All Day Party – Bank Holiday Sun August 5th
With 3 rooms of music over 2 floors.
Over 20 Djs and Live Acts / BBQ & Drink Promos
House. Balearic. Disco. Electro. Techno

We’ve enjoyed some fantastic parties down at The Grand Social this year and we’re delighted to announce another bumper line up for our FINAL PARTY OF SUMMER 2012 this coming Bank Holiday SUNDAY AUGUST 5TH! This time around, not only do we present rising Irish DJs & Producers, local heros and Irish legends, we also tip the hat to some international talent in the form of two live shows - EGBERT (Cocoon Recordings) & CHRISTIAN BURKHARDT (Oslo Records).

The Loft (Upstairs) features a solid techno line up that’ll feature a debut Irish live performance from Dutchman – EGBERT (Cocoon). When not playing at festivals around Europe, including Awakefest & Timewarp, he can be found in the Main Room at Amnesia, Ibiza on Monday nights for Sven Vaths monster Cocoon nights. We also welcome back Irish Techno Lord, SUNIL SHARPE (no introduction needed). Support comes from MONGO resident AL KEEGAN and a host of other local talent.

The Ballroom (Downstairs) provides a housier affair. Making his way from Mannheim, Germany to promote his brand new album is OSLO RECORDS main man – CHRISTIAN BURKHARDT. Christian released his debut album, ‘Offenbach’ to rave reviews at the end of June and this is the perfect time to witness his fresh new LIVE SHOW. Also on the bill is man of the moment, BUBBA (Hot Creations), whose recent remix on Runnin Wild ‘Pop 60’ is causing quite a stir on dancefloors around the globe! Support comes from MONGO resident AARON NOLAN, Citizen Black & many more.

The Garden will play host to Disco & Party tunes compliments of Irish legend – BILLY SCURRY. It’ll be just over a year since Billy last played for us and we literally cant wait to hear him bust out some of those rare gems hes known for. Support comes from Bodytonics FRANKIE BINGO, Round Ups SEANY BEE & Allegro resident FINTAN LALOR!

Doors for the show open from 4.30pm. We’ll provide various drink promos to keep it within budget and as usual, there’ll be a BBQ on hand in the garden to keep you in good health throughout! Admission for this whopping line up is the cheapest you’ll find in Dublin that day - €15.

We’d like to thank everyone for their continued support of MONGO, this is our final party of the Summer and we’d love for you to join us and make it a memorable one!

Big Up!

We step things up once again with another bad ass line that welcome's for the first time - PYSCATRON LIVE!

As usual, revellers will be treated to an array of musical treats spread across 3 areas of music with house, disco, techno & party music all on offer. If last months party is anything to go by, we’re in for another really big day out! Here’s how it will go down –

The upstairs Garden will host hip hop, disco & party music compliments of Bodytonics AARON DEMPSEY, former Pod resident NIC JAMES, Oldskool hero SIMON F & the super talented hands of former world DMC Champ DJ TUKI - BOOM!

We continue on our quest to create mega house vibes in the downstairs Ballroom which will feature some of the finest Dublin House music providers - Sunny Side Up resident DAVID DE VALERA, Color TVs LIAM PRENDIVILLE, T3 resident PHILIP GALVIN JUNIOR & Mongo resident AARON NOLAN plus many more... Its sure to go right off!!

The Upstairs Loft features tough hi octane bliss and peak time party techno compliments of men of the moment – PSYCATRON. Also on duty is Electric City legend, GILES ARMSTRONG, Pogo resident BARRY REDSETTA & MONGO resident AL KEEGAN plus many more.

As mentioned previously, doors open at the slightly later time of 5PM! To assist in your nourishment throughout the day we’ll provide a BBQ in the garden [apologies to anyone that went hungry the last day, we had some last minute issues resulting in no BBQ :-( Sorry!]

Admission on the day is €12 or we are also giving a reduced rate of e10 entry for those who plan to attend Forbidden Fruit / Avicii that day - simply present your wristband or ticket stub to avail!

So again, huge thanks for the continued support! Here's to another amazing day out : ) See you on the dancefloor!!!

MONGO - 1st Birthday @ Grand Social - St Patricks Day 2012

First Birthday Celebration
All Day Party - St Patrick's Day March 17th
With 4 rooms of music over 2 floors.
Over 40 Djs and Live Acts / BBQ plus drink promos
House. Techno. Disco. Mash Up and More

MONGO are delighted to be returning this St Patrick's Day – March 17th to celebrate our 1st year birthday bash! With a new year comes a new venue in the form of the Grand Social, and after the roaring success of St Stephen's Day we are sure to be in for another monster day out in this great new space! It seems like only yesterday that we kicked off our first daytime event at The Ormond Wine bar. Since then, we've gone on to host some of the most memorable events of 2011 in the POD complex. Making famous not only our beloved Luas but creating an internet sensation around Dublin in the form of crazy raver guy outside, good times! :)

We have seen a plethora of quality Irish acts over the duration, proving that our scene, as small and intimate as it may be, still remains strong and is bursting with talent! We have had the pleasure of meeting loads of new faces on the dancefloor, in the courtyard, at the festivals and of course at the after party and from all of this comes the good time party MONGO is now know known for – so HUGE thanks to you all! x

So, moving onwards and upwards with a very special line up to help us celebrate the year that was and the year ahead in a fresh new space – The Grand Social. We have put together what we think is possibly one of our finest line ups to date. Keeping things homegrown as well as drafting in some old friends from Ibiza’s Zoo Project we have included a diverse line up of some of the finest house, techno, disco and mash up DJs / Producers and Live Acts around!

With a MONGO debut appearance from one of the countries finest - Phil Kieran (Cocoon), plus an exclusive Irish debut live set from man of the moment - Matador (Minus). We have also included Belfast duo Jet Project (Get physical/ Viva) and Hot Creations records latest offering BUBBA, who has been causing quite a stir of late on Pete Tong’s essential mix. If that wasn’t enough we welcome the return of Nic & Kaleb (Zoo Project Ibiza) who stole the show at POD last year playing arguably one of the finest sets MONGO has seen since its inception. Along with all of this comes our usual brood of quality local acts from both Dublin and further afield. With Four rooms now on offer including The Ballroom, The Loft, The Bar and now The Garden area (with BBQ & Music on the day) there really is something for everyone and it’s shaping up to be one celebration you do not want to miss!

Doors for the event open from 2pm with various drink promos on the day as well as a BBQ in the garden to keep you in good health throughout! The party will run till late so expect a full day out and a quality soundtrack to make for the perfect Paddy's Day! Admission for the event will be e15. Capacity is limited so please please arrive early to avoid disappointment! Our last event sold out within 3 hours of opening so the earlier you get there the better!

So, here's to another great day and please do feel free to spread the good word to any sound folk that might be interested in coming along! x

Thanks again for a fantastic year and here's to many more great parties in 2012! As we say, it's no party without people so - BIG up ya'selves!
