Fringe is a cut above once again
The programme for this year’s Absolut Dublin Fringe Festival has been announced. The festival will take place in various venues around the city from September 8th-23rd.
As well as the huge number of theatre, comedy, dance and “unusual” events, a healthy music programme is included. Musical comedy duo Rubberbandits will play their first-ever outdoor gig in Dublin at Meeting House Square, while Danish indie-rockers Efterklang will return to Dublin with a special show, collaborating with the Magic Lift Orchestra at the same venue.
Kormac’s Big Band, an eclectic 11-piece orchestra who always go down well in a festival setting, will also play the square, while those of you who prefer to get their musical kicks safely between four walls may be interested in Flatpack – a new opera based around Ikea flatpack furniture and audience participation – which will run at the Ulysees Opera Theatre. fringefest.com
