Irish Moss Records Main Stage Takeover - Life Festival 2014

EZ All!

Sun has been shining over Dublin city and inviting we cold and rainsoaked irie-Irish to the warm-ish season... and what better way to celebrate than with an explosive two-day mainstage takeover at the country's premiere electronic music festival, the now firmly established starting gun for Summer fun, "Life Festival"!

The Irish Moss Records Crew, along with some very special guests from home and abroad, will be the festival's wake up call each day, as we ease the high octane revelers back to vertical, with roots reggae vibes, steppin' up to hip hop and bass culture sounds to rock the main arena through the afternoon. Special international guest MC's 2Nice and Mr.Williams will join IMR regular Mystro (aka Mysdiggi), while Cian Finn represents conscious Ireland on the mic, and hip-hop home-front originator Rí-Rá promises to get the crowd jumpin', with an extra special appearance also planned with Dirty Dubsters. The institution that is the Babylonia Live partnership of Lex Woo and MC Littletree will be in attendance, with their storming performance at Rub-A-Dublin to follow up, and one this blogger is particularly looking forward to catching this time around. Speaking of one's self, "One's-Self" will also be there from midday, serving up the musical equivalent of coconut rice with a shot of rum...the perfect festival breakfast! We are also very excited to announce that long time bred/fam Mista Johnny Pluse will be taking his Stormtroopers Of Love all the way from the Deatstar of the heart, to annihilate da hate (and make the party great!) with a brand new live show which features the turntable/mic skills of DJ DOG, and the dope-est kick-snare-hats from drummer John Lynch, while Pluse dubs the riddims. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, a humongous weekend doth beckon, prepare to be entertained....
