Street feasts, riots and even tattoos: this bank holiday is a bit of a wild one

Street feasts, riots and even tattoos: this bank holiday is a bit of a wild one

Okay, I’ll admit it — the headline of this week’s guide to What’s On is a little misleading. While, yes, we do have street feasts, riots and tattoos on the agenda, we promise it’s all quite wholesome and even family-friendly (most of it, anyway). Get ready for a bank holiday to remember — happy long weekend from IMAGE!


Friday: Get ready for summer with the launch of Beatyard at The Lighthouse in Dun Laoghaire

Beatyard, the seaside festival for foodies and music lovers, is back this August, and with acts like Groove Armada, Grandmaster Flash, Chvrches and many more, we can’t wait for the summer to come. But til then, to peak our excitement for the main event, Beatyard is having its launch party in Dun Laoghaire on Friday night to set the tone for a summer of music. With Nautical Crazy Golf, Ping Pong and Beatyard Bingo, it’s a great way to kick off your long weekend.

 

All weekend: Go wild at RIOT at Vicar Street

RIOT has become something of a sensation on the Irish arts scene this past year, and tickets for the wild and wonderful performance are golden for the long weekend. It’s not easy to explain exactly what RIOT consists of, but there’s dancing, spoken word, slapstick comedy, great tunes, and a whole lot of energy. Featuring Irish theatre stalwarts like Emmet Kirwan and the Queen of Ireland herself Panti Bliss, the show is nothing short of amazing, and we’d definitely recommend grabbing a ticket.

 

Saturday: Use the force at the Dublin Ink Flash Day

Love Star Wars? Love tattoos? Love doing something a bit mad over the long weekend? Well, tomorrow’s your lucky day. May 4 is the unofficial day of Star Wars, and Dublin Ink are marking it with a celebration. Flash pieces will be available from their brilliant artists, as well as piercings if that’s more your style, followed by an after party with great tunes and prizes.

 

Sunday: Head outside for your very own Street Feast

Losing touch with our neighbours and community is a growing problem these days in Ireland, but brilliant ideas like Street Feast are aiming to combat that. Wherever you can host, whether it’s out on the road or in the park, or if you just want to head along to one that’s already organised, it’s a brilliant way to get to know your neighbours and have a lovely Sunday.
