Dublin Bus are hosting performances on buses this Culture Night

Words: Ellen Kenny

It’s like when people perform on the New York subway, except you’re actually consenting to these performances.

As the official transport partner of Dublin Culture Night, Dublin Bus have created three new routes to get Dubliners to and from popular cultural venues throughout the city, free of charge. And to keep passengers entertained as they travel around the city, Dublin Bus are offering a host of popup performances from some of the best talent in Dublin.

Tailored to the cultural destinations passengers are travelling to, the popup performances range from energy funk and hip-hop to banjos and accordions.

Performances on offer

Cultural production collective Black Canvas will offer multidisciplinary performances and platform diverse voices in the Irish R&B and hip hop community. Cooks But We’re Chefs will combine elements of funk, hip-hop, jazz and soul for an absolutely spicy bus performance.

BASHT is a style-bending funk band who will take you through all the bending roads of Dublin city, while Regina George, known as Dublin’s very own life sized Barbie and Ireland’s top dancing drag queen, will be bringing world-class drag performances to Dublin Bus.

Other performances on Dublin Bus include Grooveline, Fiadh Fitzpatrick, Ellen Scott and Peter Bennett.

We all know how hard it is to walk up those stairs and walk on a moving bus. Now imagine doing an entire live performance without falling flat on your face down those stairs. These are some performances not to be missed.

The three routes offered by Dublin Bus will take passengers through the south, north and centre of Dublin. The buses will be in operation from 18:00 and will depart every 20 minutes from routes starting at College Green, Bachelor’s Walk and Aston Quay until 22:40 on the College Green and Bachelor’s Walk routes and 23:00 on the Aston Quay route.
