Kneecap for 3Olympia Theatre December show


Kneecap have announced a special December headliner in Dublin before Christmas.

The Belfast rap trio of Mo Chara, DJ Provaí and Moglaí Bap will play 3Olympia Theatre in Dublin on December 12th 2023.

Tickets from €27.40 plus fees on sale Friday 26th May at 10am.

Kneecap released the ‘It’s Been Ages’ single in March, and the band have a full-length film feature that is being shown at Cannes Film Festival, as part of the GREAT8 showcase at the festival.

The dark comedy film is a fictional version based on the band’s formation, written and directed by Rich Peppiatt (“One Rogue Reporter”) that has just wrapped shooting in Northern Ireland.

“We’re buzzing to show people a side of Belfast that isn’t about guns, bombs and death” Kneecap said of the film, “To give an insight into the youth culture that has been born out of that madness – we all needed a break from it and there’s revenge in our laughter.”

With North American tour dates announced for October, as well as sets their debut Iceland set at Iceland Airwaves; Kneecap are set to go international.

Kneecap is a movement, one about upending preconceptions about language and place, and reimagining what rap can be as a creative and cultural force, rooted in community, craic, and defiance.
