caters to our community and focuses on inclusivity, fun, good music, good times and sound people. We’ve been lucky enough to have amazing success with our Pride Block Party (now in its 9th year) so 2019 feels right for us to grow even bigger and launch our very own music Festival!”
With further line up details to be announced in the coming weeks, get ready for a new Love Sensation coming your way this long hot summer!
