In 2016 F. Festival debuted as Ireland's first multi-faceted female fronted festival.
Over one thousand bodies explored Art, Comedy, Film, Music, Spoken Word & Talks across the city.
F. 2017 will see more fresh talent take the stage. The day will take you through Generator, Temple Bar Gallery, Wig-Wam, The Mercantile, Grand Social, Gypsy Rose, The Back Loft, Sin E, & The Bowery exploring a variety of artistic & creative mediums.
Leading into the night we've got some hefty riffs and dirty disco beats to keep you entertained, so make sure to pack your dancing shoes - we're gonna boogie!
In aid of women's rights, each venue will have an organisation attached to it. Repeal, White Ribbon, Dublin Rape Crisis Centre, Help Musicians are a few who will be providing information on their cause and ways in which you can help.

JOIN OUR MISSION:
F. is here to create a platform for emerging artists. F. is also here to provide a space for like-minded individuals to come together and help the pursuit of a true state of equality. To achieve this, it is vital to remain a ticketless event. We want to share this space with everyone, we are seeking equality after all. Equality means no one get's left behind.
This is where you come in.
By funding our event you will help pay for the hands & brains that make this happen, from those behind the laptops to stage curtains.
We want our F.amily to grow, wear your festival wristband or t-shirt and be proud with those around you that you are making a differnce by standing together for equality.
Blood, sweat, tears, kindness & massive support made F.Festival happen on nothing last year. It was a testament to the people living in Dublin to see what could be achieved. This year we are going bigger by adding more venues and international acts, to expand our reach and become accessible to more people.
Together we can make a difference.
'On behalf of Team F. and from the bottom of my own heart, I thank you for your support. We cannot do this without you. Let's make a difference, let's bring a true state of equality to the arts & beyond.'
- D. (F. Director)
