Softboy Records announced to play Boiler Room Festival next month

Donal Corrigan

Kean Kavanagh, Luka Palm, Kojaque and Gaptoof will play The Boiler Room festival next month.

The artists, who play under the Softboy Records collective, are set to perform on the same stage as they fly the flag in London.

The festival markets itself as an event that is not centred around one artist. They’re not advertising any headline acts over the four-day event. Instead, The Boiler Room Festival aims to promote the next generation of artists and promote the communities they thrive in.

It comes as no surprise that these lads have been selected for this carefully curated line-up. Kean Kavanagh, Kojaque, Luca Palm and Gaptooth all have been driving forces in Ireland’s new era of rap.

This isn’t the first time that Softboy Records have worked with Boiler Room. Last year Boiler Room and the partnering production company ‘4:3’ made a mini-documentary on the artists. As part of the YouTube channels ‘Contemporary Scenes’ series they followed the lads around in an exploration of Ireland’s underground music scene.
