Going for Gold. Olympics-Themed Street Party with Sing Along Social

back to events

To coincide with the opening ceremony in Paris, our annual themed street party this year is heading to the Olympic Games.

Bridge Street will be closed to traffic from 7pm and there'll be interactive Olympic challenges and games for all ages. Plus live music, great food, live graffiti installations and a massive sing-song with Sing Along Social.

Please dress up in costume if you can, Prized for best outfits and best business displays.

Fun, Family-Friendly, Accessible and Free!

The Sing Along Social specialise in singing parties designed for people who can't sing. Hosted by The Craic Mechanics, they create a safe and gas space where friends and strangers gather together to sing along to their favourite cheesy pop songs. Sort of like group karaoke but with no microphones and with nobody being put on the spot. You don't have to practice, you don't need to know the words and you don't even need to be able to sing. 

Hosted by The Craic Mechanics, we have been popping up at parties, festivals and residencies in Ireland, the UK and beyond since 2015. You can find us at our regular pop ups in The Sugar Club in Dublin, or caterwauling alongside crowds at festivals including Body & Soul, All Together Now, Another Love Story, The Electric Picnic, Latitude in UK and Lollapalooza Berlin.

Our vibe is cheesy pop music and guilty pleasures, and we are guided by the holy trinity of Whitney, Mariah and Shania in pretty much everything we do. Some of our favourite songs to sing along to include I Wanna Dance With Somebody, Dancing Queen, Don’t Stop Me Now, I Want It That Way, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight), The Chain, Uptown Girl, Proud Mary, C’est La Vie, Man! I Feel Like A Woman!, Who Do You Think You Are, I’ve Had The Time Of My Life, and Put Em Under Pressure.
