AIDLINK FOR TURKANA – 8pm, Saturday 2nd November 2019 – National Stadium, Dublin
This Saturday sees a strong line up of Irish artists take to the stage of the National Stadium and all for a very good cause! Artists such as Inni-K, Jerry Fish, The Pale, Cry Monster Cry and more will perform, and all in aid of a very good cause, to “raise funds and hope for some of the most isolated and marginalised people in Africa- the Turkana in northern Kenya”.
“Now in its third year, Aidlink For Turkana, presented by Born Optimistic, brings together choirs and a host of Irish singer-songwriters to perform their songs in a completely new way.
So successful have the previous events been that this year Aidlink for Turkana is moving to a bigger venue, the National Stadium, to present an event that will fill the room with glorious song.”
