In less than two weeks, the very first Metropolis Festival will be taking place in Dublin’s RDS. You’ll be sufficiently warmed up sans the dreaded winter blues with the very, very best in cutting edge music, talks and art installations, set across eight stages and spaces.

We’ve shared some of what to expect when you come to join the Mother City with live music and DJsConversations / Spoken Word (with more announcements to come) and the unbelievable, flaming, interactive space that is Arcadia’s Afterburner Stage! Now we want to let you know what’s in store when the doors close at the RDS…

The party will keep going on right across the city with ten intimate shows across 2 nights, 7/8 November exclusively for Metropolis ticket holders. You can expect to get up close and personal at DJ sets from the likes of Questlove from The Roots, Jamie xx and DJ Greg Wilson. Go check out Hot Chip DJ in The Button Factory or hit up Flight Facilities’ Decades Party in District 8 (their first Irish DJ set since 2013).  If you’re looking for something a little more off the beaten track, you can check out Benji B in Bar Tengu or Maribou State in Soder & Ko. The choice is yours!

So how does it work? Grab your Afterparty tickets for the show you want to see right here.

Once you get to the venue, show your Afterparty ticket along with your festival ticket or wristband! ***You must also have your Day/Weekend Festival ticket on you/with you.*** These shows are also strictly over 18s
