Africa Day 2017 Main Stage: BARQ

8th May 2017

We’re delighted to announce that BARQ will be performing on the main stage Kwassa Kwassa at this year’s Africa Day Dublin flagship event!

BARQ are a high energy Dublin four-piece who have been making waves since the release of their debut single “Gentle Kind of Lies” in March 2016.

With their self-styled brand of “melty rock” and “agrosoul”, BARQ have received glowing reviews from the likes of RTÉ, Hot Press and Nialler9, and were included as one of The Irish Times’ ’50 People to watch in 2017’.

BARQ’s tracks have been selected for Spotify’s new music playlist in both the UK and Brazil, as well as being included on IASCA’s PLAYIRISH USA, and two of Goldenplec’s Goldenstereo playlists. They were one of only 13 Irish artists to feature in RTÉ 2fm’s 100 most played artists of 2016.

Head over to BARQ’s YouTube channel to get a taste of the energy they’ll be bringing to the main stage.
