Alternating Current Festival

Varies, Tuesday 26th October - Sunday 31st October

‘Alternating Current’ is Dublin’s new city festival, curated by Dublin Digital Radio, to show Ireland’s other music traditions. Weird, eerie, noisy, loud, lamenting…

This inaugural festival is a celebration of the networks that converge on ddr., an ode to the airwaves as a space of commune and solidarity during crisis, while also being a response by the station to a wide range of artists that are each exhaustive experimenters in their own right.

For Alternating Current, Dublin Digital Radio commissioned sixteen of these artists to make new work and have them perform it over the duration of the festival. Beginning October 27th on listen.dublindigitalradio.com, the Alternating Current programme features specially commissioned radio works and audiovisuals from Jennifer Walshe & Wobbly, Rachel Ni Chuin, Renee Helena Browne, The Digital Druids and Last Eden.

Events will then move to The Complex’s Gallery Space over the Hallowe’en weekend (October 30th and 31st) where a series of 3-hour, in-person concerts will take place, followed by some late-night dancing at a venue close to the city centre.
