We are Ireland’s most established & revered festival for electronic music, Life originated from the Glade Arena at Glastonbury. Becoming a festival in its own right in 2004. Every year since it has grown to become Ireland's most anticipated dance music event & the start of the summer festival season.
The right setting is a key part of the Life ethos. Previous venues have included Charleville Castle, Ballinlough Castle & Lough Cutra Castle, before settling on our current home at the beautiful surroundings of Belvedere House, where the grounds & lake have become synonymous with the event. Offering the ideal naturalistic escape.
Attracting recognised international talent, as well as home-grown ‘ones to watch’, Life has maintained a close connection to the musical roots of electronic music culture. Our guests to date have included many of the seminal acts in electronic music; Grooverider, Coldcut, Max Romeo, Goldie, Andrew Weatherall, Carl Craig, Green Velvet, Ricardo Villalobos, Chris Liebing, LTJ Bukem, Ben Sims, Surgeon, Mad Professor, Armand Van Helden, Doc Scott, Neil Landstrumm, Jeff Mills, The Orb, Sandwell District, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Martyn, Jeff Mills, San Soda & 100s more.
