The Dublin Bowie Festival, the biggest arts festival in the world dedicated to David Bowie makes a return in 2023. It’s on from today, January 10th and goes on till the 15th. There is a selection of special events which includes live music, Q & A, memorabilia and merch, and of course movies, concerts, shows, and documentaries…
You can find the details to a full selection of the programme’s events here.
These events will take place across different locations in Dublin. One of the major draws at the festival will be Gerry Leonard, who was Bowie’s guitarist, musical director and co-songwriter. He will have two headline shows.
You can start with a photographic exhibition – these are photographs of Bowie by Philippe Auliac. Since first shooting Bowie in 1972, the French photographer has captured the rock icon many times over his long career. Many of these images are now deemed classic portrayals and for this extensive exhibition Philippe will have over 60 photographs on display as well as an audio visual screening of further images and some rare interviews with the star man. There’s also the ever popular Silent Disco with the headsets tuned into Bowie classics galore.
