The 2010 Absolut Fringe Festival was launched last night at the brilliantly retro Ringside Club. Roise and her team threw an amazing party, the room was packed. Various Fringe acts hustled the crowd with flyers for their shows. There's an amazing line-up this year with Selena Cartmell's 'Medea', Taylor Mac, Macnas and one of my favourite bands from Reykjavik, the unusually named FM Belfast.
I was really thrilled that 'Liffeytown' got a double page spread in the beautifully designed programme and got listed as one of the top festival highlights. I've just been on the fringe website and the above Liffeytown image features on the opening page.
'Liffeytown' got a mention in today's 'Irish Times' and also featured on their arts blog 'Pursued by a Bear'.
