Festival Series: This Summer’s Must See Irish Acts
July 15, 2015
Hitting up any music festivals this summer? Wondering which Irish acts you should be checking out? We’ve put together a list of 6 must see Irish acts at some of this year’s top festivals.
An electronic pop group duo from Cork that broke through in mid 2012, after the release of their self-titled debut EP and stand-out single, ‘To You’. They’ve continued to create great music and have supported acts like Alt J.
An Irish electronic 4-piece, bursting with cyber-synths, pounding techno and sonic guitar wizardry. This all sounds pretty heavy but they’re some fun, easy listening. If you like what you hear you’re in for a treat as they’ve recently signed up with Universal Music Ireland and are set to release a new album.
Jape is Richard Egan’s solo project that hit it big in 2008 when they were covered by Raconteurs and won the prestigious Choice Music Prize. Jape’s music is a mix of meticulously crafted lyrics with an upbeat electronic rhythm that will be a treat for any festival goer.
