Club Selects: District 8’s Festive Gig Guide
Patrick Topping – December 21 & 22
Selling out two shows is a massive achievement, especially in Dublin’s growing club community. 2016 was an enormous year for Patrick Topping, coming in just shy of the top ten in Resident Advisor’s top 100 DJs poll, continuing his residency at DC10 Ibiza and releasing on Hot Creations. Not too shabby!
Jeff Mills – December 23
The 909 master makes his anticipated return to Dublin. Jeff Mills comes to District 8 for the first time. His shows this year at Life Festival and the Bord Gais Theater left people in awe.
Matador/Darren Emerson/ANNA – December 26 – €17/22
Matador returns to his hometown for Christmas. St. Stephen’s Day is a huge event on the calendar and who better to headline than a homegrown talent. Fresh off launching his new album and label, there is nothing stopping him. He is joined on the night by Darren Emerson and ANNA.
Ben Klock – December 27
A man who is very fond of Dublin and the old Twisted Pepper. Klockworks boss and Berghain resident Ben Klock makes his District 8 return after a year absence.
Kerri Chandler & Voyeur – December 28 – €17/28
Subject have constantly delivered for almost ten years now and they certainly done the business on this one. Kaoz Theory label boss and the godfather of deep house Kerri Chandler is back with added extra’s, London duo Voyeur.
