TRAD FESTIVAL Feakle Festival Small but per­fectly formed, the Feakle Festival is a mag­net for lovers of tra­di­tional mu­sic seek­ing out a more in­ti­mate set­ting in which to savour tunes, songs and the odd high step of a céilí dance. This year’s pro­gramme is burst­ing with the likes of Liam Ó Maon­laí’s Ré, The Tulla Céilí Band, Out the Gap, Seán Garvey (be­low) and many more. DANCE/PUNK Dublab Those with long-term tuned-in mem­o­ries will re­call pro­ducer/ video artist David Bickley from pi­o­neer­ing dance/am­bi­ent fu­sion­ists Hyper [Borea], drum­mer Rob McKa­hey from post-punk odd­i­ties Stump, and James O’Leary from muchloved In­ter­fer­ence. Here the trio team up for an ex­clu­sive evening of trance-like beats, riffs, dub­step grooves and mes­meric vi­su­als (ma­nip­u­lated live, from Bickley’s cache of video art). Clon­akilty? No won­der it’s Ju­lian Cope’s favourite Ir­ish town. HOUSE Flip­side x Tengu A rare visit to town from Kosta Athanas­siadis, the Ger­man DJ and pro­ducer with the Greek fam­ily back­ground known as XDB. After a spell be­hind the counter in var­i­ous record shops, Athanas­siadis took the plunge with his Metrolux la­bel a decade ago and hasn’t looked back. Such early re­leases as Descap, picked up by François Ker­vorkian’s Wave Mu­sic, es­tab­lished his cre­den­tials as the go-to pro­ducer for tough, imag­i­na­tive pro­duc­tions. Sup­port from Slow­burn and Lime Street Mu­sic’s Dave Har­gadon. SOUND ART Sonic Boxes
