Lá Tech festival in Galway blew fans and critics’ minds alike when they first revealed their huge techno lineup which included names like I Hate Models, Rebekah, Tinfoil, Ancient Methods and a host of big Irish names in Jamie Behan, Tommy Holohan and more.
With such a well thought out lineup in tow, they have pulled together an impressive cast for their conferences that will also be taking place at the festival.
We’ll be hosting our own discussion alongside the legends that are Sunil Sharpe and Rebekah, discussing their time in the industry and the aspects that have stuck out to them given their time at the top of the game, working with some of the biggest labels such as Soma and Rave or Die as well as of course playing some of the biggest shows and venues in existence.
Joining them on the conference line up will be Real Sound, Ableton, Bear in Mind and One World sounds, who among them will be taking on a wide range of topics, from mental health in clubbing to music production and demonstration, making the festival a definite go to for all the dedicated electronic music heads. Not only that, but the day time will also have its fair share of music, with sets coming in the shape of Gash Collective’s Laura Lolz, DIE’s Dan Sykes, Galway’s Origin and more too.
Accompanying the announcement is their reveal of the day by day breakdown that makes a trip to the West coast that bit more convenient for people that can only make it for one day at a time.
The Saturday will be headlined by the iconic pairing of Sunil Sharpe and DeFeKT, who will be playing live under Tinfoil, right after they launch their album this weekend. Joining them is none other than Rebekah, followed by a strong Irish cast of Tommy Holohan, Doug Cooney, Techno & Cans, Mossy Hynes, Anti Social Acid Club and Basement Project’s DJs.
