Throughout the summer IMMA Outdoors presents a free music and performance programme every Thursday evening and Sunday afternoon in the beautiful surroundings of the IMMA Courtyard. Bring your friends and family along and enjoy a wide range of atmospheric and exciting music events, all free of charge!
The programme includes DJ sets, indie folk bands, traditional Irish tunes, afrobeat’s and more. The Music in the Courtyard programme seeks to present up and coming artists as well as host well-known names. We have collaborated with BIMM, Best in Fest and Dean Art Studios to create a diverse and impressive line-up.
During the month of June we look forward to performances with acts such as CIRCA, Still Blue, The Ritz Brothers, DJ Egg and Toshín. Check out the full programme details below.
The Camerino Bakery café van will open late for IMMA Nights on Thursday evenings until 8.30pm, serving delicious sweet treats, sandwiches, as well as wine, prosecco and cocktails!
Please note that events will proceed in rain or shine and that the ground surface may be uneven in places, so bring appropriate footwear.
Below is an outline of the upcoming Music in the Courtyard performances.
CIRCA is a six-piece ensemble group consisting of guitar, piano, bass, drums, percussion, lead and back vocals. At its core, Circa is Sean Fox Gordon (Vocals & Guitar), Sam Urwin (Bass), Matthew Nealon (Lead Guitar), and Fionn Maguire O’Loughlin (Drums).
Consistently writing together for two and a half years, CIRCA have been performing together since summer 2022 playing minor support slots, and selling out a trilogy of headline shows at Dublin’s best indie venues.
Still Blue are an Indie Pop band based in Dublin. The band is led by vocalist/songwriter Nicole Lyons with Ruairi Forde on lead guitar, drums by Greg Kearns.
The band have played in many music venues across Ireland including a sold out headline show in The Workman’s Club Cellar, Supporting the Academic in the Olympia Theatre and Supporting Milk in the Academy.

The Ritz Brothers perform musical antics, from room to room, table to table, and courtyard to courtyard.
Join them for a magical musical evening of surprises from the juke box of your heart, where every song will stir a memory, and a new moment of emotion and laughter.
Multifaceted artist and music selector, DJ Egg is known for their Jungle, Footwork and Club music driven DJ sets, from the beginnings in Limerick City throwing queer-centred events for their community, to now playing across Ireland and the UK with their personal take on how they love to dance.
Their days digging for music is intertwined with their artistic practice, and both equally are pegged for their inimitable, bubbly and energetic styles.
Toshín, lead by the powerful voice of Toisin Bankole, is vibrant 6-piece band who take their inspiration from a variety of music spanning from early Motown to modern soul/RnB artists such as Tank and the Bangas and Anderson Paak.
Their exhilarating live shows go from chilled out, from the heartfelt soul of Aretha Franklin to all-out James Brown-esque funky goodness.
