Turning Vampire Mixtape
Date October 29th - October 29th
Location Vicar Street
An evening of scary songs and collaborations bringing together some of Ireland’s most successful and talented musicians for a serious night of music, giggles and ghouls – this is your Halloween Party with a devilish twist, with scary songs from Thriller to Ghostbusters and everything in between!
Bram Stoker Festival proudly presents a one-off special of the legendary Turning Pirate gigs, transforming into Turning Vampire for this very special event.
The line-up, so far, includes Lisa Hannigan, Saint Sister, Adam Matthews and Niamh Farrell (Hamsandwich) with many more to be confirmed in the coming weeks – all of which will be playing alongside the Turning Pirate house band – The Flux Capacitors.
Come along dressed to impress the living dead.
Since 2006, Turning Pirate’s Mix Tape shows have brought together some of Ireland’s most successful and talented musicians for a wide range of collaborative shows, from their annual New Year’s Eve party in Vicar Street to one off events like the packed 7,000 capacity street show for Waterford’s Harvest Festival.
With an unparalleled line up every event, singing their own songs, each other’s songs and smashing through the party songs of this year and yesteryear, this special edition of Turning Pirate promises to be better than all the rest, celebrating music from horror mavies featuring some of Ireland’s top musicians and special guests.
Previous lineups have included Lisa Hannigan, Conor O’Brien (Villagers), Richie Egan, Camille O’Sullivan, Bell X1, Jerry Fish, Declan O’Rourke, The Young Folk, Ye Vagabonds, Bronagh Gallagher, Wallis Bird and more. A special international guest star will be added to the bill for the festival special edition.
These are hi-octane gigs where the stage and audience are consistently blurred and an army of talent frequent the stage from 8pm right through until the early hours.
