Runway Lights at The Button Factory

Runway Lights are an experimental, alternative rock band from Dublin. The band’s sound has been described as a delicate balance of lulling sweetness and dark nastiness with influences ranging from meticulously constructed alternative pop to the dynamic soundscapes of post-rock.

With fresh material already recorded, they will release their debut EP in early 2019.

Garageland, in association with IMRO, The Arts Council, RTE 2XM, Hot Press Magazine, Sound Training College and MusicMaker, is proud to present this specially commissioned series of The Garage Gigs at The Button Factory.

All shows will be filmed by STC crew for Garageland TV, to be broadcast in 2019.

Runway Lights has been selected by a panel of The Garageland Crew to perform.

Your advance online support really matters. Doors open at 6.45pm / online tickets are 25% cheaper than door tickets – this is to encourage sales through the artists own ticket link from which the artists are paid.

To see how the artists commissions work, and why Garageland is so popular with emerging artists, please visit

Debit / Credit cards will only be charged when the event is approved and confirmed – this happens when the artist hits their ‘Ticket Target’, which is set for 7 days prior to Gig Day.

The Ticket Target varies depending on which slot the artist has chosen to play, the amount of tickets remaining is displayed on Ticket Purchase page. If an artist does not hit their chosen Ticket Target their slot may not go ahead, in which case cards will not be charged for this artists performance.

Upon hitting Ticket Target the artist is paid a commission on all ticket monies, so you’re making a real and visible difference in directly supporting their music it this way.

Support your local artist, make music great again!
