WATCH: Damien Rice, U2, Imelda May and more perform at Dublin's annual Christmas Eve busking session

It's become a staple of Christmas time in Ireland.

Some of the biggest names in Irish music came together outside Dublin's Gaiety Theatre once more for a huge busking session on Christmas Eve.

Among the stars were Bono, The Edge, Imelda May, The Coronas, Damien Rice and Glen Hansard.

A huge crowd gathered to watch the now-annual concert, and it looked like there was a lovely vibe in town.

Many in attendance have been sharing footage from the impromptu gig on social media, including Damien Rice playing a blistering, slowed-down cover of Radiohead's classic track 'Creep.'

The entire ensemble also teamed up for a vintage rendition of Christmas classic 'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)', originally sung by Darlene Love in 1963. U2 also gave a blast of 'Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way.'

Bono and The Edge also played a stirring version of O Night Divine, which can be watched below thanks to MCD concert photographer Tom Flynn.
