Buskers Festival


A variety of busking acts from around the country performed in Smithfield Square on Sunday 8th October as part the Busker Fleadh! Organised by Dublin City Council, this free family event showcased the best of independent music and performance in an electrifying atmosphere.

The line up of performers covered a range of genres, ages and nationalities, from folk band Sonnets and Sisters to 14-year-old Mullingar native Ashley Tubridy and Australian artist Sam Brittain. High Hopes Choir, Ireland’s first choir for homeless people, also made a special appearance on the square treating the crowd to an uplifting and unforgettable performance.

Aside from the musical talents, spectators wandered the cobbles of Smithfield and enjoyed the street spectacle of the Dublin Circus Project, took part in MaSamba Drumming Workshops and watched a special screening of Sing Street in the Light House Cinema.

The Busker Fleadh was held in association with the Smithfield Stoneybatter Food Festival, a gastronomy fare taking place from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th October 2017.

The Busker Fleadh was brought to you by Dublin City Council and is supported by 98FM.
