What’s On: Your guide to the week’s best things to do

With our very own event of the season, the IMAGE Business of Beauty Awards, taking place this Sunday, we’re all wrapped up in the excitement of it all (which you can join in on Sunday evening on Twitter and Instagram!). But for the rest of the week, we’ll be looking for other things to do to lift our spirits after the buzz of Sunday night. These events look sure to do the trick. Happy Friday from IMAGE.ie!

On Friday: Bop to new music at Music Current 2018

Now in its third year, Music Current is the perfect music festival for those who want something a bit different from the Longitudes and Electric Picnics. Focused on contemporary electronic tunes, the three-day festival will be on until Saturday in the Smock Alley Theatre, and there’s a wealth of both Irish and international talent to be seen. Plus, one lucky composer will be awarded the Music Current Commission of €2,500 on the last day of the festival,  for a new work to be premiered at Music Current 2019.

Saturday: Practice your cúpla focail at Beo – Gaelach agus Bródúil

I’m always interested in events that encourage the use of Irish and this event on Saturday has something for everyone. This event, which is expected to attract thousands, is all about celebrating the language, craic and ceol of Ireland, all on the streets of Dublin. Groups of students, sports clubs, Irish language organisations and everyday Gaeilgeoirs will all be taking part, and if you’re not feeling what one group is up to, there’s always the next street.

Wednesday: Look to the future at Signal: Visual

Interesting in how the music industry will progress in future? The Science Gallery can always be depended on for cool events, and this series on trends and creativity in music is no different. Their third instalment, Visual, examines the importance of visuals in live music and will host Ant O’Brien and Ronan McGrath of Generic People creating “immersive” live performances.

 

On Wednesday and Thursday: Get your head around tech at the Dublin Tech Summit

Image: Dublin Tech Summit

Dublin is lucky to be at the centre of a global tech conversation, and this year’s Tech Summit will be covering it all. Expect talks on artificial intelligence [AI], the internet of things [IoT] and sustainability, as well as speeches from some very interesting experts. Plus, if you’re a woman in tech, the Summit has teamed up with IMAGE to offer an exclusive discount on tickets, to celebrate their Women in Tech Awards which will be kicking off next week.
