Ireland’s Metropolis Festival Reveals “Conversations” Lineup


November in Dublin is going to be special. The multi-faceted Metropolis Festival will assume a weekend residency in the wandering grounds of the Royal Dublin Society, bringing a ridiculously strong lineup filled with some of the biggest names in the world of electronic music (Jeff Mills, Matthew Herbert, Omar Souleyman, Floating Points, Four Tet) with a peppering of slightly more divergent bookings (The Roots, Booka Brass Band).

Alongside the predictably mind-blowing performances will be cinema screenings and art installations, and some conversations, lectures and spoken word from some pillars of the electronic, dance and punk community. Held in the hallowed Library and Concert Hall spaces, audiences will hear from the likes of Giorgio Moroder, Howard Marks, Sir David Rodigan and John Cooper Clarke, whilst "The Legend of The Hacienda" invites a panel of Dave Haslam, Mike Pickering, Greg Wilson and Ben Kelly to review and reminisce over the origins of Britains most famous spawning points of electronic music and club culture.

More info about the performances, conversations and other goings on can be grabbed from the Metropolis Festival website, along with tickets, now.
