“Dublin is a real hub for creativity across all disciplines, but not everybody gets a chance to be seen and heard, which is why The Works Festival was created. We want to shine a light our city’s artistry and undying independent spirit, all built around a venue that was once an important centre of our country’s infrastructure. It’s in the name – we want to showcase the whole works.”Dylan Henvey
“It is great for a new arts and music festival to be happening right on our doorstep in Inchicore. The ethos of The Works, celebrating the spirit of independence and providing an opportunity for DIY artists based right here in the city, really made us want to get involved. It’s bound to be a great night for everyone.”Joe Donnelly, Marketing Manager Rascals.
