Yes! It’s back for it’s second year in a row, but this time it’s bigger and better than ever before. The Blues, Roots and Brass festival is a unique and exciting event based around the three genres of music that have been taking centre stage in recent years, not only in Ireland, but around the world.

The whole event will take place in the newly named Camden Quarter, which includes four stages in two venues: Whelan’s and the Opium Rooms. Bringing in music enthusiast’s O’Hara’s Irish Craft beer and the support from Failte Ireland has brought the Blues, Roots, and Brass festival to a new level of programming that will put this festival on the map as one of Dublin’s coolest free summer festivals.

This festival is all about home grown music and this best represents what the independent brewing company, O’Hara’s, and the good people at Failte Ireland are all about!

So come join us at this incredible free event, and listen to some of the nation’s premiere blues, roots and brass musicians!
