A year after making a dramatic and worthwhile introduction to the Limerick festival scene, Make a Move is back this week.

A year after making a dramatic and worthwhile introduction to the Limerick festival scene, Make a Move is back this week.

The hip-hop and street festival, which grew out of the coming together of community groups from St Munchin’s, Moyross, King’s Island, St Mary’s and Southill last year, has an even bigger and better line-up this July.

From Thursday through Sunday city venues will reverberate to the sound of hip-hop, street art workshops and showcases, live music from the likes of Colm Kenefick, the local ROAK crew, Captain Moonlight, DJ Aoife Ni Canna, Lady Grew and more will perform over the four days of the festival.

At its beating heart - and very current given the local debate on graffiti - is the inspiring Paint Park Parade taking place on Saturday in the People’s Park; a very real example of responsible visual art involving young people.
