This festival is putting Limerick on the electronic world stage
Limerick Electronic Arts Festival, or LEAF, welcomes musicians, influencers and gamers alike in an intersection of cutting-edge technology and artistic expression that will span Limerick’s city centre from September 10-13.
The diverse line-up will feature headlining electronic artists Modeselektor and Dave Clarke along the riverside industrial backdrop of the Cleeves Factory courtyard. Nialler9 will play a curated soundtrack for festivalgoers throughout the streets of Limerick.
The award-winning Banter series with music writer Jim Carroll will have two sessions at the festival: one with writer and DJ Dave Haslam and another discussing Atari and its role in Ireland’s tech revolution.
On September 11, the festival will include a conference covering ethics of AI, how to build a brand and more with a range of esteemed guests from CEOs to mega-influencers. One panel “Can Limerick Be The Next Berlin?” will discuss Limerick’s role on the electronic world stage.
Even teen creatives will have a chance to shine at LEAF through the Creation Youth Conference on September 12. Speakers like Sammy Andrews, Jayde Vincent and Tara Stewart will be in attendance to share their experiences and skills with the next generation.
Digital workshops, late night parties and more will be announced in the coming months. Tickets are available online now.
