External Sounds Djs @ Ths Sibin Festival

Posted by external sounds on march 24, 2009

The External Sounds Djs have been invited to play at this years Sibin Festival, which takes place on Saturday 2nd May 2009. The festival takes place at Man O' War, Balbriggian, Co. Dublin. it kicks off at midday with the External Sounds dj's playing from 4pm - 6pm. With six stages, 50 acts and 14 hours of pure fun and quality music, Sibín will bring some of the Irelands most popular and most neglected music genres together, guaranteeing a mad session of good music and great fun!

Sibín is brought to you by veterans of the Irish and European festival circuit who have brought their collective experience and love of partying together to make a festival that stands out from the crowd. While the last few years has seen an explosion of festivals around Ireland, we felt the need to represent the above styles of music in an intimate environment which was as close to Dublin as possible so everyone could enjoy it.

2009 it may be, and yes we are fully licensed, but we intend to recapture the magic and spirit of the late night sessions of yore with our Sibín. Musically we want to promote both new and old sounds, electronic and acoustic alike. It will also be a celebration of artistic creativity and expression of all kinds, with the venue being transformed into a visual and auditory wonderland for the day.

The site itself, on the grounds of one of the oldest pubs in the country, is in a beautiful rural part of north Co. Dublin. We want to keep it that way and so we have placed the ‘leave no trace’ ethic at the very core of the event. The festival hopes to promote ecologically aware living and sustainability, and we are confident that festival goers will share in this vision and minimize their impact on the local environment.
