The organisers of the Dublin Electronic Arts Festival have announced that this year’s event was the last. After eight years of showcasing electronic arts, the independently-run festival wrapped up for good in October.
“We’ve decided to finish up on a high note and move on to other projects that we’re anxious to get off the ground – so it’s certainly not the last you’ve heard of us,” says an official statement.
The organisers say that their reasoning will be made clear soon: “As so many people have invested so much time and effort to help us over the years, and so many of you have supported us by coming along to the events, we’ll be putting out a more detailed statement in a couple of weeks as to why we’ve decided to stop DEAF.”
The final show of the festival was no disappointment. Detroit electro bass pioneers Aux 88, Jerome Hill, Rob Hall, Mark Broom and Toirse closed out the event with dynamic performances in the new Good Bits venue.
