Galway Arts Festival
With the plethora of festivals on the go these days, it’s hard not to get a leeetle bit jaded when it comes to another festival launch. But then you take a look at the programme and you manage to get all excited all over again. Especially given that this year’s Galway Arts Festival, which runs from July 12 to 25, boasts a new Druid-produced Enda Walsh play called Penelope, the return of the Corn Exchange’s feted Freefall, jazz performer extraordinaire Brad Mehldau, a reading by Bret Easton Ellis, and a screening of the new Spike Jonze film I’m Here.

As a fine Friday sign- and send-off, how about a little Brad Mehldau meets Radiohead. As you can see, they get along famously.
