Tradfest started out in 2006 as a small niche traditional music festival, a first for Dublin. It showcases the cream of both Irish and international trad and folk artists while also providing a stage to promote the next generation of Irish musicianship. From modest beginnings the festival has gone from strength to strength. Although TradFest today is Ireland’s largest festival of traditional music it now also features artists from the worlds of folk, nu-folk, and even (whisper it) rock and roll!
We invite you to join us, to feel every note. This is more than just trad, we call it Radical Trad.
