Cork Sound Fair announce more artists for 2019 edition

“My definition of experimental music is, in the broadest sense, music that pushes boundaries and is not recognisable to that which can be heard on the main stream festival circuit.”

 

Following the inaugural Cork Sound Fair in March 2018, the non-profit weekender returns March 28 – 31 across a number of locations in the city, including The Crypt at St. Luke’s, The Kino, Millennium Hall, , St. Peter’s, Dali nightclub and more.

The festival focuses on emerging and established artists working in experimental music, sound art, electronic music, field recordings and video art.

The event says that the key principle of the project is that all proceeds raised in ticket sales go toward funding the event and directly to the artists who make it happen. In doing so, the organisers hope to bring the freshest new alternative sounds to a wider audience.

“My definition of experimental music is, in the broadest sense, music that pushes boundaries and is not recognisable to that which can be heard on the main stream festival circuit,” says Conor Ruane, Director of Cork Sound Fair. “I come from a background in electronic music which has shaped the formation of this festival. I firmly believe the most forward thinking and exciting sounds are coming from the Irish electronic music scene right now. If you aren’t familiar with some of the names on the programme I urge you to be adventurous and come check it out.”

So far, the artists set to be involved include (in alphabetical order), Abtakya Remains, Baltic, Bliss Signal, Chris Somers, Crevice, Darren Kirwan, Dreamcycles, Hames, Jimmy Wormal, Josh Warry, Last Eden, Lighght, Naïve Ted, No Sleep, Oniso, ooSe, Rachel Ní Chuinn & Renata Pekowska, Salac, UCC Javanese Gamelan, UCC Sound Day and Undling.

They’ve also announced that the closing party in Dali will feature SHIV, ELLLL and Mumdance, the latter two linking back up after their back to back set after Higher Vision last year.

Cork Sound Fair tickets start at €10 for the opening concert and the closing party, and €60 for the three-day weekend pass. Click here for more.
