The Olympia Theatre, Dublin: Saturday 13th October, 2018.
Plus very special guests, Mango X Mathman & prYmary colours
Rumble in the Jungle! After an epic and high energy show at last year’s Electric Picnic, King Kong Company returned to headline a sell out show at The Academy, Dublin as part of All Kong-Quering Tour on Saturday December 16th. King Kong Company will now play one of their biggest headline shows to date in Dublin's iconic Olympia Theatre on Saturday, 13th October 2018. Support on the night will come Mango X Mathman & prYmary colours. Final tickets are on sale now from Ticketmaster.
Having brought their brand of Irish ‘get the f*** up and dance’ music to audiences at festivals across Ireland and Europe this summer, King Kong Company will be taking their award winning live shows indoors at the end of 2017, with their biggest tour ever, including their first tour of the UK. It was a summer of memorable gigs. One gig at Vestrock put them in front of 10,000 Dutch people (they know how to dance), the set at Glastonbury won over loads of new fans, while the audience at Boomtown knew a thing or two about getting ‘something off that’. Their hometown gig at Waterford Spraoi was the largest in the festivals 25 year history, the cake was well and truly iced with a performance in the biggest tent at Electric Picnic just gone!
Mango X Mathman
Dublin’s Mango X MathMan are leading figures in the new wave of exciting Irish urban music. Their first release ‘Badman’ has become the quintessential grime anthem for Ireland and their subsequent releases have held their stature as the ones to watch on the Dublin music scene. Their steadfast approach to innovating and melding established genres such as Grime, UK garage, Rave and Hip Hop has given them a unique sound that blends rave culture and Dublin life.
They released their first EP the ‘Wheel Up EP’ in December 2017 which is now available on all streaming platforms. 'Wheel Up' is a collection of up-tempo grime and rave tracks ahead of their forthcoming album 'Casual Work'.
