The Cellar continues their weekly parties with two stellar line ups this weekend. You can expect minimal and melodic techno on Friday.

No tickets available online, just 10 euro entry fee on the door.

One of the hottest names in UK dance music touches down in Wigwams basement this Saturday for a night of lush breaks, garage, bass, hardcore, rave and more. Lesko completes the bill. You can purchase tickets HERE.

Two of the country’s fastest rising DJs in Yasmin Gardezi and IMNOTYOURMATE go back to back in a unique outdoor venue setting in Belfast this Saturday. Support on the evening will be provided by Crock and Caolan Patrick in what will be a fantastic show for everyone involved. This will be a belter. You can purchase tickets HERE.
The Sugar Club Presents – I Could Be Anything I Want: In celebration of SOPHIE.
Friday has a brilliant gig focused on the life of SOPHIE including a panel discussion and Q&A accompanied by DJ sets on the evening by Wastefellow, darkmavis and Roo Honeychild. Anyone who is aware of SOPHIE will be aware of how influential her music was and how much she meant to so many. I have no doubt that this will be an emotional yet bittersweet evening. You can purchase tickets HERE.
Index & Subject Presents: Dave Clarke
Dave Clarke is one of the most prominent figures in techno. From releases on XL Recordings to touring the world playing at the very best techno parties known to man. It’s safe to say the man is a techno legend. Whenever Dave is in town, it’s time to drop everything and put your dancing shoes on. You can purchase tickets HERE.
Hidden Love & Embedded Present: Alarico At The Soundhouse
Hidden Love and Embedded team up for the first time in bringing over Alarico this bank holiday Sunday, with local hero PageOne also booked as a joint headliner. Billy Spike Iland will be going b2b with Spedned on support for what will be an evening dedicated to hard groove and hypnotic techno. DLRM residents will be supplying the smoking area soundtrack on the terrace. One that I am sure that will not disappoint.

Tengu Presents: Long Island Sound
The Dublin duo are celebrating their album launch ‘Lost Connection’ on their own label Signs Of Space at Tengu this Sunday. Expect a variety of house, breaks, electro and fresh material from one of Dublin’s most treasured duo’s. You can purchase tickets HERE.
Motion Presents – Yasmin Gardezi and Riot Code at Fifth Avenue Letterkenny.
This bank holiday Sunday Yasmin Gardezi and Riot Code will grace Fifth Avenue in Letterkenny in what will be a memorable yet exhilarating evening. Support will be provided by 666cmg, Cody Wong, Odhran Mahon, and Aaron Keaveney. I expect this gig to be wild from the off. This venue looks to be somewhat of a hidden gem, much like Donegal itself. The low roof it possesses is an early indicator that things are bound to get loose. You can purchase tickets HERE.
