A bit of a dream come true is happening this year for those who started the festival all the way back in 2010. On Sunday May 19th, Super Soul Sunday takes over Mountjoy Square Park for an epic day packed with music and fun for everyone!
This event is kindly supported by Dublin City Council and the North East Inner City Initiative (NEIC).
Main music stage
There will be a cracking line-up of performers taking to our big stage in the middle of the park including Dublin Gospel Choir, Euphonics, Shannon Gospel Choir, Decibelles, The LaLaLa Choir, SUSO Youth Choir, Sandymount Gospel Choir, Gardiner Street Junior Gospel Choir and more to be announced!
The park opens from 12pm and music will run until about 5pm on the main stage. Access to the concert is free for everyone.
Group singing workshops
There will be three workshops taking place throughout the day in our workshop tent, designed to give you a chance to try something new or sing with some brand new pals and create some magic.
The Youth Choir Workshop will take place from 12 – 1pm. It is tailored towards anyone aged 12 – 21 years, entry is free but spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
The Pop-up Choir Workshop will take place from 1.15 – 2.30pm. It is perfect for anyone who has wanted to give singing in a group or choir a shot for the first time in years, the very first time or absolutely anyone that likes to sing! Entry is free but spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
The Delorentos Gospel Workshop is the grand finale of our workshop sessions this year. Join members of the acclaimed Irish four-piece to transform one of their beautiful songs into something new with a gospel twist. The song will be performed on the main stage as the closing moment of our 10th anniversary festival so needless to say, it’s going to be something special. It takes place from 2.45 – 4.45pm and access is permitted only with a Festival Weekender Pass or a special workshop ticket available from Eventbrite at €20 ex.fees.
What else is going on?
For the littler gospel fans, we’ll have kid’s entertainers on site in the park throughout the day. We’ll also have delicious snacks available from Irish Village Markets food trucks to keep you pepped all day long.
But what about the weather?
We’ll be singing and dancing all day no matter the weather. The group singing workshops will take place in a covered tent but all other activities are outdoors so check that forecast before you leave home.
Bring the sunscreen, bring the rain poncho – a classic Irish summer Sunday awaits!
Will alcohol be served at this event?
No, this is an entirely alcohol-free event.
