DAVID BOWIE DUBLIN FESTIVAL 2019
1st December 2018

The annual Dublin Bowie Festival returns for its fourth edition next month from Monday January 7th until Sunday January 13th and again, fans of the legendary singer are in for a treat with the week-long event set to celebrate 50 years of Space Oddity and the greatest Starman of our time.

Kicking off the festival on Monday 7th January is a real treat for Bowiephiles; a world premiere exclusive Festival performance of the Space Oddity album from start to finish (and other songs from the Bowie Universe) by the I Heart Bowie ensemble alongside the renowned Trinity Orchestra and some very special guest singers in the hallowed National Concert Hall.

The festival is also associating with MCD as they host the Irish performance of A Bowie Celebration in The Olympia Theatre, Wednesday 9th January. Comprising 5 key members of Bowie's band over his long career - Mark Plati, Carmine Rojas, Earl Slick, Dubliner Gerry Leonard and Bowie's longest serving sidekick, pianist Mike Garson - A Bowie Celebration bring an unforgettable and critically acclaimed evening of Bowie songs with world-class vocalists and an ever rotating mix of hits and deep cuts. Gerry was our first guest of honour at DBF 16 and his continual championing of the Festival and background help is always much appreciated.

The festival will also have The Lighthouse Cinema involved again and their Bowie related programme ticks all the boxes as Space lovers can enjoy seeing Bowie's cult sci-fi classic The Man Who Fell To Earth and the movie that inspired Bowie to introduce Major Tom to the universe, Stanley Kubrick's 2001 - A Space Odyssey. We're particularly pleased that they are also screening Moon, the superb debut feature film of one Duncan Jones, Bowie's son. For family fun it's hard to beat the 80's musical fantasy Labyrinth and its noon screening on Saturday 12th kicks off a family friendly day of activities in Smithfield Square that includes talks, workshops and experiments as we engage our inner scientist while gazing up at the stars from inside a Mobile Planetarium looking at The View from Major Tom's Tin Can.

Last year's festival featured in excess of 8,000 with Bowie fans travelling from as far as Australia, the U.S. and continental Europe and the UK to attend, along with thousands of Bowie lovers from all over Ireland. We are delighted to have the support of Dublin City Council and Visit Dublin for DBF 19 and are extremely grateful of the continued backing and expertise that they bring to the Festival.

More exciting events and ticket details will also be revealed at the launch. For further details check out dublinbowiefestival.ie

GLASTONBURY 2000 RELEASED!
1st December 2018

Released yesterday is BOWIE: GLASTONBURY 2000 with FOUR different formats available: [2CD] / [2CD plus 1DVD Box Set] and [3LP Vinyl] and digital releases.


OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: DAVID BOWIE 'GLASTONBURY 2000' - THE LEGENDARY FULL PERFORMANCE RELEASED FOR THE FIRST TIME INCLUDING MANY OF DAVID'S GREATEST HITS AND NEVER BEFORE SEEN FOOTAGE

2xCD/DVD, 3xLP, 2CD, DIGITAL, HIGH RESOLUTION (48/24) DIGITAL
RELEASED 30th NOVEMBER, 2018


"Not only the greatest Glastonbury headline performance but the best headline slot at any festival ever" NME.

All formats feature Life On Mars?, Changes, Let's Dance, Under Pressure, "Heroes", Fame, China Girl, Ashes To Ashes, Ziggy Stardust, Rebel Rebel, Station To Station, Golden Years, Absolute Beginners and many more.


Glastonbury 2000 CD and DVD 2nd OCTOBER 2018 - LONDON: Parlophone Records in association with BBC Studios and Glastonbury Festivals Ltd. are proud to announce DAVID BOWIE 'GLASTONBURY 2000' on 2CD/DVD, 3LP, 2CD and standard and high resolution digital formats documenting Bowie's legendary Sunday night headline performance on 25th June at the most famous festival on earth.

The package includes the full 21 song greatest hits set and for the first time, a DVD of the entire show (only 37 minutes of which has ever been broadcast on TV) including the Glastonbury performance of "Heroes", a highlight of the record breaking 'David Bowie Is...' exhibition and the only track that has been previously released.

All formats feature David's diary, originally written for Time Out, which documents him preparing for the show in his own inimitable manner:

"As of 1990 I got through the rest of the 20th century without having to do a big hits show. Yes, yes, I know I did four or five hits on the later shows but I held out pretty well I thought... big, well known songs will litter the field at Glastonbury this year. Well, with a couple of quirks of course."

In addition to newly mastered audio and upgraded video DAVID BOWIE 'GLASTONBURY 2000' features new artwork from Jonathan Barnbrook (who worked with Bowie on the sleeves for Heathen, The Next Day and ★) and notes from the renowned author and Bowie fan Caitlin Moran who reviewed the show for The Times.

The package features photos of Bowie resplendently dressed in a 3/4 length one-of-a-kind Alexander McQueen frock coat, the pattern of which was made to echo the hat (the famous 'bipperty-bopperty hat' mentioned in the song Queen Bitch) and worn by David at his Glastonbury Fayre debut in 1971.

Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis commented "I often get asked what the best set I've seen here at Glastonbury is, and Bowie's 2000 performance is always one which I think of first. It was spellbinding; he had an absolutely enormous crowd transfixed. I think Bowie had a very deep relationship with Worthy Farm and he told some wonderful stories about his first time at the Festival in 1971, when he stayed at the farmhouse and performed at 6am as the sun was rising. And he just played the perfect headline set. It really was a very special and emotional show."

Emily's father Michael, the founder of the festival who first met David at Glastonbury in 1971 said "He's one of the three greatest of all-time: Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and David Bowie."
