More exciting news at the National Concert Hall today.

The renowned electronic label Erased Tapes have been announced for a venue takeover of the national institution on Saturday May 20th with 4 rooms of music from the label’s artists.

Headlined by UK electronic producer Rival Consoles and legendary ensemble Penguin Café (featuring former members of Suede and Gorillaz), the illustrious line-up also features a Kiasmos DJ set from Janus Rasmussen and a live performance from Galway-based American songsmith Peter Broderick.

In addition, Japanese voice artist Hatis Noit makes a welcome return to the National Concert Hall after her lauded Haunted Dancehall performance last year and we are proud to present the first Irish solo show from Berlin-based cellist and long-time Nils Frahm collaborator Anne Müller.

About Erased Tapes

Founded by sonic architect and explorer Robert Raths aka ghostworker in 2007, Erased Tapes has consistently nurtured genre-defying artists from all around the world without losing its avant-garde ethos. This special event will see Rival Consoles and Penguin Café lead a four-stage celebration of ground-breaking sonic experimentation.

Rival Consoles aka London-based producer Ryan Lee makes a welcome return to these shores in advance of his sold-out summer Barbican headline show. He will perform a set featuring tracks from his latest acclaimed records Articulation (2020) and Overflow (2021).

Arthur Jeffes’ beloved Penguin Cafe featuring Neil Codling (Suede), Cass Browne (Gorillaz), Oli Langford (Florence + the Machine) and Darren Berry (Razorlight) return to the NCH having just released a lovingly produced 10th anniversary reissue of their debut album, A Matter of Life… 2021.
