DÚN LAOGHAIRE VINYL FESTIVAL
The much–anticipated Vinyl Festival took place in Dún Laoghaire from November 16th to 18th. The festival involved a collection of talks and discussions relating to all aspects of vinyl recordings from writing, recording, producing and performing, down to examining sleeve design and liner notes. The line-up of talented artists and special guests who participated over the three-day extravaganza included Horslips, Lenny Abrahamson, Don Letts, Gavin Friday, Bronagh Gallagher, Kevin Godley, Julie Feeney, Steve Averill and Adrian Dunbar along with many more and was a great success.

Brian O’ Flaherty and Neil Goodman, Directors of the Dún Laoghaire Vinyl Festival commented on how the festival came about; ‘A love of music, the excitement at the return of an old format that many felt was gone and a wish to celebrate it in our local community; these are the reasons we decided to create the Dún Laoghaire Vinyl Festival. Something for audiophiles of all ages and musical tastes, from punk to soul; recording to sleeve design, with vinyl the music is only part of the story.’
