About

Metropolis is Irelands first and award winning multi-stage, indoor winter music festival. Metropolis launched in the RDS in November 2015. We created a whole new experience in the Irish festivals, tailored for the Irish weather and the Irish audience. The last two years music has flowed out from bespoke stages housed in multiple warehouse spaces within the RDS, riveting Conversations took place on the stage of the Concert Hall and installations challenged the senses.

‘Metropolis is a festival that stands-out....It has a personality, a style, an ethos, that flows through every stage across in the RDS and comes to life in the bustling crowd and beautifully decorated set designs that characterise the festival as something else’
