A stage of curiosities at Body&Soul, Wonderlust is dedicated to the mutual exchange of wonder and discovery. The 2016 line up includes live music, performance, conversations, talks and workshops with a host of participants from Ireland & the UK.
Experiences, stories, exchanges and performances that feature the people, ideas and current happenings that are animating culture and society right now. Expect participation from people and collectives that are upgrading the system and changing the way change happens. We are delighted to host Legendary Drum ‘n’ Bass DJ & Street-Art Pioneer, Goldie MBE in a special conversation with Una Mullally How Creativity Saved my Life. We have also commissioned DJ MEK to mix a rebellion inspired set, which adds to the revolutionary themes that runs throughout the Wonderlust weekend. Other Highlights include: Revolution 101 – a toolkit for change with Senator Lynn Ruane, Mairead Healy & Grace Dyas (THEATREClub) (This conversation will be hosted by Kathy Sheridan and recorded for The Irish Times Women’s Podcast), Extraordinary Everyday Feminism with Margaretta D’Arcy, Lian Bell and Róise Goan, Cumann Rhyme with Me with Vickey Curtis, Una Mullally & guests, Power As Medicine with Ruairí McKiernan, Ruth Meehan, Emmet Kirwan, & Noeline Kavanagh, Slow Series with Aoife McElwain, Lisa O’Neill and Mari Kennedy and Thrive School with Clare Mulvany and Emmet Condon. Saturday and Sunday will also start with live immersive experiences brought to you by House of Yoga and The Yoga Salon.
By Night: Showcases the rich range of soul, folk, rock and electronic sounds that encompass “Irish music” in 2016, Wonderlust is as much about the discovery of the new as it is about catching artists you already know and love.

Other highlights including David Lyttle Jazz Trio, Altered Hours, Silences, The Great Balloon Race, Buffalo Woman, Anna B Savage, Evertides and Mongoose, along with DJ sets from Donal Dineen, Sally Cinnamon, Glammo and Cork’s Sunday Times crew.
