4) Day & Night Parties, 5th & 6th August @ Pallas Studios & Tengu  

"We take over a schoolyard in Dublin 8 and install a big ol' soundsystem, DJs play all day, the sun shines, there's food, it's BYOB (ie affordable), your pals are there, our pals are there, everyone is sound, pets are allowed, kids are allowed until maybe 7ish, it's a party for people who like listening to music and dancing to it. Actually it's 2 parties. When things come to an end at 9pm we head down to Tengu to dance some more. Musically you can expect a broad range of stuff, from soul / funk / disco / afro / brazil / reggae / hip hop / house music et al. We're music obsessives and collecting music to play at parties is what we do, all day every day." More info: https://www.facebook.com/events/325774551212760
