What Now? Music

We have an absolute wealth of musical talent taking to our 3 stages over the weekend.

Local promoters Citóg and Feast are curating the Galway Arts Centre stage on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Daytime on our outdoor stage in the Aras na nGael yard includes an all ages open mic in conjunction with Foróige on Saturday and live performances Sunday afternoon. The yard after dark includes a plethora of electronica.

Inside the Aras na nGael, after the market on both days, we’ll have everything from trad to indie to electronica, including the Spats Columbo E.P. launch on Sunday evening.

Entry is free until 7p.m., €10 per night thereafter or €17 for the weekend. Many thanks to Galway Sound Engineer & P.A. Hire and MusicMaker Dublin for running and supplying gear to the Galway Arts Centre stage.
