Festival of World Cultures 23rd to 25th July 2010

Featuring over 800 artists from 33 countries in 180 events, the Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Festival of World Cultures celebrates its 10th anniversary with its strongest line-up yet. With new dates at the end of July, the Festival provides audiences with the best multi-arts, multi-cultural holiday feast of the summer without ever needing to leave Ireland.

This year’s three-day festival – a Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council event – incorporates Irish premieres of some of the world’s most outstanding musicians, including: legendary Algerian King of Raï, Khaled; former Sigur Rós string section and Icelandic Cultural Award winners Amiina; Beninese voodoo funk sensations Orchestre Poly Rythmo de Cotonou; Malian superstar Rokia Traoré; and creative revolutionary Jah Wobble with his new project The Nippon Dub Ensemble.

With more than 387 hours of activities over the Festival weekend, the dlr Festival of World Cultures, named one of the Top 25 International Music Festivals by Songlines Magazine, is a diverse and fun-filled exploration of performance, world crafts, dance, art, faith, cuisine and music that attracts family, ethnic community and music audiences from Ireland and abroad. Its unique combination of free and great-value ticketed events is unrivalled in Ireland.
