Metropolis' Sunday stage times and after-parties revealed
There are still some tickets remaining.
The excitement is ramping up for the fourth edition of Metropolis Festival, as we're now only a little over a week away from the RDS opening it's doors once again for what is the biggest party of the October bank holiday weekend by a distance.
Held on the 27th and 28th of this month, the event will continue to build upon the niche it has carved out for itself as the country's premier indoor festival experience. Last year proved to be a booming success, with a sell-out crowd and headliners including the likes of Todd Terje, Leftfield and Dj Jazzy Jeff, with the 2018 installment shaping up nicely to do the same.
Metropolis' organisers have today unveiled details of the official after-parties for both nights, as well as the full breakdown of stage times for the Sunday night.
Fresh off the back of the release of their excellent new album The Art of Pretending to Swim, Villagers will be headlining the Saturday of the festival and have also curated a packed line-up consisting of the likes of David Keenan, Friendly Fires, Welsh singer DJ Gwenno, Irish 8-piece Booka Brass and the recent addition of Junior Brother.
The after-parties for both nights will take place at both the Button Factory and Wigwam, with Daithi performing at the former (free Tickets available at the Festival) and Pear & UFO the latter on Saturday night (where you'll get free Entry with Metropolis Ticket), while Honey Dijon & Call Super (tickets available exclusively at Metropolis) and Softboy Records (free Entry with Metropolis Ticket) will take over the reins respectively for the Sunday.
Speaking of the second night, you can catch the full line-up and stage times below for what promises to be a phenomenal day, featuring the likes of headliner Róisín Murphy, Canadian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mac DeMarco, Blood Orange, Young Fathers and Dublin rapper Kojaque.
Select tickets remain on sale and are moving increasingly quickly via Ticketmaster & and the usual outlets, so get on it pronto if you haven't already. Bear in mind also that Metropolis Festival now operates on a strict over 21s age policy.
