TradFest 2021

 

Back in 2006 when we founded TradFest our objectives were simple and not a little ambitious. Make Dublin’s cultural quarter, Temple Bar a beacon to attract the very best Traditional & Folk music and to support musicians & local business through those dog-days of Winter. We have hosted some of the top artists-the biggest, the best and the up and coming. We’ve been acknowledged by leading performers as an important fixture and we’ve carved out our notch in the Irish Music calendar. We aim to continue our commitment to TradFest in 2021 although we know that it’s going to be different this time around. Our priority with TradFest 2021 is to provide Irish artists, both established and emerging, with safe, real performance opportunities in front of live audiences and to breathe life into a devastated city centre. Although we may not be side by side or shoulder to shoulder, we believe that we can be together again in music…

HOW WE MAKE IT WORK

AT Levels 1 & 2 TradFest 2021
will go ahead with:

50

CONCERTS

in total

50

PEOPLE

at each gig

50

MINUTES

gig duration

This year, we will have just 50 concerts. The number of patrons allowed indoors at any one of these will be capped at 50.
Rather than running one extended show, each artist will perform two shorter sets of 50 minutes duration, maintaining a safe indoor time frame for artists, crew and audiences.

Without exception, all audience members must wear masks. TradFest 2021 is partnering with Novaerus, who will provide each venue & pub with bespoke medical grade air de-contamination units providing greatly enhanced protection for artists and audiences.

Performances will again take place in the unique historic venues in Temple Bar & Dublin City Centre that are synonymous with TradFest.
