DCU’s Spring Break is set to take place on campus in under two weeks time.
The week-long festival, organised by DCU’s Students’ Union, will feature four days of entertainment by top musical talent, featuring David O’Doherty, The Darkness, 2manydjs and more.
Running from Monday the 9th of March until Thursday the 12th the event represents the biggest student event organised by the SU this semester.
Monday will see comedian David O’Doherty get proceedings under way. He will be followed by Belgian alternative rock band The Darkness on Tuesday, with local Dublin rock band Delorentos as well as grunge/pop band Otherkin due to perform in the Hub on Wednesday night.
The final gig will see 2manydjs conclude what looks to be a week of fun and musical entertainment.
Speaking about the festival, Student Union president Kenneth Browne said that the variations in acts will offer something for everyone over the course of the four days.
“It’s something different every night to try to appeal to different kinds of people. David O’ Doherty is on Monday night, Tuesday we have the Darkness coming in, Wednesday is Delorenttos and they’re being supported by another band called Otherkin”, he said.
Excitement is building among students as tickets went on sale soon after semester one exam results were released.
“We’ve never done something over the period of a week in the second semester”, the SU president said.
“We’ve done fresher’s fortnight and they would all be established in their own right but we’ve never had as many things packed into one week, so it’s something completely new”.
“There’s no other university or college in the country that is doing it” Kenneth stated.
