An unbelievable line-up of musicians, photographers, artists, writers, DJs, designer are set to take over Dublin City for the jam packed festival .

The organisers of the festival have joined forces with Blackrock Castle Observatory, Dr Niamh Shaw and some of the country’s top astronauts and space experts to celebrate all things cosmos….

The second annual Dublin Bowie Festival happens on the 5th to the 10th of January next year, with the festival closing on the first anniversary of the Thin White Duke’s passing.

Music, movies, debate and tributes aplenty will spread to venues all over Dublin, in celebration of the man’s life and work, with Nialler9 picking his highlights over at his site.

Not to be missed are talks with playwright/Lazarus stage-show co-author Enda Walsh, and a vigil on the 10th to mark Bowie’s passing, with Bowie Raw performing acoustically, and space/time available for anyone that wishes to convey their feelings onstage through song or spoken word.

We are giving away a free download of our cover of Heroes by David Bowie for Record Store Day 2016 and ahead of our performance at An Evening of David Bowie in The Cracker Factory, NY on April 29th.
Dott moved from Ireland to Toronto, Canada this year and have evolved into a two-piece band. They have been experimenting with drum loops and home-recordings which will very soon culminate in the release of new material. New songs and US Tour dates to be announced very soon….
