Throwback time…

The Irish Village is gearing up to host a music mania of sorts with their upcoming concert night, LOADED, featuring some of the best rock and hip-hop bands from the 90’s. The sensational live performance is slated for November 4, 2023.

Delivering iconic hits is definitely the memo for this one because on the itinerary we have Stereo MC’s, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Toploader and Dodgy.

The groups, spanning across a range of genres like Britpop, Rock, Rap Rock and Hip Hop/ Electronic, will put up a show supercharged with energy and of course, great tunes for you to get your groove to.

Stereo MC’s shot to fame with their singles Connected and Lost in Music, while American export Fun Lovin’ Criminals have hits like Scooby Snacks and Loco.  Toploader is popular for timeless classics like Dancing in the Moonlight and Time of My Life, and you might know Dodgy for his hits, Good Enough and Staying Out for Summer.
