LIFE FES­TI­VAL Lough Cu­tra Cas­tle, Gort, Co Gal­way Fri-Sun ¤150 The Ir­ish love af­fair with sum­mer fes­ti­vals has been good news for the Neu­tronyx crew. They are back in Co Gal­way for their third bash, fea­tur­ing one of the most di­verse line-ups of the sum­mer, with six mu­sic stages run­ning from Fri­day af­ter­noon right through to late on Sun­day.

Neu­tronyx may usu­ally be as­so­ci­ated with trance and psy­trance club nights, yet a line-up which in­cludes Max Romeo (be­low), Cold­cut, DJ Marky, Fin­ley Quaye (long as­sumed to be miss­ing in ac­tion), Al­loy Men­tal, youth­ful dub­step don Skream, Jon Kennedy, and much more, shows that the or­gan­is­ers know they need to ap­peal to a wider au­di­ence.

Nat­u­rally, there will also be tranc­ing, and high-qual­ity tranc­ing at that, thanks to the pres­ence of Hal­lu­cino­gen’s Si­mon Pos­ford, but variety re­ally is the spice of this Life. Only draw­back? Jug­glers, lots of jug­glers, all prob­a­bly wear­ing silly hats. Jim Car­roll Can’T see ThaT? CaTch This

Rare ap­pear­ance from Dop­pleref­fekt (Satur­day, Dublin), a Spirit re­union for a good cause (Fri­day, Dublin) and Mr Whippy goes trav­el­ling (Satur­day, Ca­van)
