December 14 - December 16
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 related restrictions concerning physical distancing, and the Irish government prohibition on public gatherings, currently until 3 May, at the earliest, Dublin Sound Lab has taken the decision to postpone this year’s MUSIC CURRENT festival, originally due to run from 14–18 April at Project Arts Centre, Dublin. They are aware that health and safety comes first, so to provide certainty for audiences, they have rescheduled all the participating artists to return later this year to stage this unique annual contemporary music event from 14–16 December 2020, at Project Arts Centre for its first year at the venue.
This year’s participating artists put in so much work and energy to planning and creating their respective shows for this year’s festival, and Dublin Sound Lab are thrilled to have the opportunity to run the festival in December. Fergal Dowling, Dublin Sound Lab and Music Current Festival Artistic Director, is delighted to have the chance to share the 2020 programme with audiences this December instead.
“We are disappointed that Music Current couldn’t run as planned and to have to postpone Music Current Festival this April, as we know that the current restrictions on events and travel have been difficult for musicians and audiences. But we have been busy talking with all our collaborators and greatly appreciate that the festival musicians, partners and the Project Arts Centre have made enormous efforts to ensure that the festival will go ahead this year. Now we are delighted to be able to announce that the full concert programme, as originally planned, will now take place at Project Arts Centre, 14–16 December. We are very much looking forward to bringing this extraordinary music programme to Dublin audiences.” – Fergal Dowling
