The second concert in the 2015 Filberg Park Concert Series will welcome the high energy global rhythms of one of Canada’s hottest festival acts, and is being touted as the “biggest dance party the Filberg Heritage Park has ever seen.”
Delhi 2 Dublin (D2D) was a happy accident born out of Vancouver’s Celtic Fest in 2006. Their sound started as an electronic fusion between bhangra beats and Celtic fiddle and has since grown into anything from dub reggae to breakbeats to just straight-up happy dance music, and they’re playing the Concert Series July 23.
Pick up your tickets at Blue Heron Books in Comox, Long and McQuade in Courtenay or online at filberg.com for this event, which organizers say will be “Part Bollywood wedding, part Celtic kitchen party, and all electronic dance fest.”
Founded by Tarun Nayar (Beats Without Borders), Sanjay Seran (from live bhangra act Signia), and Ravi Binning (a bhangra dancer and dhol player), it was obvious D2D had something people wanted. Word spread about their astonishingly energetic live shows and tours grew to include festival performances in Europe, Asia and Australia. The band has kept up with the pace, producing a new album bi-annually since their inception.
The Filberg Summer Concert Series is a fundraiser for the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park, a volunteer driven organization that manages an integral cultural and heritage landmark for our community.
Gates open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7.
Come prepared to dance!
