A Celebration of Dublin’s Rave Culture is coming to The Bernard Shaw

Hosted by 909originals and Bodytonic, Analog Rhythms will celebrate the formative years of clubbing in Dublin, from the rave dens of Sides and The Asylum, via the stylish dance floors of The Pod and The Kitchen, through to the ‘big room energy’ of the Temple Theatre and RedBox… and a lot more besides.

Through photos, flyers, videos and tales from the dance floor, Analog Rhythms will showcase what was a period of massive change for the Dublin nightlife, the reverberations of which are still being felt today.

If you’ve ever spent a lost weekend drifting from pub to club to afterparty, got engrossed in the beats of a subterranean techno den, or just immersed yourself in the magic of the Irish capital on a Saturday night – this one’s for you. See you front left.
