Awesome line-up announced for 2023 Dublin Pride Block Party
The team at Mother are taking over Collins Barracks for two days in June.
JOE attended the Mother Pride Block Party in The National Museum of Ireland last summer, and after the party-filled weekend, we felt the event officially put Dublin on the global map as one of the best places to celebrate Pride. So we were very excited when today (Wednesday 19 April), Mother announced their full line-up of acts that will be helping Ireland celebrate Pride 2023.
In terms of headliners this year, incredible pop act Self Esteem will take to the stage on Friday 23 June, while dance maestro Purple Disco Machine will take over on Saturday 24 June.
Across the weekend, some megastars from Drag Race US and UK will be performing, including Bimini, Bianca Del Rio, Raja and Naomi Smalls, and there will be a host of Irish talent hitting the stages too, with Erica Cody, Brooke Scullion, Panti Bliss and Krystal Klear all announced.
On this year's line-up, Mother co-founder Lisa Connell said the following: "We’re really excited to share with the community our gorgeous Pride line-up and plans for the Pride Block Party 2023 in The National Museum of Ireland at Collins Barracks. We’ve been working hard to curate an exciting and diverse line-up and plan the mother of all parties for this special anniversary Pride season."
Additionally, Cormac Cashman, Mother co-founder said: "We’re really looking forward to the Pride Block Party this summer. With the show now a massive two day Pride dance party across Friday & Saturday, we’re excited to welcome our queer family back to the National Museum for what’s going to be our best party to date."
Tickets for the event are available from 9am from Thursday 20 April right here, with prices starting at €79.28 for the full weekend.
