Alternating Current announce stage times and new additions for The Complex this weekend


Alternating Current, Dublin Digital Radio has announced new acts and a timetable for this weekend’s festival of electronic & electroacoustic music, AV art, sound & multimedia performance happens from October 27th – 29th of October 2023 at The Complex in Dublin city.

New adds include DJ Egg, a DJ known for bass-heavy tunes and a passion for Jungle, Footwork, and club music; Filmore!, the project of Tebi Rex’s Max Zanga which leans on drum & bass and garage beats, nu-metal, pop-punk guitars, hyperpop and rap.

This year’s festival is organised around the theme of “meitheal” an Irish word denoting a historical practice of community labour in the production of the common goods. For AC23 we want to explore sonic commons – ways in which the production of and experience of sounds is always a collaborative process – connecting us into a network of historical and contemporary movements, technologies and people.

Here’s the day-by-day schedule, with online DDR-only activity happening on the 29th.
