The world’s largest mirrorball, awaiting a lift to Dublin

Metropolis Festival goes down from November 3-5 at the RDS, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4 the second annual installment of the winter-time weekender.

Aside from a world-class line-up of music, art, conversation and performance, it’ll also have a ginormous mirrorball.

Sez Jenny Headen:

The size of a 3 storey building and covered with over 3,000 mirrored tiles, each the size of an A4 page, the Mirror Ball will take 8 days to build and will require 4 cranes to hoist it up so it can spin and cast its disco spell on Metropolis goers.

Certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as THE biggest mirror ball in the world, it is just one of the many art installations that will be onsite for this multi-disciplined and dynamic festival.

So there you have it. And perfect for Grace Jones on the Saturday.

Tickets on-sale now.
