Nominated as one of the top 5 New Year’s Eve attractions in the world by Lonely Planet last year, Three NYE Dublin guarantees this year’s festival will be the biggest and most spectacular NYE event in Ireland. MKS (Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan – the founding members of Sugababes), hot new act The Strypes and YouTube darlings Seo Linn will join seminal ska band Madness and Ryan Sheridan on stage at the Countdown Concert, in the heart of Dublin city centre on 31st December.
Last year’s Countdown Concert on College Green saw crowds of over 10,000 on the streets of Dublin, with over 1.3 million people tuning in to the live RTE TV broadcast. This year’s festival atmosphere will be amplified by the eclectic musical line up and stunning projections on Trinity College to see out the final few hours of 2013.

Sure to satisfy passionate fans and a new generation alike, Madness, who have been entertaining the public since 1979, will bring the curtain down at this year’s festivities. With over 20 classic Top 10 hits including Baggy Trousers, Our House, and House of Fun, Madness have recently released their 10th studio album ‘Oui Oui, Si Si, Ja Ja, Da Da’ and continue to perform to sell out audiences across Europe, they remain a live force to be reckoned with!
Hot on the heels of the release of their single ‘Flatline’ MKS, otherwise known as Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan, will bring their brand new, exuberant live show to Three NYE Dublin’s stage. Having sold over 10 million albums, the founding three members of Sugababes are back. This will be an electric performance boasting powerful and distinctive harmonies as MKS will thrillingly combine the band's future and greatest hits.
Ryan Sheridan is ready to bring his astonishing live show back to Ireland. His debut platinum selling Irish album ‘The Day You Live Forever’ got a 2013 German release by Universal Music Germany, jumping straight to the number 1 spot. Ryan Sheridan has played to over 100’000 people in Germany including eleven sold-out headline tour dates this year and is ready to finish off an amazing 2013 on home soil.
Cavan born 4-piece band The Strypes formed in 2011 and have spent the past 18 months launching their explosive Rhythm & Blues assault on the clubs and festivals of Ireland, UK and Europe. The young chaps whose ages range from 16 to 18 years have a long list of successes in their short time on the scene, with top 10 charting albums in Ireland and the UK, worldwide acclaim and famous fans such as Paul Weller, a sold out tour of Japan, a UK Top 10 album and are currently on a European tour supporting The Arctic Monkeys and will be home just in time to wow Three NYE Dublin concert goers.
Irish trad/pop/dance sensations Seo Linn are breaking all the genre rules and clocking up some serious fans in the process. Their incredible Irish version of TG Lurgan V Avicii – ‘Wake Me Up’ was posted up on YouTube and gained over 2 million hits in a couple of weeks. Their amazing Late Late Show performance has cemented the fact that Seo Linn are truly ones to watch.
