Digitalism

LEAF 2020 (Limerick Electronic Arts Festival) happens in the city on March 5-8. The festival aims to position Limerick city front and centre in the world of electronic arts at the intersection of technology and artistic expression.

More events have been announced including an Electronic Carnival featuring a Family Rave, a Youth Conference and live shows from Digitalism and legendary techno DJ Dave Clarke.

German dance music pioneers Digitalism will perform at the carnival on Friday March 6 at the Leaf Pop Up Warehouse.
From their classic album “Idealism” and its huge single “Zdarlight” to their stellar remixes foe White Stripes and Daft Punk, Digitalism are as at home in the mosh pit as they are on the club dance floor.

Joining them at this special opening night party will be a man who was one of the first international DJs to play in Limerick 25 years ago and is now a global name in techno. Dave Clarke is a titan of electronic music, from his eponymous parties at Amsterdam Dance Event to his Radio Show White Noise beamed to over 40 radio networks around the world, it promises to be the perfect musical foil to Digitalism.

Tickets from www.ticketmaster.ie for the Electronic Carnival at LEAF go on sale this Friday 20 at 9am.
