Getting ready for 2015

Brochures are printed. The Launch is being prepared.
Welcome to Soundwaves 2015! Here are our events;

Click on any event in this list to see the event description (and purchase tickets should you want to do so).

Many events don’t need tickets. Whether it’s our festival launch or the street party, the art trail or the parade & fireworks, just show up and join in the fun!

For others, you can purchase tickets either directly here on the site (there is a fee for that, which goes to Eventbrite, the site which we use for our online sales) – or visit Skerries Tourism Office, 18 Thomas Hand Street (open Wed to Sun, 10.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.).

And while you wait for the events to come around, have a look at the rest of this page, and enjoy the photographs mainly taken by the members of Skerries Camera Club. They will, once again, be at the Festival and document our fun with their cameras!

PS: We know the brochure is too small here, find it in the shops, tourism office and other places in Skerries – and in your letter box (unless you have a “no junk mail” sticker)!

Lego Day on 21 June – a fun Fundraiser for Soundwaves!

This year’s Skerries Soundwaves Lego Day took place on Sunday June 21, as a fundraiser for our annual festival (September 17 to 27, 2015). You can read more about it here!


Soundwaves will be back from September 17 to 27, 2015!

We’ll give you information as we receive it from the event organisers.

hansel gretelNorth Dublin Opera this year will perform Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel, a fairy-tale opera, for children. The opera features a host of colourful characters, including fairies and witches, as well as dazzling music. The cast is made up of a talented bunch of young professional musicians, and the audience will have the chance to meet with them afterwards to find out what the life of a professional musician is really like. An excellent introduction to classical music for young children.

And while you’re waiting for more information… Here’s a taste of what happened 2014.

Thank you to all those who were part of it – organisers, performers, volunteers, sponsors and most importantly festival goers!
