Last summer, Westmeath indie rockers The Academic played an unforgettable sold out gig at Iveagh Gardens. They will make a very welcome return this summer on 19 July 2019 to play Iveagh Gardens once again. The 4 piece have enjoyed a meteoric rise since releasing their debut EP ‘Loose Friends’ just 3 years ago. A Choice Music Prize nomination for their debut single ‘Different’ was followed by sold out shows and tours across the US the UK and Europe with over 40,000 tickets sold.
