Metropolis is a brand new indoor winter music festival coming Dublin’s RDS on November 7th and 8th.
The event, which features 8 different arenas, will play host to some incredible DJs and live music from some of the world’s leading artists such as Chic, Hot Chip, The Roots, Jamie xx, Mark Ronson and many more.
There will also be Conversations (a series of panels and talks) which will be hosted in the Concert Hall within the RDS, as well as some amazing art installations and creative spaces to explore. This includes a stage made by Bristol’s finest Arcadia, replete with moving parts and pyrotechnics, and visuals by Algorithm, just back from hosting a stage at Bestival on the Isle of Wight.
On top of all that, in conjunction with Dublin’s favourite art-house cinema The LightHouse, Metropolis will be screening two films – 24 Hour Party People and Dave Chapelle's Block Party on Saturday and Sunday respectively.
