30th, 31st May – 1st June 2014 (Bank Holiday Weekend)Meeting House Square, Temple Bar, Dublin 2

A 3-day festival of dirty jazz, debauched and filthy foreign rhythms under the canopies in Meeting House Square, Temple Bar, Dublin.


A fitting response to the anti-jazz movement of 1930's Ireland!


More on the 1934 anti-jazz movement.

“Music borrowed from the savages of Africa by the anti-God society, with the object of destroying morals and religion”
