As science and music festival Bluedot reveals its 2020 headliners, with a “unique” work by singer Björk and the Halle Orchestra topping the bill, we take a deep dive into the artist’s latest tour, Cornucopia, her recent visit to Dublin’s 3Arena and the lifework to date.

Editors Ephemeral Dublin Appearance

October 21, 2018 by Kenn
Editors hit Dublin last Tuesday night, 16th October, on the back of their 6th album, “Violence”, to a full house at Vicar Street Dublin.
Infused with textured guitar riffs, melodic synths and anthemic choruses, Editors’ new album is a paradox. While lyrically, “Violence” paints a brutal world, one of corruption, pain and grief, musically, the band has entered the pop sphere more than ever.

VINYL Dublin 2018

May 14, 2018 by Kenn
In an age of instant gratification, digitization and high expectation, Vinyl Dublin was a welcome retreat. A much needed moment to catch your breath, reflect and take stock on perhaps not just the music industry but indeed our own relationship with music.

January 19, 2017 by Kenn
Over the weekend, while the world got ready for Donald Trump to take the hot seat, we and all those that went to the Ones To Watch music festival in Dublin’s iconic venue, Whelan’s, were treated with a trump card of what Ireland has up its sleeve, musically!

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain!

September 7, 2016 by Kenn
Bob Marley once sang “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain!” Well, last weekend the 50,000 music fans who invaded the quiet village of Stradbally would most likely attest to this lyric.


August 4, 2016 by Kenn
For music fans the August bank holiday weekend was like the mecca of music. The choice was abundant from Indiependence to Beatyard pumping out the sounds. BUT QUIETLY TUCKED BETWEEN THEM WAS THE DUBLIN LIVE MUSIC TRAILS. In association with DublinTown, Faílte Ireland, Dublin City Council and First Music Contact, the Live Music Trails sees a series of acts located in unconventional music spaces across the city.
