Irish indie rockers Pillow Queens are to play in Collins Barracks on 18th March 2023, as the Festival Quarter in the National Museum of Ireland makes its return as part of the St. Patrick’s Festival’s events.
The 18th’s evening will see the iconic Barracks turned into a unique urban festival from 6:30pm, with 12 live acts scheduled to perform across the four stages.
2022's festival saw almost 60,000 attendees enjoy a packed programme of family entertainment, music, art, conversation, workshops, spectacle and street performance. The full programme, which is expected to be announced in early 2023 is open to all ages, and is easily accessible from the city centre by Luas and bus. Further information can be found at stpatricksfestival.ie.
Headliners, Dublin quartet Pillow Queens, comprising of Pamela Connolly, Sarah Corcoran, Cathy McGuinness and Rachel Lyons, will lend their talents and expertise to curating the musical offerings at Festival Quarter on the night. The band’s first album In Waiting, released in 2020, earned the band global acclaim and culminated in an appearance on the US late-night talk show, the Late Late Show with James Corden.

Speaking on their anticipated appearance at 2023’s festival, the Pillow Queens said, “We are so looking forward to playing this event, not only because we get to play alongside some of our favourite Irish acts, but we get to do it in Collins Barracks, a location of such beauty and historic importance.”
Richard Tierney, CEO of the St. Patrick’s festival echoed the band’s excited sentiment, “I’m thrilled to announce today that not only will it return for St. Patrick’s Festival 2023, but also one of Ireland’s hottest international acts, Pillow Queens, will headline the main stage on the Saturday night of the Festival and curate the rest of the music line-up for the night. We’ll be revealing the full line-up in the coming months - it’s sure to be a highlight of the festival weekend, so get your tickets now before it’s too late.”
