O’Connell Street Stage Set to Rock During Winterval

Winterval’s Main Stage on O’Connell Street is the place to be for live music. The street will be fully pedestrianised for the four weeks (November 18 to December 23) of the Christmas festival, so we can enjoy all the music sessions laid on. Here’s what we can look forward to in the first two weeks.
