Dublin BowieFest Returns


The first batch of events have been announced for this year’s Dublin Bowie Festival, which is taking place around the city from January 5-10.

Among the standouts is An Audience With Jonathan Barnbrook taking place in NACD (10). The man behind the Blackstar album cover, which is still yielding its secret, the Londoner also worked on the Heathen, Reality and The Next Day sleeves.

Having impressed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Alex Walton brings his From Ibiza To The Norfolk Broads show to an as-yetunspeci­fied BowieFest venue (9). Also featuring the voice of comedian Rob Newman as the Thin White Duke, it had us bawling and laughing in equal measure when we saw it in Scotland.

If you missed the David Bowie Is in the V+A, fear not, because the documentar­y of the exhibition can be seen in the Lighthouse (6).

We’re also hearing whispers of another major attraction – stay tuned to for updates.

In the meantime, see dublinbowi­ for the rest of the confirmed events so far.
