Soul Noir 2021 was held in Dublin Castle in Bedford Tower, built in 1761, from October 31st - November 1st.

To echo these strange times, our theme for  2021 was  DARK WORLD and was reflective on the pandemic (plague) states of being we find ourselves globally submerged in a symbolic, political and environmental way. DARK WORLD was an introspective oracle on how we live and survive. 

Documentation by photographer Chad Alexander and Soul Noir. Thank you to everyone who came to the festival and to the artists themselves.
