Bloco Atha Cliath is a live Urban music event with its roots in the South American tradition of the ‘Bloco’ or Carnival Street Party. Celebrating the diversity of the burgeoning Urban music scene in Ireland right now, the event features 100% original and home grown music from Dublin and Galway. With vocalists, MC’s, DJ’s and dancers Bloco Atha Cliath will bring a bit of that passionate ‘Bloco’ energy combined with Ireland’s next generation vibrancy.

Bringing together a collection of hip hop and other genres, and drawing on a mix of urban styles and diverse influences, the line up features established acts who have been making waves in recent times as well as some exciting new talents . There will also be dance performances by Go Dance for Change - a transcultural platform that uses dance as its primary tool to engage the Irish community with other cultures, and a roster of acts that bring the latest sounds, rhythms and rhymes from the Urban music community.
