Tito, Jermaine, Jackie and Marlon will headline on Friday 3 August — the first date of what’s now a three-day festival expected to attract some 30,000 people to Dun Laoghaire’s waterfront over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
Other performers over Friday 3, Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 August include US jazz sensation Kamasi Washington, Irish electronic duo I Am The Cosmos and hip hop legends the Sugarhill Gang.
That’s not to mention the feasts available at the Eatyard, including the Irish Street Food Awards; fun for families in the Kidsyard and Gamesyard; and a party atmosphere on the waves in the Boatyard.
Tickets for Beatyard 2018 go on sale next Wednesday 7 February at 9am. For more details visit the Beatyard website.
Beatyard features among a host of events at Dun Laoghaire Harbour this summer that also includes the return of the Red Bull Flugtag on Sunday 20 May.
Details are forthcoming on the Flugtag, which drew 100,000 spectators on its last appearance in 2011.
