As requested by some of our listeners who couldn’t hear it all on the show…
Introducing: Planetlove Summer Session – Part One!
Irish clubbing brand Planetlove has joined forces with the 2FM Sessions Tour to create Ireland’s first homegrown dance music festival Planetlove Summer Session.*
The event, which is being held in association with 2FM and the Daily Star, will take place on Saturday 8th September at the Fairyhouse Racecourse, Rathoath, Co Meath.
Its Northern Irish counterpart, Planetlove, in association with BBC Radio One, will be held that same day at Shane’s Castle, County Antrim – making music-scene history here in Ireland as the first festival to take place simultaneously both sides of the border!
The world’s most famous and acclaimed dance music stars will perform over 12 hours as part of a 70-strong line up on 6 stages at the *Planetlove Summer Session.
Many of these artistes will play both festivals and will be transported between Rathoath and Antrim by a fleet of helicopters.
Ireland’s electronic music scene has never witnessed anything like it!
And what a line up is in store!
Among the stars lined up for the Fairyhouse show is world favourite DJ Armin Van Buuren, No.1 chart topper and dance music’s man of the moment Fedde Le Grand (‘Put Your Hands Up for Detroit’), techno ace Ben Simms, Big Brother winner Kate Lawler, Lisa Lashes, old skool heroes N-Joi (‘Anthem’) and Dutch DJing legend Ferry Corsten and many others/
2FM will be broadcasting live across Ireland from the event, and across the world via internet, while up North, BBC Radio One will be broadcasting live across the UK, and again – via internet – the world from Planetlove north.
