We’re taking over the entirety of Workman’s for December 26 – come join the District family for a bop.
Kicking off at 21:00, we’ve invited our friends and supporters in the industry, blending all things hip-hop, techno and Irish culture for a modern twist on the classic Christmas party.
Featuring a star-studded line-up including MOIO, lowkick and Qbanaa, this event is not to be missed.
‘District Presents: St. Stephen’s Day‘ is coming to the Workman’s Main Room and Cellar on Monday 26 December. Doors open at 21:00, with tickets costing 10 euro.
Live performances on the night will include Qbanaa – a jazzy neo-soul artist who takes inspiration from Erykah Badu, Hiatus Kaiyote and Amy Winehouse to name a few. Her debut single ‘Truth and Desire’ was listed in the top 40 Irish songs of the year by RTE 2XM and appeared on four Spotify editorial playlists including Breath of Fresh Eire.
She’ll be joined by hip-hop trio lowkick. Coming from different musical backgrounds, lowkick are not bound by one type of genre, showing a fusion of elements from jazz, neo-soul, and electronic music in their self-produced and self-mixed instrumentals.
Blkcnvs will also be bringing soulful, funky vibes to Workman’s next Monday. The first-generation Nigerian-Irish DJ has a passion for hunting for edits and flips that keep dance floors moving. DJ sets from him can contain a spectrum of music genres such as Afrofusion, Balie Funk, Disco, Future Beats, UKG and more.
In the cellar, newcomer to the Dublin DJ scene siofselects will be playing tunes sourced from genres including techno, garage, ghetto and breakbeat. She’ll be joined by Malaysian-Irish R&B, hip-hop & afrobeat DJ Maeann and visual artist and DJ Cian Bolger on the decks.
Tickets for ‘District Presents: St. Stephen’s Day‘ are available here.
