That’s a good an excuse as any to head out and have a bit of fun this weekend! Check out our list of the best events on in Dublin this weekend…


Subject x Bodytonic present: Marcel Dettmann @ District 8

A true titan in the field of contemporary techno. Dettmann’s regular spots include some of the most coveted billings on the globe, with Berlin’s Berghain being a quintessential location to witness one of his sets.

Friday and Saturday

The veteran Indie performer’s most recent album, Carrie & Lowell, has been hailed as one of the best in his distinguished career and has kicked off another huge summer of touring for the Michigan native. Don’t miss the chance to catch to witness one of the most consistently interesting voices in music over the past decade.


A Guy Called Gerald @ Button Factory

A colossus from the heyday of the Manchester acid house scene. This Saturday The Button Factory plays host to a rare gig from the dance music legend responsible for the timeless classic Voodoo Ray. Expect some vintage dance cuts evoking Manchester and Ibiza of the late 80s and an energetic performance.

Soda: Ted Apollo @ The Bernard Shaw

A chillout Sunday sesh with sumptuous beats when you’re hungry for more and a nice crowd of peeps if you’re able for more socialising. Ted Apollo is one third of the acclaimed band Cloud Castle Lake and regularly spins at the Shaw, delivering the finest in rare soul, funk, disco, afrobeat and a smidge of boogaloo.

Have a good one, pals!
