The Dublin Event Guide No 500 is live! It is updated on the website and on the web app and will soon be sent to you by e-mail.
To celebrate the 500th edition, we are trying to raise funds for the Dublin Event Guide, give something back to two charities AND we have a gift for every person that helps with a donation.
Support the Dublin Event Guide so that we will make it to Edition No 1000!...

Last night was the pre-view and I took the picture at that show. Tonight is the main event and it is impressive...and free. No tickets required, but you need to find a gap in the clouds, which is not so easy.
