A Pilot dance event is happening at the Button Factory on September 30th


 As announced today as part of the Night-Time Economy Taskforce report, a pilot dance event is also due to take place on  September 30th in The Button Factory, organised by Hidden Agenda and District 8 in consultation with Give us the Night.

The event will help develop a safe template and pilot the logistics of event ticketing, venue admittance, the impact of antigen testing, ventilation and monitoring to ensure a safe and financially sustainable return to indoor events.

There will be 450 people attending, which is 60% of the venue’s maximum capacity, and attendees must, according to current guidelines, produce a Digital Covid Certificate. Antigen testing will also be required and will be carried out close to the venue.

The gig details were just announced and playing are:

  • Sunil Sharpe
  • Cailin
  • R Kitt
  • Kelly Anne Byrne
  • Sim Simma
  • Breen
  • Cáit
  • DART
  • Same Greenwood

Doors open at 8:30pm – 3am. The event is over 18s and ID is required. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 17 September on Eventbrite.

The National Concert Hall is also to develop a pilot late-night event, exploring the challenges involved and developing best-practice guidance for promoters, artists and venue operators.
