Yesterday we shared our top 5 sets from Life Festival but didn’t include any local heroes. Between the international guests this festival was glued together by the locals. From sunrise disco sets to endless hours of pounding techno we take a look at our top 10 local sets from Life.
10. Bedlam DJs
4-5 am on the Toast stage Jonnie & Brian brought the crowd into the Saturday morning with endless classics. From ‘Strobe’ to ‘The Man With The Red Face’ and some questionable dance moves, the lads kept the session going.
9. Sarah Mooney
Getting a crowd to the District 8 tent during the day can be difficult but Sarah Mooney made sure those who ventured from the campsite got their money’s worth. Check out her dropping Victor Ruiz’s remix of ‘Natural Blues’.
8. Long Island Sound
Timmy & Rob helped set the tone for the Toast stage on Friday night with 2 hours of disco crossed with house. No matter what, when or where the two lads always deliver.
7. Shed Sessions
Between the Toast stage on Saturday and an impromptu beach set on Sunday the Shed Sessions crew were fairly busy. Elliot, Sean, Dan & Mark certainly kept the crowd going on both stages with straight up feel good house.
6. Bobofunk & Ed Fay
One of the stand out sets from the Concrete Jungle stage Johnny & Ed brought everything for your bass music needs. Warming up the stage for the legend Goldie can be an intimidating task but it was an easy job for the duo.
5. Doug Cooney
Representing RLSD Doug Cooney exhibited his flawless vinyl mixing at the Index stage on Saturday. One of Ireland’s top DJs Doug can mix pretty much any record you hand to him. Check him out below bringing the samba grooves below.
After a shakey start due to an issue with needles on the turntables Cailín powered through to deliver one of the top sets of the weekend. Picking things up at 4 am on Friday night at the Index stage after Paula Temple can leave some stranded, but Cailín didn’t lack any records to keep the party going.
3. Jon Hussey
One of Ireland’s top DJs Jon Hussey set was nothing short of a masterpiece in mixing. He packed out the Index tent with a crowd full of sweaty ravers giving them exactly what they needed.
2. Techno & Cans Crew
In the early hours of Saturday morning Sam, Tommy & Jake brought their no messing wits to the Index stage for some relentless techno. Between rave edits to oldschool classics the lads didn’t hold back.
1. Boots & Kats
Closing out the Toast stage on Saturday morning to a full tent with endless feel good tracks they easily make our number one slot. What more could you want to set up for the weekend than disco classics?
