Jerry Fish will headline the Rock ‘n’ Roll Dublin Half Marathon Finish Festival Concert and take centre stage on Sunday Aug 11th.
Jerry Fish is one of Ireland’s most enigmatic and entertaining performers to the point where Ireland’s biggest music and arts festival, Electric Picnic, have afforded him his very own stage for the past six years. An indie legend and ringmaster of exceptional renown, Jerry Fish has evolved into a showman extraordinaire, capturing the hearts and minds of audiences all over with his now legendary live shows, a unique live theatrical experience that dissolves all boundaries between performer and audience.
Jerry Fish blasted onto the Music Scene in the 1990’s touring the globe as front-man of alternative rock outfit, An Emotional Fish, the band who gave us the indie rock anthem “Celebrate”
Mr. Fish’s genre bending and idiosyncratic style of entertainment has made him a household name within the Irish Music industry. With two Platinum selling solo albums, an MTV award and IRMA Music Award, and a solid reputation as a supreme and spectacular showman.

If the Dublin City Rounders were a dog, it would be a pink bulldog with a cowboy hat, a studded leather collar and sporting a sleeveless denim jacket. If The Dublin City Rounders were a car it would be a sky blue Cadillac Eldorado with mag wheels, massive fins and fluffy dice.
Two brothers, one mind and a single beating heart made of rock n roll gold. Since forming in 2013, the Rounders have performed over 400 live shows across Ireland and the UK. Whether playing a Stephen Foster song from the 1980’s or a brand new self penned classic you can’t take your eyes, or ears off these lads! Love ’em, hate ’em, or both they will not be ignored.

Brain Donation are a 3-piece powerhouse of hard hitting, no nonsense Alternative Rock. Their close harmonies, grungy guitar, sucker-punching bass lines and heavy dance beats produce an enormous sound that could drive even the most miserable of men to dance. Only in their infancy, the band has completed their debut self-titled EP, engineered and produced by the band themselves to capture the very essence of their sound and deliver a collection of songs nurtured from the Brain to the Web.
