This Ain't No Disco Live

We are pleased to announce This Ain’t No Disco will be returning for Season II, beginning New Years Day 2020, but first we need your help. Next month, on the 26th of September we'll be hosting a fundraiser in D-Light Studios, Dublin. This Ain't No Disco Live, will be hosted by Donal Dineen, and feature intimate performances and conversation with Anna Mieke, Junior Brother, John Francis Flynn, & Emmet Kirwan.

After a recent funding rejection, we made a renewed push to look to our viewers for support via the crowdfunding platform Patreon. The reactions were tremendous and the feelings of love out there for our efforts, palpable. Not only has it given us great hope but we genuinely feel that cutting out the middle person, and sustaining our efforts solely through the good will and generosity of our audiences is an entirely natural and beautiful circumstance, made possible by the freedom of the Internet, and the fact that more of us in this day and age, can choose what we want to see and hear, without letting ourselves be spoon-fed by corporate broadcasting.

With your help, similar to our first season, we hope to create four new episodes and release them in Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn. A two year hiatus has been just long enough for many new acts to have emerged from Irish soil with new, unique and exhilarating sounds, across all genres. We hope to cast a lens on as many as possible, in locations East, West, North and South this island. The backbone of each episode will feature Donal bringing together inimitable creative forces to discuss and collaborate in cultivating a sound that's completely new and entirely true, to our present day, to our people and to our culture.

So please come to D-Light Studios and let us put on a party to celebrate. There'll also be a silent auction of TAND props and memorabilia, and who knows what other special guests might turn up for the session. The full roster of acts will be announced next week.

If you would like to become a patron of This Ain't No Disco, go to in order to gain access to exclusive TAND material.

A very big thank you to D-Light Studios, official supporters of This Ain’t No Disco Live!
