Kick off Pride with the ultimate party – Absolut X!

Absolut are celebrating over 40 years of allyship with the LGBTQ+ community by throwing a hell of a party.


On Friday June 23rd, iconic vodka brand Absolut will be throwing their first ever Pride party in association with Mother as they celebrate more than 40 years of allyship with the LGBTQ+ community.

Pride Absolut X will take place in Dublin’s Button Factory and promises attendees a safe, inclusive, and immersive experience all combined with Absolut’s signature Made to Mix cocktails and premium serves, cutting-edge creative clubbing technology, and non-stop bangers from Mother DJs.

Headlining the Pride Absolut X lineup is the beloved festival favourite, Ghostboy, who brings over a decade of DJ-ing experience at Mother events. Joining him will be the remarkable Kelly-Anne Byrne and the talented 2FM and BBC DJ, Tara Kumar.

Guests will experience and interact with pioneering custom-built digital installations ensuring the dance floor is a transcending experience with the latest in creative technology and club lighting innovation.

The party will be the perfect place to kick off your Pride celebrations as it pushes the boundaries of Irish clubbing, something Absolut continues to advocate on the back of its hugely successful Absolut X event at Urban Plant Life in Dublin 8, which played host to international DJ Denis Sulta in April.


Tickets for the Pride Absolut X party are €15 and if you fancy partying from 11pm until 3am for Pride, tickets are available to purchase here.

But the fun doesn’t end there as Pride Absolut X is only one part of Absolut’s support of this year’s Pride celebrations, as they are also once again sponsoring the Mother Pride Block Party.

“Absolut has been a steadfast ally of the LGBTQ+ community for decades,” said Paula Reynolds, Marketing Manager at Absolut.

We are proud to continue our support of the community through our partnership with Mother, which we are taking to the next level this year by creating an immersive club night experience.

“The Pride Absolut X event is part of our commitment to fostering inclusivity, celebrating diversity, and creating memorable club experiences that bring people together.”
