For the music
that moves us

25th – 29th January 2023

TradFest Temple Bar has always embraced change.

With our celebrated annual festival we’ve transformed days into dates and venues into destinations.
We’ve worked to make events into experiences. Our experience has taught us that real change works both ways so we are expanding the ambition and scope of the TradFest project. We’re not changing our tune but we are adding some new verses.

We want this site to be a place where the trad community can come to learn, listen and re-live all of their festival highlights. With podcasts, video and original TV content this is multi-channel trad for the age we live in! We will continue to provide a stage for performance every January but now, between the jigs and the reels, we can provide a digital platform too. Not just a homepage, we like to think of it as a homeplace for Trad online. Welcome!
