AVA festival returns for its second year at the shipyard, and they’re bringing Boiler Room back for a second collaboration.
Optimo, Phil Kieran, Hubie Davison, Brame & Hamo, Hammer, Swoose and Cromby will all feature with 45 minute sets on 4th June.
The announcement is sure to please the crowd, especially with the inclusion of Optimo. The duo, made up of Twitch and Jonnie Wilkes) have a very unorthodox persona when it comes to their sets.
Ignoring the rules that genre purists ridiculously maintain, the pair choose to play whatever they want depending on their mood. Unpredictability is key; they choose to mix things up instead of providing the same old routine.
Phil Kieran is also included amongst a strong Irish line up, a line up which has been carefully crafted to promote the best of the islands talents.
Kieran has developed his own distinctive sound over time. Resident Advisor explain that he uses microphones to record anything that makes an interesting sound and mixes them to create melodies through his synths, all of which is processed using vintage equipment. Another unique artist to get the crowd stoked.
