2015 Liverpool Irish Festival

Events 28 Oct 15

A year ago the Liverpool Irish Festival was revamped into a contemporary exploration of Irish culture. What does that really mean? Well, and this is the part that makes everyone go “Huh?”, they had Irish hip-hop this year. Irish. Hip. Hop. Yup. Two guys, two mics and a DJ dropping a beat. Best gig of the event imho. Rusangano Family had *so* much energy. It was crazy.

They also had these things called the “Meta-perceptual helmets”. Basically they were steampunk-esque chrome helmets that allowed the wearer to see the world like certain animals. They had a cat, giraffe, hammerhead shark, a gecko and a horse. Quite a fascinating experience. The gecko let you see both front and back. Hard to wrap your head around. read more

This year there was a new refreshed version of the Liverpool Irish Festival with Gaelic football (mens and womens), music at St Georges Hall, music in pubs, screen printing, ghostly story telling for kids, electronic Irish music at the Palm House and whiskey tasting at the Belvedere Pub. It’s been a hugely varied festival to photograph. Here are some of the highlights.
