Hit the North Block Party

Date: Sunday 5 May, 2pm to 6pm

Venue: Union Street (outside The Sunflower)

Category: Arts and culture


Watching paint dry has a bad reputation - but with over 70 artists hitting a city block with the sun shining, the roads closed and David Holmes on the decks, there aren’t many better ways to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Hit the North, organised by Seedhead Arts (supported by Hennessy), brings some of the world’s finest artists to Ireland’s biggest street art festival.

This year’s event will feature local, national and international artists with an array of styles and techniques on show as onlookers watch the artwork develop throughout the day, with refreshments available from the Sunflower Bar.

The Hit the North Block Party is the climax to a weekend programme of workshops, tours, exhibitions and live events. Admission is free.
