LGBTQ centred festival unveils line up and we have tickets to be won!
They kept the lid on this for MONTHS! But this morning Mother in association with MCD announced a brand new festival for the LGBTQ community. The amazing line up includes Clean Bandit, Lily Allen, Kelis, Gossip and a rainbow of performers & djs that play on the queer scene.
Mother is the now legendary club night which started in the basement of the Parliament Hotel which has provided a back drop for many happy disco moments. Mother expanded to the festival scene and of course began the Pride Bloc Party.
Love Sensation promoter and founder of Mother, Cormac Cashman, said “ Love Sensation feels like a natural progression for us. We’ve wanted to run a music festival for years, something that caters to our community and focuses on inclusivity, fun, good music, good times and sound people. We’ve been lucky enough to have amazing success with our Pride Block Party (now in its 9th year) so 2019 feels right for us to grow even bigger and launch our very own music Festival!”
Love Sensation, brought to you by the team behind Mother, will pop its festival cherry this August 17 th & 18 th 2019 at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Dublin. A next generation two-day music and arts festival aimed at the LGBT+ community and their many friends, Love Sensation sees LILY ALLEN, CLEAN BANDIT, GOSSIP & KELIS top the bill across the weekend. Who else could host the main stage for the weekend, there really is only one woman for the job, step forward Panti Bliss! Expect tons of surprises from The George stage, a Mother Dance Tent you won’t want to leave and a host of RuPaul Drag Queens brought to you by Dublin drag legends ‘Dragged Up’ including Monet X Change, Naomi Smalls, Jujubee, Laganja Estranja & Sonique!
