Fringe Festival

Top Acts at the Dublin Fringe Festival

Calling all Culture Vultures!  The Fringe festival is rolling back into town for 16 joyful days in 80 venues:)  Over 30,000 spectators are expected to attend this showcase of contemporary performing arts.  With so much to choose from, it can be hard figuring out the best event to attend. There are live performances for everyone ranging from Cabaret, Circus, Club, Comedy, Dance, Gig, Spoken Word, Talks and Theatre. Our team of Social Energizers have done the research on the hottest events in town so you don’t have to!

Fringe Festival at the Laughter Lounge

Fresh from their triumphant tour of the Edinburgh Festival, Comedic Duo Danny O’Brien and Damian Clarke will be storming Dublin’s fringe with their Side Splitting Show. Ireland’s favourite adopted Aussie,  Damian won the Amused Moose’s People’s choice awards so his Comedic Pedigree is clear ( and he could play for the Irish Football team if called upon). The Comedic Powerhouse sold out their 30 shows in Edinburgh so book early as this show is guaranteed to sell out.
