YOU MAY STILL be mourning the end of Electric Picnic and kicking yourself that you didn’t befriend FKA Twigs as you vowed you would.

A few months ago, we told you about Dublin’s newest music festival, Metropolis.

The two-day extravaganza takes place in Dublin’s RDS this November with acts like Chic, Mark Ronson, Giorgio Moroder and The Roots taking to the stage over the weekend.

Organisers promise to transform the RDS into an “audiovisual playground” with a wealth of panel discussions, installations and performances also taking place over the weekend.


Today, the day-by-day line-up (along with a host of new acts) was announced.

And it’s pretty tasty.
