Spending New Years In Dublin? Here’s What You Can Expect From The NYE Festival

What a way to celebrate!

We have to ring in the year somehow and how better than with a massive celebration in our capital city!

We already knew that Westlife would be taking to the stage to ring in 2023 but now we have the full line-up.

There is a stellar lineup of Irish musicians and DJs set to perform at the brand-new Festival Village on North Wall Quay on New Year’s Eve.

The Blizzards, Tolü Makay, Bradley Marshall, Dara Quilty’s Bangers, 2FM’s Emma Power, Katie Phelan, Kingfishr and Rachel Mae Hannon who will all perform as part of the Midnight Family Matinee (between 4pm – 7pm) and Westlife’s headline performance (between 8pm – 11pm).

Revellers can enjoy these performances, across the 4 stages in the Festival Village, as part of their ticket admission.

Get ready to ring in 2023 in true celebratory style with Westlife who headline the brand-new Festival Village on New Year’s Eve, with special guests Gavin James and Lyra.

Or you can share a magical moment with family and friends at the family-friendly Midnight Family Matinee, a very special earlier countdown event with live performances from Gavin James, Lyra and Brad Heidi.

And if you don’t want the party to end there, then worry not as there will be New Year’s Day Celebrations in Meeting House Square, Temple Bar on 1 January 2023.

You can enjoy an afternoon of live music with some of Ireland’s greatest live performers, including Liam Ó Maonlaí, Cormac Begley, Clare Sands and Lorraine Nash.

The Pride Of Plains Marching Band, street performances and tie your New Year’s Resolutions to the special Resolution Tree. This is a free non-ticketed event.

Tickets for the New Year’s Eve events are on sale now from ticketmaster.ie.
