The open-air event will have a capacity of 4,000, with Adam Beyer headlining
Saturday 28 August will see the city of Derry in Northern Ireland playing host to the Drumcode crew, at an all-day event staged by the organisers of Jika Jika Festival.
Launched in 2018, Jika Jika Festival quickly established itself as Northern Ireland's premier electronic music events. Unfortunately, of course, the coronavirus pandemic then came along to put a lockdown-shaped spoke in the works.
Undeterred, though, the Jika Jika crew have teamed up with Adam Beyer's all-conquering Drumcode to help get the NI dance scene back on its feet as we emerge blinking into the post-covid light. The event will be taking place at the city's brand new The Boneyard venue, which is described as “a disused urban dystopia transformed into a multi-purpose event space”.
The Drumcode label boss himself will headline the party, ably supported by label regulars Joseph Capriait and Rebuke, plus Yasmin Gardezi, who hails from the opposite corner of Ireland in Co Kerry and is also part of the all-Irish, all-female MOTZ Berlin collective.
The event runs from 2pm-11pm and with capacity limited to 4,000, tickets are already selling fast. But at time of writing they're still available at £39.50 – so if you want to go, get yourself over to Jika Jika Festival's own website quick…
