Things are slowing down slightly after the sunny bank holiday weekend with Forbidden Fruit, AVA and Life happening last week but don’t fear as there’s still plenty of gigs happening around the country. While we have a week or two to wait until Higher Visions, Circles and more electronic music festivals happening around the country this month there’s still plenty happening to tide us over in the meantime.
Outlook Festival Launch at Wigwam
Spectrum and Boey Audio present us with the official Dublin launch party of Croatia’s Outlook Festival 2018, reputable for their alternative location choices. The line up boasts plenty of drum ‘n’ bass legends from home and abroad including ANT TC1, Dublin’s Steo and Zero T and many more.
HAAi at Pyg
Teneil Throssell, who plays under the name HAAi, arrived in London originally as part of a psychedelic band, but her avid collection of Turkish funk and Afrobeat inspired her to take on a new electronic project resulting in moody, bassy and percussive house and techno. Support on the night comes from Colin Perkins and Ian Duffy.
The Balance Series at The South William
The Balance Series is launching at The South William this Friday night with residents Colin Devine, Sarah Mooney and more with the aim of providing an equal platform for both female and male electronic talent in Ireland. Each week will see half of the female curation by Sarah Mooney and half of the male curation by Colin Devine, with three floors of electronic music and free entry every Friday night.
999999999 at Index
Italian duo 999999999 return to index thanks to Techno & Cans and Research this Friday night. 999999999 tend to stay more on the mysterious side, leaving their audiences with not much information about them apart from their music, which after their last show at Index we can say is intense, acidy techno.
Produse at 39/40
Livewire are bringing Produse back to 39/40 after his return from Australia. Playing with him on the night includes Lauren from Eve collective and Dan Mac for some massive house and techno sounds.
Kastis Torrau at Wah Wah ClubKastis Torrau will be taking to the basement of The South William for a three-hour set full of tuneful house and progressive tech house rhythms and sounds.

Joining him on the night will be Maggie Rose and Zee Ziggy.
