Artists performing there will span a diverse range of acts from across the Irish and international music scene and genres from rock and indie to jazz and trad bands.
Music-lovers can expect to see collaborative line-ups featuring renowned household names (eg Wyvern Lingo and Delorentos) alongside some of Ireland’s up-and-coming talent. From Thursdays through Saturdays Lost Lane will also play host to live DJ sets who’ll see Lost Lane into the early hours.
Monday nights will become the ‘go-to’ for industry stalwarts with free entry live music gigs and residencies, claims the Porterhouse Group, adding that it’s, “The perfect solution for musicians and industry workers looking for somewhere to party on their night off and Dubliners looking to kick-start their week with a night out”.
Substantial investment has been made to respectfully restore and preserve the venue’s Georgian structure and details alongside updating and installing state-of-the-art sound and lighting, acoustic treatment and set design.
“We’ve broken the piggy bank so that we can get the absolute best in sound and lighting,” commented Porterhouse Group partner Elliot Hughes, “We’ve stripped it back in terms of décor as we want the focus to be on the artists, allowing people to really get lost in the music without distractions of decorative bells and whistles.
“Lost Lane’s prime central location at the bottom of Grafton Street in the heart of the city is going to promise ‘must-see’ gigs, up-and-coming acts and late-night residencies every weekend.”
Open seven days a week from 7pm until late, entry for the main acts will be ticketed until 11pm with a capacity of 280 during live performances and 600 overall. From 11pm DJs will take over from the billed band and the venue will open to non-ticket holders.
Lost Lane will officially open to the public on Friday 12th April.
