Get your groove on at the Dublin City Soul Festival

Lonely Planet say Dublin is ‘sprinkled in hedonism’ and this is never more evident than during a warm, carefree summer. Locals and enthused tourists fill the city streets, revelling in the natural vibrancy that makes Dublin one of Europe’s most appealing cities.

The Dublin City Soul Festival has become a regular on the Dublin festival circuit and is Ireland’s favourite feel-good festival. Features of the festival include The Soul Picnic where you can sample delights from the Food Village.

Tasty treats include delicious slow roasted pulled pork sandwiches, hickory smoked beef brisket, burgers, gourmet pizza, traditional fish n’ chips, Asian Fusion Cuisine, super salads, smoothies, juices, speciality coffees and of course the all-important ice creams! There is also the Love the City Music Trail where you can stroll along the Dublin streets, moving from venue to venue checking out all the fantastic entertainment on offer.

Hipster crowds and families come together to enjoy solo artists, acoustic wonders and booty-shaking rhythms. You’ll be amazed by the exciting on-street entertainment from all the festival buskers and street artists.

So grab your picnic blanket, suntan lotion and rain gear (you never know in Ireland) and make your way to Merrion Square Park to sample the relaxed Soul Festival atmosphere while enjoying the very best of local, national and international performers.

Soul Picnic is a friends & family affair, so bring your little brothers & sisters, mums & dads, friends and neighbours.
