Phase One is a small but beautiful multi-disciplinary arts festival that presents cutting edge electronic music, visual art, animation, film, masterclasses and workshops in the superb surroundings of an 18th century former courthouse in Carrick on Shannon overlooking the majestic river Shannon. We love electronic music and art in all its forms.
The inaugural festival in 2013 was a total blast (have a look at the video) and we want to make the second edition in 2014 even better! To do this we need your help.
Phase One is all about fun and the opportunity for creative expression and in 2014 we want to provide a stage for emerging Irish electronic acts to have their music heard and we need your help to make this happen. Basically we need €2,000 to cover the production cost of the stage. If you can make a contribution however small (or large) we will be able to give acts a chance to perform; and the more we get, the more acts we can offer this great opportunity to.
Phase One 2014 is happening on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th April.
The team include Enda Guckian, Alan Dunne, Kevin Moran, Paul Cunningham, Zoe Dunne and Donal McNamee. Also Donal Dineen, Edel McWeeney, Lee Guckian and Michael ‘Tricky’ Caheney.
And many more – you know who you are!
So check the great rewards on offer to become a part of Phase One 2014.
Thanks from all the team!
Just who is LTJ Bukem? Ground breaking DJ? Inspirational musician? Record label entrepreneur? Club visionary, perhaps? When the man behind those wire rimmed glasses and that disarming smile writes his job description just what does he put? The man who took the drum and bass concept from a small venue off London’s Charing Cross Road to the nation’s superclubs and then onto the international stage? The geezer whose records launched breakbeat into a brand new galaxy of sound? Or maybe he just writes ‘Renaissance man for a digital age’. In truth LTJ Bukem is all of the above.
