It’s not exactly Coachella but Irish fans of Fontaines D.C. will be delighted with the announcement of two shows here later this year.

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that the band would be performing at the biggest music festival in the States and just a few weeks later, the lads will take to the stage in Cork and Belfast.

Having met at the British and Irish Modern Music Institute in Dublin, the five-piece have enjoyed a meteoric rise since the release of their debut album Dogrel in 2019. The album went on to be named Album of the Year by BBC Radio 6 Music and was nominated for a Mercury Prize.

If you’ve yet to catch Fontaines D.C. live, today’s announcement provides the perfect opportunity to do so. They will perform at Live At The Marquee in Cork on Thursday, May 28 before heading up the road to Belfast for a gig at Live At Botanic Gardens on Friday, May 29.

Fontaines D.C. consists of vocalist Grian Chatten, Conor Deegan on bass, Carlos O’Connell and Conor Curley on guitar, as well as Tom Coll on drums. The band are only set to get bigger throughout the 2020s and you can follow their progress here.

Tickets for the Fontaines D.C. Cork and Belfast shows go on sale this Friday, January 31 at 9am.
