NYF Dublin

As part of New Years Festival Dublin (NYF Dublin), MCD is proud to announce the Three Countdown Concert featuring The Coronas, Fatboy Slim, Kila, Ryan Sheridan & Little Hours at 3Arena this New Years Eve, 31 December 2015.

The NYF Dublin Festival is an initiative by Fáilte Ireland in association with Dublin City Council, which see the city embrace the annual tradition with musical guests and more performing on the night.

Participants in this year’s festival will be able to join in the magical candlelit Procession of Light and take part in the World Record Attempt for the Biggest Bodhrán Session amongst other activities.  Festival-goers can also watch as city streetscapes come alive with Luminosity 3D animations and be spellbound by the outstanding Spoken Word Festival and Story@work and check out the Love Dublin events and culture trails happening across the city. Eventually, revellers can ring in the New Year at either the Three Countdown Concert or the NYF Street Fest and, the day after, look to the future with positivity at Resolution Day.
