New Music Dublin 2018 announces with great regret that all scheduled festival concerts and events on Saturday and Sunday have been cancelled due to recent well-documented weather events and the impact on artist travel, logistics and rehearsal scheduling.
We would like to apologise to all New Music Dublin customers, participants and staff for any disappointment and inconvenience this will cause. This festival was an enormous undertaking for us all with over 540 people due to perform in 26 events on 10 stages over four days.
We were enormously encouraged by the enthusiastic response to the programme by our wonderful musicians, composers and most importantly the public. New Music Dublin is working to reschedule as many as possible 2018 festival events later in the year: details to follow.
In addition, the overwhelming goodwill has heartened us and made us determined to return next year with a 2019 festival programme that will once again excite adventurous minds and curious ears.
We would like to thank the organisations that make this festival possible: particularly the management and staff of the National Concert Hall and the incredible musicians and teams of RTÉ Orchestras, Choirs and Quartets, and RTÉ Lyric fm, who worked with the festival closely to deliver what we hoped was going to be an amazing experience for our audiences; alongside the financial and moral support of The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon.
New Music Dublin wishes to advise that tickets for cancelled events will be refunded in the coming days. Please follow New Music Dublin social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) for the latest news and updates.
