News: Red Bull 'Free Gaff' Brand New Acts Announced

Red Bull Free Gaff BARQ 2018

Info: Having lifted the lid on the MOTHER of ALL house parties, this Easter weekend, Red Bull Music presents FREE GAFF - three nights of debaucherous fun across three floors with three genres of music and all in a top secret location. 

Let’s get this party started! LE GALAXIE will be cutting up the dance floor with their renowned DJ sets. With their hotly anticipated album out in a few weeks produced by Swedish pop mind, Blende, you don’t want to miss this set. Their debut was named Ireland’s album of the year and with huge tunes like Le Club, there’s already enough in their arsenal to get the house pumping. Expecting a mix of their past and future work full of thundering electro, bursting to life with shimmering cyber-synths, pounding techno rhythms and guitar wizardry. Think the best tunes, stomping synths, sweaty dancing, surrounded by mates, in a massive gaff. BYOB? BBQ? BOOM!

There’s a four-piece force arriving on our gaff’s doorstep…. BARQ. We’ll warmly welcome in their Agrosoul into the party. Since their debut single “Gentle Little Lies”, which received huge acclaim, they’ve melted the rock sound and the crowds who hear it. They were tipped by the Irish Times as ‘Top Fifty To Watch in 2017’ and have featured on the front cover of Hot Press. A delicious live performance from these guys awaits. 

KOJAQUE is a Dublin based writer, producer and visual artist who has been making waves on the hip hop circuit with enticing visuals and honest, empathetic lyricism for the past three years. Co-founder of Soft Boy Records, his energy and passion shine through in his lively and highly visual performances.

A former Red Bull Music Academy alumni, GARETH ANTON AVERILL is an award-winning, multidisciplinary film-maker from Dublin, who is bringing his ‘Aquarium III’ audio-visual installation to the gaff. It’s an immersive, interactive and modular presentation of electronic music composed by Gareth. In the strange, golden, underwater environment, the audience control the arrangement of the piece, and the visuals that accompany the sounds. The king of AV has worked with artists such as David Kitt, Jape, Primordial and Dread Sovereign. This is a special once-off presentation, prepared especially for the Red Bull Music Free Gaff!

There will also be some very Special Guests on the roster too, but you gotta come to the FREE GAFF to find out who they are!

From 7PM each night will be a different experience, with a different lineup and like every proper house party, this is a BYOB affair. The event will take place in Dublin city centre and the exact location will be confirmed by email to all ticket holders no later than 24 hours in advance of their selected date.
