This weekend, Liberty Vibe, an outdoor performance in the middle of the city, is expected to bring life to Dublin’s North Inner City. This Saturday, October 22, from 3 pm to 9 pm, there will be a number of live events at Liberty Park, which is tucked away off Dublin’s Foley Street.
At Liberty Vibe, some of Dublin’s most innovative musicians will perform alongside some newer local icons, and the music will vary from pop to R&B, funk to electronica, hip hop to jazz. The best aspect is that everyone is welcome to attend the outdoor concert, which is totally free.
The event in Liberty Park will be headlined by Irish R&B star Cosha. The musician, who was born and raised in Wicklow and Dublin, made her Glastonbury debut in 2017 and has worked with everyone from Charli XCX to Nile Rodgers. There is no way you want to miss her set!
Along with the electric punk duo Nixer and the urban dance group Black Canvas Curations, the seven-piece Dublin-based band Cooks But We’re Chefs, noted for their diverse blend of jazz, soul, and hip hop, will also be performing.
Sister duet Zeztra, Chloe Harris, and Temi NLA, three artists from the North Inner City, are scheduled to play and dazzle the audience on their own land. Conan Wynne, better known as Contour, will provide stage graphics for the duration of the six-hour event.
Dublin City Council organized the event with help from the Local Live Performance Programming Scheme.
Ahead of the event, Dublin City Arts Officer Ray Yeates issued a call to action to the general public, saying: “The intimate concert will further demonstrate the potential for similar transient cultural events and happenings. One of the few positive takeaways from the pandemic was that it helped us to re-imagine how we could use outdoor spaces for live events.
“It is wonderful to see so many local artists playing at the concert. Music sounds better shared, and I would invite the local community, as well as visitors to the city, to come be inspired by our local talent.”
A five-minute walk from Dublin’s Connolly Station lies Liberty Park, which is situated on Foley Street next to the Dublin City Arts Office, The LAB Gallery, and DanceHouse.
