‘Come together again’ for Culture Night 2021

The tagline couldn’t be more inclusive this year: “Come together — AGAIN.” The 16th edition of Culture Night takes place all over the island tonight with hundreds of online and offline events. 

Wherever you are, you won’t be very far from some sort of cultural happening, with a diverse and inclusive programme of music, theatre, film, performance art, tours, guided walks, street art, and anything else that might enrich your Friday. With scores of music events around the country, it’s better to hit the official site to find out what’s going on.

One highlight is the series of gigs by Give Us the Night — the campaign group led by spokesman, DJ and general Irish techno hero Sunil Sharpe, who are celebrating this week’s new Government report into finally redrafting Ireland’s Ireland’s night time economy after years of effort that finally crystallised nationwide during the pandemic.

Nightvision is a series of three separate audiovisual electronic music presentations — Meeting House Square in Dublin with Dream Cycles and Fran Hartnett, with AV by Contour; Cian O Ciobhain, Fran Hatnett and Lolz in St Nicholas’ Church in Galway, with “light fantastic” by Brendan Savage, and Enda Gallery, Citrus Fresh, Krome and Rumi at King John’s Castle in Limerick, with Visual Spectrum on visuals.
