ABSENT KELLY PRESENT MAYDAY feat Gus Alt-J (DJ Set), Everything Everything (DJ Set), XFM (DJ Set) & Dexters (DJ Set)


This May day, come and celebrate an indie blowout of incredible proportions on the largest stage that Absent Kelly has ever brought bands to!

One of the aforementioned big name DJs joining us for the evening is Alt-J’s Gus to share a portion of his painfully cool record collection with us. With the release of their latest album ‘This Is All Yours’ in 2014, the Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Award winners have become even bigger, selling out the O2 Area to 20,000 fans.

The comeback kids of the moment, Everything Everything will be spinning some records too. After the success of their first two albums, the Mercury nominated group’s first single from this new record, ‘Distant Past’ is already receiving rave reviews from press and radio alike and they’ve bagged a number of high profile festival slots over the summer including T in the Park, Longitude, Parklife and Lollapalooza.

The Capital’s biggest Alternative radio station, XFM will also be loaning us their queen of the airwaves for the evening, Sunta Templeton. More used to DJing to huge crowds like at Benicassim Festival as well as on XFM’s Weekender show, Sunta knows what the people want to hear!

Fresh off the back of a national tour with The View, indie up and comers, Dexters will also be joining us to top off this massive bill in style! With all this, live bands, fire breathers and plenty more, consider this the start of festival season!"
