Chris McConville the event organiser and promoter said

We have been discussing the idea of Ikon in the Dam for quite some time now and after lengthy discussions with the ferry operator we got the green light. The event itself takes more organising than our normal events, however after months of planning we are ready for the launch. The line up has been released and very well received and we are all looking forward to the event.

Tickets for the event trip go on sale on Wednesday September 16th at 9am. The ticket prices are from 139pp based on 4 sharing. Full details can be found on the event page here:
