NYF 2020/21

Fáilte Ireland in conjunction with RTÉ are delighted to deliver a family fun programme encouraging people to ring in 2021 from the safety of their homes.

Starting at 22.45 on New Year’s Eve, the programme from Irish national broadcaster RTÉ will show a mix of pre-recorded and live content reaching out to those who could not make it home to Ireland this Christmas season.

Filmed at Dublin’s famous Gaiety Theatre, the programme will kick off with a rousing extract from the internationally successful River Dance.

Top Irish musicians including Sharon Shannon, Mundy, Jerry Fish and Mary Coughlan will perform and there will be an exciting collaboration between the RTÉ orchestra and Tolü Makay. One of Ireland’s emerging stars, Lyra, will pre-record a performance in Dublin Castle and this will be included in the broadcast.

If you wish to tune in on the 31st December from Ireland or abroad, you can do so through the RTÉ Player which will be available for everyone to watch no matter where in the world you are. See www.rte.ie/player/

Happy New Year from the NYF Dublin Festival Team. Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2021!
