IWD 2020 Weekender:

Making Waves

with special guest Gadget and the cloud

Sat. 7th March | 2 - 8pm

It’s a Spilt Milk Fest takeover at Gallery Cafe for International Women’s Day. For IWD 2020 we are celebrating women with two events which will also launch our fundraising activities for the 2020 edition of the festival.

Making Waves is now a firm fixture in the Sligo gig calendar, the annual DJ party started by Art For Blind Records is on it’s fourth installment! An all-female line-up of selectors and DJ’s drawn from Sligo and the North West’s music community will soundtrack your Saturday afternoon and early evening. For this year’s edition we are thrilled to welcome producer and DJ Gadget and the Cloud to close with a headlining set. We also welcome new and returning faces to the decks including Natalia Beylis (Woven Skull), Ruth Clinton (Landless), Mabel Chah, Dina Coughlan, Kim Kennedy (Sukie Zines), Edel Doherty (Art for Blind/Spilt Milk Fest), ♡era and Sandy P. 

This event is free but donations most gratefully welcome.
