Life Festival, Belvedere House, Ireland, 24-26th May
With all-night revelry and pounding basslines set against the backdrop of Belvedere House, a Georgian villa surrounded by 160 acres of Irish countryside, deep forest AND a lake, Life Festival is an electronic music festival like no other. As well as amazing music and epic parties, Life Festival puts respect for others and the environment at the centre of its ethos. Considered one of the best Dance festivals in Ireland, it was also recently listed in the ‘Top 25 Festivals to Discover before you Die’...a claim that is easy to believe!
From May 24th -26th, Life Festival invites "good vibes seekers" from all over the world, to celebrate the beginning of summer with an impeccable roster of forward-thinking, varied electronic artists alongside a range of traditional and visual arts, workshops and performances. The musical selection ranges from live bands to alternative electronic acts, but the emphasis is clearly on showcasing quality house, techno, and other 4/4 variations. But even further, Life also seems intent on showcasing some of the most unique, rare headlining sets currently on offer - with Groove Armada doing a DJ set, Modeselektor and Booka Shade coming with their live shows, and Amon Tobin presenting his ‘Two Fingers’ DJ set.
In the past month, alongside adding the legend that is Laurent Garnier to the lineup, they’ve also announced their partnership with Red Bull Music Academy, who will be hosting their own stage throughout the festival bringing some of the underground’s most respected rhythm-maestros and some past RBMA participants, including Kerri Chandler, KiNK, Floating Points, Boddika, Karenn and many more.
As well as being located amongst astonishing grounds and lake, you can expect four stages, eco-friendly camping facilities, secret areas to explore, workshops, lots of love, and pretty fantastical decorations and installations. The crowd is eclectic, international and friendly, and the sound systems are of top quality, blending all you can want from a festival deliciously into one bass-filled jar. And it's only a month away!
