Windmill Lane Recording Studios Visitors Experience
Dublin-based and world-famous Windmill Lane Recording Studios, where everyone from The Rolling Stones to U2 has created music, opens to the public with a new Visitor Experience.
From 1978, Windmill Lane Recording Studios, has been host and home to many of the best-known names in the music industry. The list of artists is remarkable, which includes Kate Bush, Elvis Costello, The Cranberries, Depeche Mode, Glen Hansard, Hozier, Lady Gaga, Norah Jones, Metallica, New Order, Damien Rice, Sinead O’Connor, Snow Patrol, Spice Girls, Rod Stewart, The Rolling Stones, Ed Sheeran, and U2.
Usually, its heavy doors remain closed to the public, but now Windmill Lane Recording Studios has opened up to their unique Visitor Experience.
The Visitor Experience is an unprecedented opportunity to step beyond the studios’ justifiably celebrated Art Deco façade. Visitors will receive an exclusive, immersive and highly memorable experience from only €13.50.
A balance of technology, audio-visual media and intuitive storytelling delivers a personal and friendly overview of what it’s like to create and record some of the world’s most celebrated music.
"While the studios are iconic and are amazing to visit, we also want to create fun and diverse experiences for visitors," explains Windmill Lane Recording Studios CEO, Naomi Moore. "Visitors can learn about the 40-year history of the studios, the evolution of recording, tricks of the trade, mixing, experience a band recording, as well as participating in a celebratory grand finale. There will be a few surprises along the way to inform, inspire and tickle the senses, but I’m not giving too much away just yet."
While the Visitor Experience, located on Ringsend Road, provides a unique one-hour guide through the studios, the privacy of clients recording at Windmill Lane remains crucial. When there are clients using the studios there will be no tours, therefore it is essential to book tours in advance online - random visits cannot be offered.
