If you, like us, are looking forward to the exceptional line-up that the forthcoming Metropolis festival has in store in just a few short weeks, you'll also be happy to know that the fun doesn't have to end when the lights go up at the RDS.

The festival will host several afterparties in Dublin - ten intimate gigs spread across November 7th and 8th, in fact - after the main event has ended.

They include DJ sets from the likes of Questlove from The Roots, Hot Chip, Jamie xx and DJ Greg Wilson, all of which will only be available to Metropolis ticket holders. Mind you, you will still have to buy tickets for the additional shows, which you can gain entry to along with your day ticket or your weekend wristband. They're on sale here.

Questlove - Sugar Club
Hot Chip [DJ Set] - Button Factory
Flight Facilities [DJ Set] + Alle Farben - District 8
Discotekken W/ Greg Wilson - Bunker

**Entrance only Valid with Sunday/Weekend Festival Ticket/Wristband**


The festival runs at the RDS on November 7th (12pm - midnight) and 8th (12pm - 11.30pm) and tickets are on sale from usual outlets. Weekend Tickets are €145.50; day tickets are €79.50.
