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.
