About this event

This year is the 60th anniversary of the only time that The Beatles ever played in Dublin (November 7th, 1963) and the Dublin Beatles Festival is going to mark the occasion in style on November 3rd, 4th, 5th and 7th.

There will of course be lots of live music – including BEATLES FOR SALE playing the exact same set of songs which The Beatles played in Dublin in 1963… 60 years to the night after it originally happened. And HAMBURG BEAT are coming over from the UK to play the raw rock ‘n’ roll which The Beatles played in Germany in the early 1960s. There will be FREDA KELLY, a stage play, a Beatles Table Quiz, and lots more!

The line-up includes:

Freda Kelly interviewed by Tom Dunne

Hamburg Beat

Beatles For Sale

The Newspaper Taxi Men

The Nothing Is Real ‘Quiz of the Decades’

Polythene Jam play ‘Abbey Road’

Let It Be-atles

Fiach Moriarty
