Irish DJ and producer Saoirse will be headlining the MainStage. And, back by popular demand, Irish electronic artist Elaine Mai is teaming up again with MayKay and guests for a thrilling performance.
Mother DJs including Ruth Kavanagh and Ghosboy & Rocky T Delgado will pump out the music for an all-night dance party to remember, alongside guests Kelly-Anne Byrne and Puzzy Wrangler. And you won’t want to miss out on the chance to see HAUS of W.I.G’s drag-centric cabaret show.
If you want to get your toes tapping in a more traditional sense, hot-foot it over to the Géilí (queer céilí), hosted by podcast host PJ Kirby with help from quick-stepping drag superstars, River Drag.
