Women’s Work: KEM DJ Set
Jun 3 @ 9:00 pm

Hailing from a wee village in Tyrone, KEM cut her teeth mixing while living in Hanoi, Vietnam. She swiftly gained a solid reputation for her selections, and became a regular name on lineups in the city’s underground music scene. Now with her dancing feet firmly planted back on home soil, KEM is touted as one of Belfast’s rising talents. Her taste is strongly influenced by the alternative sounds of the 80’s – a transformative musical era of funk, post-disco, new wave & post punk. You can expect a dark, yet funk-fuelled electronic music experience to get bodies grooving. Free in, spinning from 9pm-11pm in the Green Room.

Following their Green Room debut for Brilliant Corners Festival 22, Saru Sounds AKA old school friends Philip Arneill and Michael Staley return to play an eclectic mix of old meets new, taking you on a tangential journey of  spiritual jazz, deep grooves and soulful vibes in this four-month residency.
