Dublin Bowie Festival 2016


If there’s three better consecutive words than Dublin Bowie Festival we haven’t heard them. Making its inaugural outing at The Grand Social on Saturday, January 9 and Sunday, January 10, it will celebrate Davy Jones’ musical towering legacy via “live performances, banter, movies, table quiz, collectors merch and more.” With Bowie’s highly-anticipated twenty-fifth album Blackstar set for release the day before the festival’s launch, this is a perfectly-timed opportunity to revisit a bona fide music legend.
