Dublin Fringe Festival 2018 🗓

In the period between September 8th and September 23rd, the annual Fringe Festival will be arranged in Dublin. Are you a fan of culture, art, and discovering talent, the Fringe Festival might be something for you.

Every year there are Fringe Festivals arranged all across the world. In Dublin, the festival brings more than 30,000 people to the city, and every year they see performances and groups they have never seen before. After all, that is often what a fringe festival is about.

Few people go to the theatres, and tickets for such well-known theaters can be very expensive. At the fringe festival, smaller theater groups and artists get the chance to bring their work and acts out to a greater audience. This is a fantastic opportunity, not only for the artists but also for the audience to see and demystify the world of actors and theaters.

A Fringe festival definition

“Fringe festivals are all about providing an accessible avenue for independent theatre artists to produce and perform their work in front of an audience. The Fringe is really the essence of theatre; virtually anybody can submit a show to the Fringe and the festivals place no limits on content so shows can be bold, raw and uncensored.” (source: Huffington Post)

Can I watch ZDF/ARD online in Ireland?

Is it possible to watch ZDF/ARD online in Ireland? I live here, but would love to watch German TV, and especially the upcoming FIFA World Cup on ZDF/ARD. Can that be done from abroad?

That is a brilliant question, and the answer to your question is yes. It can be done, but you need to trick around a bit. The upcoming FIFA World Cup will be broadcasted in Ireland as well, so you can watch the matches on Irish TV, but if you want to watch them on German TV (which is understandable as you cheer for Germany), you will need to give the ZDF/ARD website the impression that you are in Germany.

To do so, you will need to make the ZDF/ARD website believe that you are in Germany. The best way to do so is by using a VPN service. Such a service will let you connect to a server in Germany, which will result in you getting a German IP address, which again will make you able to watch German TV online in Ireland.

For this purpose, I recommend using the VPN services of IPVanish. That is an American VPN service with servers all across the world, also in Germany. Sign up, connect to a server in Germany, and you are good to go.

If you later move back to Germany and miss Irish TV, you can also use IPVanish to get an Irish IP address, in order to stream RTE and other Irish TV channels from abroad.
