Lynk’s July Event Guide
Summer is here! The weather is finally picking up and luckily for you, there are plenty of events taking place outdoors in Dublin in July. Check out our top picks below in this month’s Dublin Event Guide.
1st July – 7th July
Trinity Summer Series
This series of gigs set in the iconic grounds of Trinity College have become a highlight of the Summer. This year’s series sees Vampire Weekend, Foals and Janelle Monáe, among others take the stage. These open air concerts set in the middle of the city centre offer a fantastic alternative to those who can’t travel to festivals normally situated outside of Dublin.
5th July – 7th July
Longitude is back and bigger than ever. Although they had to unfortunately announce the cancellation of Chance the Rapper, the replacement Stormzy will definitely be a fan-favourite. Longitude has once again opted for a hip-hop heavy line-up with the likes of Future, Cardi B, ASAP Rocky and Irish duo Kneecap set to perform. Making your way home from Marlay Park has been notoriously hard in recent years so be sure to pre-book your Lynk taxi!

Dublin Maker Festival
Dublin Maker is a free to attend, community run event. This festival takes the form of a “show and tell” experience where inventors and makers will have an opportunity to showcase their creations at individual booths in a carnival atmosphere. If you have a curious young mind in your household, this is a great opportunity for them to meet Makers and to learn what they themselves could one day do. Check out some highlights from last year’s festival below!
