RTÉ lyric fm presents a musical sanctuary at this year's Bloom Garden Festival over the June bank holiday weekend.
RTÉ lyric fm is delighted to announce that it will be part of the very exciting RTÉ schedule of events at Bloom in the Phoenix Park this June Bank Holiday Weekend.
Helping to mark the 10th anniversary, RTÉ lyric fm will have lots of broadcasts and music live from a specially constructed mobile radio and TV studio and live performance area on site.
RTÉ’s live coverage from Bloom begins with RTÉ Radio 1’s Morning Ireland reporting live from Phoenix Park on Thursday morning. This will be followed by the first of RTÉ lyric fm’s live broadcasts from Bloom throughout the bank holiday weekend with Marty in the Morning helping to get things off to a positive start.
Live music will come from the RTÉ lyric fm Quartet from the RTÉ set twice throughout the five days, starting with live performances at 12.15pm and 4.15pm on Thursday. RTÉ lyric fm’s Liz Nolan’s Lyric Notes with Evelyn Grant will broadcast live at 10am on Friday, while The Hamilton Scores with George Hamilton will broadcast at 10am on Saturday and Sunday.
