Phantom Halloween Ball at The Academy
Venue: The Academy, 57 Middle Abbey Street, Dublin 1 Website: www.phantom.ie Price: €10 Date: October 31st Time: from 8:00 pm
Phantom 105.2 is a Dublin-based alternative rock and indie radio station which for many years operated as a pirate station. They first aired legally on 31st October 2006: hence the Halloween-themed name. Phantom has long championed local alternative rock artists as well as dance and hip-hop from local and international acts. The annual Phantom Halloween Ball marks the fifth birthday of Dublin’s indie rock station and the culmination of Phantom’s Rocktober celebrations. This year, the ball is being held at The Academy and will feature The Riptide Movement, Torann Drums and the wonderful Dublin Gospel Choir. Irish DJ Shit Robot will crown the night.
Dust down your masks and wigs, crack open the fake blood or get creative with a black bin-liner—this is a major costume event and the prize for the best costume is extremely covetable: a trip for two, full expenses paid, to see Elbow in Barcelona. Be daring to be in with a chance!
