MUSIC: Metropolis Festival returns to the RDS

THE Metropolis Festival, a unique indoor event set in the stunning industrial warehouses and venues within the beautiful RDS complex, is back for its third outing.

Located right in the heart of Dublin, this is an urban festival not to be missed. This October Bank Holiday is shaping up to be one to remember with two days of amazing music, art installations, performance and conversation where you can kick back and relax.

The 2017 edition kicks off with a special Opening Concert on Saturday, October 28 across two stages.

This will be followed with the biggest night of the year, the October Bank Holiday Sunday which will see eight hours of music, performance and conversation across six stages.

Headlining the Opening Night Concert are the awesome Leftfield, performing their seminal album ‘Leftism’ live.

One of electronic music’s all-time greatest acts will be followed by the first Irish show in five years for Richard Fearless’ outfit Death in Vagas, who will bring their signature blend of electronic, dub, techno and guitar sounds to Metropolis.

FJAAK, an electronic music trio born and raised in Berlin, are childhood friends who have been making hardware-based techno together for a few years now, releasing a few EPs before landing on Modeselektor's 50 Weapons label in 2014.

They have since attracted worldwide attention with an alternative and boundary pushing take on classic techno, house and breakbeat.

Another highlight is Peggy Gou, a Berlin-based Korean artist who, through a regular stream of high quality mixes, has begun to turn heads in underground circles.

Sitting somewhere between Detroit, London and Berlin in sound, her DJ sets are an assured, kinetic combination of dark, pulsing house and techno, broken beats and abstract compositions.

She is a unique artist and we cannot wait to catch her live.

 DJ Deece’s star is on the up, and you can expect an amazing set from this up and comer.

Meanwhile, our very own Irish eight-piece Booka Brass Band features trumpets, trombones, saxophones, sousaphones and drums – and they know how to get a party started.

They’ve performed the length and breadth of the country and have been special guests to the likes of Hot 8 Brass Band and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble.
