Another Love Story announce Young Hearts Run Free programme


Another Love Story has announced the Splendid Torches programme, curated by Young Hearts Run Free.

Having announced its main lineup for its 10th edition a couple of weeks ago, Another Love Story has added a strand of programming to its festival from Aug 23rd to 25th at Killyon Manor, Co. Meath.

Splendid Torches is introduced with a George Bernard Shaw quote.

“..This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognised by yourself as a mighty one. Being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it what I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations…”

Man and Superman (1903), George Bernard Shaw (1856 – 1950)

Young Hearts Run Free’s Siobhan Kane has curated a lineup of music, DJs, conversation, the YHRF Folk Club – two improvised late night folk session, special guest appearances, and that trademark intimate and heartfelt atmosphere. at the Moon River area at ALS.

YHRF at ALS has inevitably leant towards a culturally rich programme of intimate, community focused music, talks, dj sets & more – and has found a home on Moon River, our intimate stage nestled amongst the trees on the banks of the River Deel, in our oasis of calm – The Mellow Meadow.

Young Hearts Run Free has run as a freewheeling multidisciplinary event series since 2008, and all for the incredibly good cause of The Dublin Simon Community.
