Ireland’s longest running electronic music festival, Celtronic, celebrates its 17th anniversary this summer returning to Derry~Londonderry from Wednesday June 28 to Sunday July 2. The acclaimed event regularly attracts thousands of music fans to the city to dance to the world’s best electronic music talent at some of Ireland's finest venues, including the iconic Guildhall.
This year's festival is shaping up to be the best yet with a line-up studded with some of dance music's biggest names, including Detroit legend Carl Craig and BPitch Control label manager and all-round creative dynamo, Ellen Allien. Hessle Audio’s Ben UFO, one of contemporary dance music’s most daring and wide-ranging selectors returns to the festival as does Chicago’s finest The Black Madonna, who will be back in Derry following a festival-stealing performance in 2016.
A number of the world’s most exciting DJs will also make their first Celtronic appearances at this year. Amongst them Novel Sound’s Levon Vincent, De School, Amsterdam resident Job Jobse and DJ Mike Servito. Meanwhile futuristic disco trio Harvey Sutherland and Bermuda make the trip from Melbourne, Australia to perform their first ever Irish show as part of the festival.
As has come to be expected, the festival will feature some of the best DJs, producers and live acts from the wider Derry and Irish scene, the likes of which include The Cyclist (Hypercolour-All City), Or:la (Deep Sea Frequency-Hotflush), The Queen & Disco and Darren Allen (Underlying Form – Discobar) with many more acts still to be announced.
