Dublin Event Guide (19-10-15 – 25-10-15)


This year, Halloween seems to have grown! There’s two weekends of spooky fun, with the Bram Stoker Festival and the Horrorthon taking place this weekend to go with the Bank Holiday Weekend. The Stoker festival seems to grow every year, and this year is no exception. The Macnas Twilight Procession is possibly the highlight.

It’s also a pretty fab week for gigs, with Father John Misty, the Tallest Man on Earth, Ezra Furman and Beach House along with a whole lot more. There’s also the Interlude Festival at the RHA with bands such as Little x’s for eyes, movies, food, DJ’s etc.
