12 must-see acts


1.

The Black Madonna

Road To Nowhere, Friday, August 3rd.

One of the buzziest DJs in the World right now, The Black Madonna was named Mixmag’s DJ of the year 2016 and recently made resident DJ at Chicago’s infamous Smart Bar. Her set will be a tour de force of uplifting house and disco. Check out her nuts Boiler Room with Mike Servito.


2.

Hot Chip Megamix

Road To Nowhere,Sunday, August 5th.

Hot Chip are absolute stalwarts of the British dance scene. Ditching the guitars and synths in favour of the decks for their set at ATN will definitely yield interesting results and this sounds like it’s going to feature a lot of Hot Chip in an apparently improvised setting so definitely not merely a band phoning it in.


3.

Horse Meat Disco

Road To Nowhere, Friday, August 3rd.

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Horse Meat Disco are a foursome with a penchant for all things disco. They dig deep and always have records that’ll make you want to seek them out. Check out the second part of their mammoth 4 hour London Boiler Room. Proving that not all BR crowds just stand around looking bored.


4.

Shanti Celeste

Road To Nowhere, Saturday, August 4th.

Bristol native Shanti Celeste will be bringing her brand of UK influenced deep house to Curraghmore house deep in the heart of Saturday night. Expect super deep lows and superb mixing skills.


5.

Saoirse

Arcadia Spectacular, Friday, August 3rd.

The first Irish addition to our list, Saoirse spins the kind of heart warming techno and house music befitting All Together Now’s very first opening night. Check out her Boiler Room mix for a preview on the treat you’re in for.


6.

DJ Deece

Arcadia Spectacular, Friday, August 3rd.

Hidden Agenda resident DJ Deece is a bit of a jack of all trades. Catch him in the Workman’s and he might drop some of the freshest hip-hop, catch him in a basement somewhere in the city and you might be treated to a dose of techno. For his Boiler Room, filmed at AVA Festival, he played all disco and opened with Krystal Klear’s ‘Neutron Dance’. If he does that again at ATN there could be riots.


7.

Sally Cinnamon

All My Friends, Saturday, August 4th.

Sally Cinnamon’s been a staple of the Irish dance scene since the early 00’s. With residencies in Tripod, Ri-Ra as well as her own show on Radiomade all on the C.V along with cohosting Loose Joints on this very site, there’s few DJs as qualified to get hips swaying. Expect an ecletic mix of music spanning decades and genres and some fine shtyle on stage.


8.

Sim Simma

One Love Stage, Friday, August 3rd.

Sim Simma are a Dublin based collective with a taste for exotic dance styles. Performing twice over the weekend at Curraghmore,including a set with their own soundsystem on their own stage on the Friday night, either of their sets are a must see who those who are at all interested in music of other borders.


9.

Johnny Moy

All My Friends, Sunday, August 5th.

A staple of the Irish rave scene since the early 90s, Johnny Moy is one of the most experienced DJs on our list. Having cut his teeth helping to run and DJing in venues like RedBox and The Kitchen, Moy now spends much of his time working on film, including The Young Offenders and most recently Dublin Old School who are hosting a stage. Expect some straight up old school house.


10.

DIP

One Love, Sunday, August 5th.

DIP are an Irish DJ collective comprised of DJs Cáit, Enda & Robbie. The trio have a weekly show on Raidio na Life and send their air time filling Irish ears with minimal house and a smattering of Techno. Check out their totally bonkers mix below.
