Event Details


18/04/2013 – 18/04/2013

Galway Arts Centre is proud to present GAC(h) Duine. This three day music event, at 47 Dominick St, showcases many of Ireland and Galway’s own treasure trove of talent. From the 18th until the 20th of April, not only are we are hosting this unique opportunity to sample a diversity of performances, there will also be a chance for the aspiring musician to better their skills. There will be daily workshops with accredited musicians throughout the event, ready to teach Galway’s potential stars singing, song-writing and guitar. As well as this, each evening we have a series of popular live acts, performing in a variety of different musical styles. 

When the creative minds of the Galway Arts Centre and the extreme sounds of this town get together, the result is worth seeing. As part of GAC(h) Duine, we thought it was appropriate to have a tea party. Not just any tea party. This is a Hardcore Tea Party. On Saturday the 20th of April, the people of Galway will be rocking out to live music while sipping our finest blend and sampling the most delightful cucumber sandwiches

Our line – up features indie, rock, punk, and everything in between. Tickets are available from the Galway Arts Centre, or at the door on the night. We will also have DJing form Nosician on Thursday and Friday night.
