    Fontaines D.C.

    Iveagh Gardens

    Dublin

    fontaines

    One of the most stratospheric rises we've seen in some time has been folk-punks Fontaines D.C., and they've announced some of their biggest Irish shows to date at Iveagh Gardens on July 3 & 4.

    Their debut album Dogrel was Mercury-nominated, they've toured endlessly with labelmates Idles, and although worldly in influence, distinctly allude to Irish vernacular in everything they've done thus far. One year postponed from their initial Iveagh dates, they've since released second album, A Hero's Death. Check them out Live on KEXP.

    Tickets are available from Ticketmaster. Doors open at 6.30pm.
