IMMA Summer Party, Continuous Patterns, 2022
IMMA Summer Party, Continuous Patterns, 2022

IMMA’s much loved Summer Party returns on 15 and 16 July 2022, Continuous Patterns is a two-day summer celebration of music, art and atmosphere in the grounds of IMMA. Experience live music, DJs, art, delicious food, interesting drinks, and some very special surprises over two days of fun and atmosphere in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham.

Continuous Patterns presents a selection of artists who are at the very cutting edge of contemporary Irish culture, across a range of genres and moods. The programme has been carefully curated to match the rhythms of two special and distinct mid-summer evenings and presented across two stages of live music, DJs and more in the wonderful surrounds of the RHK.

On Friday 15 July Continuous Patterns presents an evening of future focused live music on our Courtyard and Terrace stages, with performances from exciting emerging RnB acts Jar Jar Jr, Negro Impacto and Efe; and a unique collaboration from the exhilarating and elegant pairing of power pop sensation Ae Mak and the renowned contemporary ensemble Glasshouse. Closing out the evening in full dancing mode we welcome a rare hometown live performance from one of the country’s most celebrated electronic producers and DJs R.Kitt.

The programme for Saturday 16 July creates a more relaxed vibe, enjoy a leisurely mid-summer’s evening in IMMA with psych-folk artist Aoife Wolf, the folk stylings emerging Cork songwriter O Deer, Ukulele collective Rugs, the riot of sound that is Stomptown Brass, and a very special performance from Ye Vagabonds in collaboration with renowned composer and multi-instrumentalist Gareth Quinn Redmond.

Two more very special guests will be announced in the coming weeks.

Each evening our terrace bar will be sound-tracked by some of our most celebrated selectors with DJ sets from Dublin stalwarts and radio personalities Claire Beck and Donal Dineen, emerging Japanese Irish selector Emmy Shigeta and the breezy sounds of the Desert Island Disco crew.

Continuous Patterns expands on the successful series of events, Emerging Patterns, presented by Homebeat as part of IMMA Outdoors in 2021. For IMMA’s Summer Party Homebeat presents a multi-disciplinary programme that animates the grounds of IMMA, filling the air with ambient soundscapes, melodic tones and stimulating conversation. Continuous Patterns underlines IMMA’s position as cultural incubator, providing space to both the artistic and wider Dublin communities, and delivers a welcome return to experiencing this palette of creation in person amongst its beautiful grounds.
