About the event

Tickets are on sale from ticketmaster now!

Robo Riots brings famous robots from BBC’s hit TV show Robot Wars, to battle it out live in Dublin.

They clash, spin, flip. Sparks fly. See your favourite robots take to the arena in our action packed family show.
The biggest, baddest, strongest and fastest next-generation 110kg robots from BBC’s Robot Wars and newcomers from all over Ireland and UK competing in three-minute bouts in which the goal is to destroy or disable the opponent to reign supreme in Robot Combat Sports.

Robot Wars Champions will be taking to the arena including; Thor, Diotoir, Beast fighting against veterans such as Flick, Ripper and KingB and novice robots such as Iron Heart and Teresa Mayhem. Bounty fights, robot rumbles and grudge rematches will all be on display during the 2019 event. This is the first full length heavyweight combat robot tournament of its scale in Ireland! Every live event session promises metal-munching, head-to-head, monster matchups and jaw-dropping exhibition matches that fans have always dreamt of.

Robot battling is a true sport of the future. It has all the right elements: mad science, gladiatorial combat, plucky garage inventors, and hi-tech machinery. Brutally effective, utterly vicious machines have now evolved from one based on an engineering challenge, to that of hi-tech operational challenge with space age materials.

As well as the heavyweight action, there will be a chance to see the smaller featherweights, with up to 10 robots in one fight!

But it’s not just combat robots! There will also be celebrity robots like R2-D2, a Dalek, a minecraft creeper and AL-1X – our very own z-list celebrity robot. We also have boxing robots. Seven foot rockem sockem boxing robots will be trading haymakers in a no holds barred one-on-one slugfest to literally knock each other’s block off.

Want to build your own robot? There is plenty of opportunity to talk to the roboteers and also get autographs around the pits.

Robo Riots is organised by the Robot Wars Irish team who created the flaming furball Diotoir.
