IMMA’s much loved Summer Party returns this July (14th + 15th), with two bespoke evenings of music, art, and atmosphere in the grounds of IMMA celebrating another fantastic year of output and endeavour from our celebrated artistic community.
The wonderfully eclectic music lineup at Continuous Patterns 2023 features some of Ireland’s most beloved contemporary artists, and a host of exciting emerging stars – a snapshot of all that is good in the current scene.
Friday July 14th sees incredible live performances led by a de facto Dublin legend VERY SPECIAL GUEST who will be announced on June 21st, with performances in tandem from the brilliant and brash nu jazz stylings of Bricknasty, the exciting emerging soulful voice of Irish-Cuban singer Qbanaa, alongside the elegant and esoteric moods of one of Dublin’s underground electronic stalwarts Dreamcycles, with complimentary DJ sets from Kerry native Efa O’Neill fresh off a landmark Boiler Room set at AVA Festival, the unstoppable grooves of Apartment Records boss Kenny Hanlon, and the ever vibrant sound pallets of Dublin based Japanese DJ Emmy Shigeta.
Saturday July 15th brings a slightly different energy, with the epic widescreen soundscapes of the hugely popular Talos, the sparkling hook laden indie creations of Ailbhe Reddy, the beautifully nuanced tones of guitar darling Cian Nugent, alongside the consistently brilliant voice of Caoi De Barra (Wyvern Lingo) and perfectly pitched Saturday evening DJ selections from broadcasting legend and champion of disparate sounds Donal Dineen, the effortless cool of Dublin based – Ethiopian DJ and DDR resident Hewan Mulugeta, and the easy charm of superb Brazilian DJ Pablo Santos.
All of this – with more to come – across two wonderful evenings filled with art, talks, tours, delicious food, interesting drinks, and atmosphere in the stunning grounds of the RHK.
