Homelights festival for Whelan’s

Whelan’s plays host to the inaugural Homelights festival from 27th – 30th of November. The event, which is co-curated by Adrian Crowley and Foggy Notions, is a sister festival to London’s Homefires and Fife’s Homegame and, like its siblings, draws upon the themes of community and artistic kinship.

The occassion also marks Crowley’s new relationship with Scottish indie label Chemikal Underground, who will release his new album Season of the Sparks around the same time. Performances throughout the four days promise to be full of surprises, impromptu collaborations and surprise guests.
