The Red Bull Soundome is a geodesic dome featuring 46 speakers and 5 subwoofers under the floor that provides a totally unique dancing/listening experience and it’ll be in the woods near Trenchtown at Electric Picnic next weekend.
I got the chance to try it out this week from its home in Kilkenny and for a DJ, it offers the opportunity to play music physically as well as sonically, as the sound engulfs the audience in the covered dome.
The capacity is only 50 people and along with myself playing in it on Sunday night at 10pm, Leo Pearson and Replete will play a 90 minute 16-channel music piece each day and the rest of the lineup looks like this:
Friday, 1st Sept:
Ghostboy, Wry Myrrh, Mangetout ft. Frankie Wolf, Leo Pearson
Saturday, 2nd Sept:
Donal Dineen, Replete, EVE, Leo Pearson
Sunday, 3rd Sept:
New Jackson, Nialler9, Daire Carolan, Leo Pearson
