A little stage of curiosities at Body & Soul, Wonderlust is dedicated to the mutual exchange of wonder and discovery. Wonderlust first staged at Body&Soul in June 2012, and was quickly voted “Hit of the Festival” {The Irish Times}.We look forward to journeying with you together in 2018.

The Wonderlust spirit is grounded in connection, intimacy & belonging. We believe inspiration can be infectious and get excited about looking at the world through from a kaleidoscopic lens. This year we are celebrating the art of alchemy and transformation. We are delighted to host a eclectic array of people, performers and ideas that inspire new ways of being in the world. Wonderlust is a lightening rod for provocative conversation, experimentation, little moments of enlightenment and good old-fashioned entertainment.

By Day: Experiences, stories, conversations, exchanges and performances that feature the humans and happenings that are animating Irish culture and society right now. Expect participation from people and collectives that are upgrading the system and changing the way change happens.

By Night: Showcases the rich range of pop, soul, folk and electronic sounds that encompass “Irish music” in 2018, Wonderlust is as much about the discovery of the new as it is about catching artists you already know and love.
