just announced: A much anticipated return for Mother After Dark!🪩

Dublin’s old-school LGBTQ+ club night brings its late-night queer dance party to Stradbally!

Mother After Dark Line-Up

Join us on the forest floor for Mother After Dark as we bring together the best DJs, dance-party drag, and queer performers Friday, Saturday and Sunday night at Electric Picnic 2023. We’re packing our mirror ball and hosting a late-night queer dance party in the woods of Stradbally!

Every evening after dark, we’ll curate unforgettable late-night revelry courtesy of the Mother DJs, exciting guests and friends for a fantastic weekend of unbridled queer joy in the woods. All weekend from 11pm – 4am, Mother DJs Rocky T Delgado, Ruth Kavanagh and Ghostboy will be joined by a selection of our favourite guests including Kelly-Anne Byrne and Billy Bunzari.

There is a gorgeous and talented cast of queer performers, dancers and drag queens assembled for this late-night party. We are delighted to welcome drag decadence by Pixie Woo, Anziety, Shaqira Knightly, Annie Queeries, Faux Joli, Richard Joke and Avatar Guille.

Returning again this year to join our DJS and queens will be “The Mother Dancers”, a group of professional queer dance artists based in Dublin. Working with the DJs and Drag Queens these talented individuals bring their passion for movement to any party.

And, last but not least, our sexy go-go pals from OINK (Out in Kink). OinK is a Dublin based kink and fetish social club, welcoming all people and all kinks! #OutinKink.

We’re creating an unashamedly queer space at Ireland’s largest music and arts festival. This ain’t no picnic. It’s a queer dance party!
