Following a massive inaugural outing last year, Dublin festival Metropolis have revealed Grace Jones, DJ Shadow, Solomun and Moderat are amongst the first acts set to play its second installment from November 3-5.

Presented by POD and Hidden Agenda, this year’s festival will return to RDS at the end of the year after a sell-out first year. Set in the industrial array of warehouses and venues with the RDS complex, the indoor event offers a tapestry of music, art installation performance and conversation over 6 days.

With many more acts still to be announced, SBTRKT (DJ Set), Booka Shade – Movements 10, BADBADNOTGOOD, Crystal Castles, The Sugarhill Gang, Fatima Yamaha, Fakear and Girl Band are amongst the first acts confirmed to play.

Early Bird Weekend tickets go on sale at 9am this Thursday, August 11 at 129 inc. booking fee. Tickets for the DJ Shadow Opening Party (Thursday 3) also go on sale this Thursday at 9am priced €39.50 inc. booking fee, whilst a combination of both the Opening Party and Weekend Tickets cost €164.50 inc. booking fee.
