Dublin’s first electronic club night for queer women and friends, HONEYPOT, will be hosting its much-anticipated Pride party on Saturday, June 24. Taking over Wigwam for the landmark event, get ready to swarm the dancefloor from 9pm until 3am.
The one-year anniversary event, officially called HONEYPOT 007: Lovers & Friends, will be the first of its kind within Ireland’s queer club culture. With an extensive lineup of 10 of the city’s most promising established and emerging DJs, expect two dancefloors soundtracked with infectious beats that span all genres and styles.
As part of its ethos, HONEYPOT hosts female, trans, and non-binary artists and DJs. Much to the excitement of many partygoers, organisers have called in an extra special headliner for the Pride party, London-based duo and Big Dyke Energy residents FAFF. The DJ tag-team will land in Dublin, having previously taken over major events, including Field Maneuvers, FOLD and Waterworks Festival.
In addition to fabulous DJ sets, HONEYPOT’s Pride party will also include motion art and videography from local queer female creatives. It is anticipated to be “a multidisciplinary event set to fully solidify their space in Dublin’s creative and music scenes.” The art portion of the party will also feature a photography project created with long-time collaborator Niamh Barry.
Speaking about the upcoming Lovers & Friends night, HONEYPOT co-founders Kerry Mahony and Emma Murphy said: “There is no better way to mark the one-year anniversary of HONEYPOT than with this Pride party. We are so excited to create an affordable and inclusive space for our community to celebrate in true HONEYPOT style: with incredible music, collaborations with some of Dublin’s most talented creatives, and an unforgettable energy on the dance floor.”

Additionally, to demonstrate their commitment to contributing to the queer movement in real, actionable ways, organisers have announced that a portion of all the ticket proceeds from HONEYPOT 007 will go to Small Trans Library Dublin – a community lending library, mutual aid organisation, and arts and events platform that supports a safe and thriving environment for trans people in Ireland and abroad.
The inclusive event is for everyone who is “sound, supportive and ready to party,” and the main floor of this venue is wheelchair accessible. Everyone is encouraged to: “dress to impress and to sweat” at HONEYPOT’s first Pride bash, which promises to be truly unforgettable.
