Mother and St. Patrick’s Festival present Cultúr Club at the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks this Paddy’s Eve. The joint event unites the essential ideals of the St. Patrick’s Festival with those of the LGBTQ+ clubbing community, culminating in a melting pot of contemporary Irish culture and free expression.

Cultúr Club returns with a multi-stage queer dance party featuring live, DJ, and drag talent from the LGBTQ+ community. The event will take place across three stages, including a 3500-capacity main stage dance tent, a drag cabaret circus tent, and an outdoor arena in Clarke Square. Musical styles range from electronic and disco to trad, techno, and more.

Mother co-founder Cormac Cashman said“We’re very happy to have Cultuìr Club, in all its queer glory, return to the beautiful site of the National Museum of Ireland at Collins Barracks on March 16th. As the opening party of our national festival, Cultuìr Club is our annual love letter to the Irish dancefloor and our first big festival outing of the year. We’re proud to programme some of Ireland’s finest DJs, drag queens, and performers to help us celebrate St. Patrick’s Eve and kick start the weekend’s festivities.”

Elaine Mai, MayKay, Ruth Kavanagh, Ghostboy, and Rocky T Delgado will perform at Cultúr Club. DJs Kelly-Anne Byrne and Puzzy Wrangler will also feature, along with dancers, kinksters, and drag artists.

Speaking about the continuation of the collaboration with Mother, St. Patrick’s Festival CEO, Richard Tierney said ‘We have talked in the past about how we needed to find an inclusive space in our programme for our wonderful LGBTQ+ community – but actually, we’ve come a long way from that now. This ongoing partnership, and the cementing of this incredibly joyous show at the heart of the Festival really shows that LGBTQ+ club culture IS Irish culture.
