Conceived in June 2010, Mother is an old school club night for disco loving gays and their friends. Packed into a cosy underground space, the Hub, Temple Bar, Dublin, Mother has played host to a plethora of the best local and international guests, including; Scissor Sisters; Ana Matronic & Jake Shears, Loreen, The Magician, Crazy P, Aeroplane, Nancy Wang (LCD Soundsystem), Little Boots, Dimitri from Paris, Nicky Siano, Rory Phillips, Alex Metric, Jacques Renault, Andy Butler, Shit Robot, Optimo, Daithí, Le Galaxie and many many more. More recently we have been honoured to support some of our biggest idols including Róisín Murphy, Peaches and Grace Jones!

Mother is delighted to be packing her gold sequins and making the journey back to Ballinlough Castle after a hiatus in 2017. This year on the Reckless in Love stage you can expect a cornucopia of transformative queer performance, music and art. Mother loves her gender-bending queer creatives so expect to have your Body&Soul fed in a gold and glittering extravaganza.
