Vogue Williams and Danny O’Brien added to Dublin Racing Festival bill
Howth resident, Vogue Williams, needs little introduction to Irish audiences
since launching her career on reality TV show Fade Street in 2010. She
has since gone on to enjoy a hugely successful career in media, whether it is
presenting her own TV shows or working as a DJ on radio, festivals and clubs.
Vogue will be on decks for two sets on the first day of the weekend at
Leopardstown, Saturday, February 3.
Meanwhile, Dublin comedian Danny O’Brien will be Dublin Racing Festival’s MC
for a great weekend that will combine Grade 1 horse racing with an entertaining
bill set to celebrate Dublin’s famous wit, comedy, cuisine and culture in a
two-day festival programme.
Following in the footsteps of Simon Pegg, Dylan Moran and Dara Ó Briain – Danny
was handpicked this year to perform as part of the iconic ‘Best of The
Edinburgh Fest’ Show. During a busy year he also toured Australia, playing the
Perth World Fringe, Adelaide Fringe Festival and The Melbourne International
Comedy Festival. Danny recently finished a full run with his fourth solo show
at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Danny will compere a great comedy line-up for
Dublin Racing Festival, that includes Fred Cooke, Eric Lalor, Joanne McNally
and Gearoid Farrelly.
They join Dublin folk troubadour Damien Dempsey who headlines Saturday night
and trad legends Stockton’s Wing, topping the bill on Sunday. Dublin Racing
Festival promises two exhilarating days of the finest jumps racing, with the
best equine talent from Ireland and the UK competing for two premium titles -
the Unibet Irish Gold Cup and the BHP Insurance Irish Champion Hurdle. In total
there will be seven mouth-watering Grade 1 races totaling €1.5 million in prize
