Metropolis Festival highlights.

Metropolis Festival returned to the grounds of the RDS for its second round earlier this month, as one of the most anticipated events of the year claimed the mantle of  Ireland’s premier winter festival.

DJ Shadow kicked things off on Thursday at The Opening Party that had seen Mount Kimble and Kormac performed for a taster of what was to come.

Grace Jones, Moderat, Jack Garratt, The Sugar Hill Gang, Shura and more performed to crowds across three stages, with Wolfgang Flür (ex-Kraftwerk), Ralfe Rolfe, and Alexis Taylor captivating audiences on the RBMA stage.

No stranger to Irish festivals, Cyril Hahn, was always a favourite for many with tracks taken from numerous EPs that were familiar to most too.

If there is one thing that Metropolis has got right, it is their eye-catching visuals. Hair raising and heart racing, there is rarely a dull moment.

There was much more to digest than all that, music blog captured shots of artists, installations, and the festival atmosphere in a video below..

Meanwhile, here is what everyone thought of the festival itself:
