DART – 00:00-01:00 – Keep Her Lit Stage
George Feely – 02:00 – 03:00 – Keep Her Lit Stage
Local Dublin selector and well known figure within Dublin’s electronic music circuit, George Feely dabbles in what’s usually funk orientated house music in many of his residencies around Dublin and on line ups around the country alike. With an ear for house and disco he’s released plenty of tracks and edits during his time, with recent involvement with labels such as Random Mind State.
Adamant – 23:00 – 00:00 – Keep Her Lit Stage
Adamant’s music has the ability to teleport you to a summery tropical paradise no matter where you are, with disco and house tunes made in heaven and an ear for some of the grooviest samples around.
Long Island Sound – 22:00 – 23:00 – Keep Her Lit Stage
The Berlin based Irish producers have been consistently impressing with releases of variant punchy house tracks that make you sway at regular gigs here at home and internationally.
Shlomo – 22:00 – 23:00 – Ogham Alignment Stage
The Taapion boss has become one of the top names in the genre through his seemingly endless catalogue of music, and of course his residency in the Parisian venue CONCRETE that has played host to some of the biggest names techno is likely to ever see. Read an interview with Shlomo by Cóilí Collins here.
Aeron – 02:00 – 03:00 – Ogham Alignment Stage
Shaun Darcy has played a large hand in Dublin’s party scene over the last 29 years with a wide collection of music that will get absolutely everybody dancing, fresh off playing at the rave in the woods at Electric Picnic.
