Galway International Arts Festival & Róisín Dubh present

The Academic

Music | Ireland

Date & Time

Saturday 20 July



Indie rock sensation The Academic headline the Heineken Big Top at Galway International Arts Festival in 2019 following an unforgettable year that has seen them play a series of Irish sell-out shows and complete a massive tour of the US, Europe and the UK after their debut album went to number one in the Irish charts.

This is sure to be an incredible gig from the Westmeath school friends, who wowed audiences at GIAF 2018, when they played support to The Stunning at their unforgettable 2018 GIAF gig.

Galway audiences can expect to hear such massive hits as ‘Different’, ‘Mixtape 2003’, ‘Bear Claws’, ‘Permanent Vacation’, ‘Why Can't We Be Friends?’ and 2018’s ‘Fake ID’, which have garnered the band a massive following, critical acclaim and appearances at some of Europe’s most high profile festivals as well as opening slots for acts like Twenty One Pilots, The Strokes, and Catfish And The Bottlemen.

Don’t miss one of the most exciting live acts on the music scene right now!

Tickets: €35 pp
