Caterina Barbieri will also be making her Irish debut at the Haunted Dance Hall on October 1 at 20:00. Caterina is an Italian composer known for her experimental electroacoustic sounds combined with classical sensibilities. The synth virtuoso will perform her new live show The Spirit Exit on NCH’s Main Stage.

Leading the Irish performances is electronica pioneer Roger Doyle, who will perform on October 2. Other Irish performers include rising DJ R. Kitt, reflective electronic artist Fears, and the mesmirising Sunil Sharpe.

Performers from abroad also include Norwegian duo Smerz. Henriette Motzfeldt and Catharina Stoltenberg are known for weaving together techniques and sounds pulled from chamber and classical music, hip hop, R&B, and hard electronics for an uncanny performance.
