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!
