Festival 2020 – Online Edition Update
We are delighted to announce that our 2020 festival will be made available to all of you at home online through our social media channels. We, the Five Lamps Arts Festival team, headed by Rosin Lonergan, our Artistic Director, and Marcela Parducci, our Project Manager, have been working hard to ensure that the 2020 festival is delivered in as an entertaining and safe as possible way this year. We have suffered many set-backs this year, but in partnership with D Light Studios we have been able to make this a possibility. By strictly following the HSE guidelines we recorded a superb lineup of artists to display a wide array of the culture and art that exist in Dublin’s Northside.
The full festival will premiere on Wednesday the 21st of October on our Facebook page @5lampsarts. After this the 2020 festival will be available on our YouTube channel.
The 2020 festival is hosted by the brilliant non-binary drag artist Avoca Reaction who introduces the festival as well as performing.
The acts are opened up by some traditional Irish music performed by Liam Lonergan, Aoife Nic Dhomhnaill, Libby McCrohan and John Flynn, all Dublin based artists. This is accompanied by some wonderful Irish dancing performed by Caoimhe Ni Mhaolagain in the sean-nós style.
