John Healy talks to DCC Event Organiser, Tom Doyle about the upcoming Wood Quay Summer Sessions, on Near FM’s Northside Today.
The Wood Quay Summer Sessions return for a third year of free concerts from 1pm to 2pm every Thursday throughout July. Every week, music fans will have the opportunity to see new and upcoming acts, as well as established acts, from across a wide range of genres performing in the wonderful setting of the outdoor Wood Quay Amphitheatre in Dublin’s city centre.
Founded by Dublin City Council and presented in association with First Music Contact (FMC), Improvised Music Company (IMC), Music Network and Contemporary Music Centre (CMC), the Wood Quay Summer Sessions offers something for all music fans from trad to hip-hop, classical to contemporary and jazz to rock.
Throughout the four weeks, there will be food trucks for any hungry music fans as well as ticket giveaways to upcoming events and concerts.
