Travelmag : Best Dublin Festivals and Fairs Spring’16

Travelmag gives a rundown on the best Dublin festivals and fairs this Spring.

Here's what Paul Joseph has to say about Dublin Dance Festival:

'Anyone under the misapprehension that Irish music starts and ends with Riverdance, Boyzone and U2 could not be more wrong. Across the Emerald Isle, every genre of music is celebrated and none more fervently than Dance. Each May, Dublin plays host to the Dublin Dance Festival which brings together dance artists and choreographers from across the world. After the inaugural festival in 2002, the event has grown exponentially and is now one of the biggest events on Ireland’s cultural calendar. This year sees a typically diverse line-up of acts, with highlights including an urban-fusion piece by Greek choreographer Patricia Apergi, US ballet master Alonzo King and Olivier Award-winning choreographer Crystal Pite. Pop along to discover new and inspirational artists from the vibrant world of dance music.'

In his article Paul also mentioned International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival, Dublin Kite Festival, Silk Road Film Festival,Dublin Bay Prawn Festival, Dublin International Game Music Festival, Dublin Port River Fest and Five Lamps Art Festival.
