Festival season is well and truly here and we couldn’t be any more excited to kick it off at Life Festival next weekend.
Life Festival has been at the forefront of the Irish house & techno scene for a number of years now, bringing the biggest and best artists on the circuit year-after-year.
This year is proving to be no different with an absolutely stellar lineup announced for the festival.
We had a look at the lineup and picked out the nine artists that we feel would be a crime to miss down at Belvedere House next week.
KETTAMA is without doubt one of the most exciting talents to come out of Ireland in the last couple of years and has been playing at some of the biggest clubs and stages there are alongside some stacked lineups. We’re buzzed for his return to Life Festival.
Paula Temple was one of the standout acts at Life Festival back in 2017, where she took no prisoners at a packed out Index Stage. Her relentless approach to playing banging techno creates an intense atmosphere that is hard to match. We can’t recommend her enough!
The Belfast duo are making their first appearance at the festival since 2016 and since then have gone on to become one of the most iconic acts in modern dance music with their live set becoming a thing of legend the world over… The pair will be playing a DJ set at this years festival and anyone who knows just how deep their record bags go, will know just how amazing this is going to be!
I Hate Models
One of France’s finest exports, I Hate Models burst on to the techno scene back in 2016 with his etherial ‘Daydream’ track on ARTS and since then has gone on to command slots on some of the biggest festival/club lineups around… His sets always consist of raw, driving techno layered with intricate melodies & acid lines
Sally C is one of the Ireland’s busiest DJs, since moving the Berlin she has managed to carve a space for herself in the busy and trying music industry through her eclectic DJ sets and her ability to make a crowd move is second-to-none. We’ve been lucky enough to catch her play in the past and she’s quite high up on our ‘DO NOT MISS’ list for Life Festival.
Armand Jakobsson, better known as DJ Seinfeld, is a Swedish DJ/Producer who has been rising up the ranks of the global house scene over the last 3 years. Since his breakthrough Lo-Fi hits such as ‘U’, Armand has gone on to deliver some of the most sublime productions the dance music community has heard in years and we’re really looking forward to catching him in action!
Boots & Kats
Boots & Kats and Life Festival come in hand-in-hand, you can’t think of one without the other, and for good reason. The Dublin duo’s sunrise sets on the infamous Toast Stage have become legendary amongst Irish dance music fans and they always deliver a party vibe with each and every set they play, ranging from house & acid to breaks & disco, they’ve got something for every occasion… A must see
Rebekah is a techno heavyweight and realistically, you’re probably already going to see her anyway… BUT, if for some strange reason you hadn’t planned on it, we highly recommend that you reconsider as she is sure to be one of the stand out acts of the weekend, as she always is any time she plays.
Irish fan-favourite Tommy Holohan returns to Life Festival this year after an impressive performance on in a rammed tent at the Index Stage last year. The Rush native has been consistently pushing the boundaries of modern techno and has been going from strength-to-strength picking up shows all over Europe and landing releases on the likes of Haven & Monnom Black as well as his own Rave Selekts imprint… Don’t sleep on this!
