Pillow Queens headline the SubSounds Youth Music Festival in Tallaght on Saturday


The second edition of the music festival aimed at young people takes place Saturday July 6th in TU Dublin, Tallaght.

SubSounds is a youth music collective for young people aged 14-18 based in Tallaght. Since 2004 it has worked with musicians from around South Dublin County, mentoring them in the composition, arrangement, performance and recording of original music.

Many Subsounds-associated bands including The Sadhbh Keane Band, Stale Bread, The SubSounds Collective and The Mockingbirds will be playing at the SubSounds Youth Music Festival on Saturday from 12:30pm to 9pm at TU Dublin in Tallaght. There’s an open-mic stage too.

To top it off, Pillow Queens are lending their support by playing a headline set on the day.

Pillow Queens have released their third album Name Your Sorrow, a fine collection of the band’s indie rock heart-soaked tales of overcoming and tribulations.

Tickets are free and available from Eventbrite.
