“Vibrant, intense electronic tunes, lasers and lights transporting the kick of the drum, immersed by futuristic landscapes and ever evolving organisms – an alternative reality to get lost in and leave everything else outside. Become part of a new era of electronic music events in Dublin.”
The gig takes place from 7pm to 1am this Saturday and tickets are available on Eventbrite priced from €35.
