Rotten weather has forced Patti Smith's Dublin gig indoors

Patti’s performance will now take place in ‘two tented structures’ at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham.

SUMMER? WHAT SUMMER?

Organisers have been forced to rethink legendary singer Patti Smith’s outdoor gig at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham tonight because of the rotten weather.

The concert will now take place in ‘two tented structures’ at the Royal Hospital, instead of outside on the main stage as originally planned.

The organisers say:

In light of the inclement weather and gale force winds, two adjoining stages in two tented structures will be used for tonight’s show, with two artists performing in each one – none of which will clash with each other’s performance.

Those of you with Forbidden Fruit tickets are in for a treat, as the weekend passes are valid for entry into Smith’s gig.

Patti Smith will perform her classic album Horses in full at 9.15pm – here is the new running order:

  • New Secret Weapon: 6pm (Tent 2)
  • Ariel Pink: 6.40pm (Tent 1)
  • Spiritualized: 7.55pm (Tent 2)
  • Patti Smith: 9.15pm (Tent 1)
