A brand new music festival is coming our way this November.

POD and Hidden Agenda have announced details of a new two-day music festival due to take place in Dublin’s RDS this November.

Metropolis will feature music, installations and panel discussions, with promoters promising to turn the RDS into an “audiovisual playground”.

So, who’s playing? Take a deep breath…
