are an explosive live afrobeat collective who have been putting on incredible shows for us since we started Woweembeem in March 2017 (we're 2 yrs old now!). For this Paddy's Day gig they've confirmed a special one-off 2 hr set. This is gonna blow the roof off The Button Factory lads. We can't think of a better headline act for this one! 

are four musicians who first met playing gospel in their local church. The quartet of Hudis, Glory, Solo The Astronaut and Grvz bring a rare sense of passion and fun to modern live RnB, mixing classic soul, modern hip-hop and the joyous energy of their gospel roots. Basically the lads are absolutely claaaass.

is a pioneering DJ, Photographer and Filmmaker. Active on TV & radio since the '90s, Donal has more recently been running the excellent series of Backstory parties at Jigsaw. We're delighted to have him see out the last hour of music on the BF stage

is a collective party based in Dublin, bringing groovy and rhythmic songs from all over the globe. From hip hop to samba, afrobeat to afro-house, funk to kuduro, disco to house. All blended with a touch of Brazil and Africa.

is Jamal Sul, Irish / Saudi DJ & producer. He performed his debut live set at Woweembeem in November & has just released a banging edit on DAR DISKU. He also just did a guestmix for Nabihah Iqbal on BBC's Asian Network show. All round top boyo!

is a musical project spilling out of the minds of those who love too groove for those who love to move.

...plus some more bits to announce!

Lads Ireland is amazing. We have so many incredible musicians, bands & DJs here in Dublin now, and all over the country. What better way to celebrate St. Patrick than a 12-piece afrobeat band blowing your head clean off. And Super Silly on the warmup vibes. Then some Brazilian, African & Arabic jams from the lads JamalLouis & Pablo. Solid ..as a rock! 

Woweembeem: occasional parties and mixtapes promoting music from Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean / French West Indies, South America and all corners of the globe. Celebratory sounds to nourish the soul. 

All nations under a groove.

Telephones // BILLY SCURRY + Joma


Anybody who's had the vaguest interest in dancing or eating in Dublin in the past two decades will know Billy Scurry.

Equally at home playing techno, hip-hop or cooking meatballs, the man has been a huge inspiration to us and many others and it's high time we had him into Telephones.

Support from Joma

Telephones w/ TR-ONE


10:30pm - Late at Yamamori Tengu

Last month was ace! We went back to out roots, local DJs spinning their favourite jams in a dark club with decent sound..... and to finish off the formula a big crowd turned up and made a killer vibe on the dancefloor. Yahoo! THANKS! 

So it's the same plan this time round. ALSO ALSO we have one of our all-time favourite DJs (Irish, or otherwise) Eddie aka TR One driving up from Carlow to dazzle us with his amazing selection of records and super-human mixing skills. Very hyped for this lads, there's never been a dull TR-One gig. It's just not possible.

Red Bull Music Academy & Telephones present: HUNEE, ANTAL, PROJECT PABLO


Telephones & Red Bull Music Academy presents:

Hunee  /  Antal     
Project Pablo / Dreamcycles  
Papa Lou / Morro 16 (Live) / Woweembeem DJs

9pm – 3am, Saturday October 14th 2017

Yamamori Tengu
37 Strand Street, Dublin

Booking 'famous international acts' is generally the exception to the rule at Telephones. However, there are certain DJs, collectives, and music-nuts scattered across the globe who operate on a similar wave-length; through the music they play, the record shops they run, and simply the lives they live – unerringly dedicated to their craft – that they not only fit the Telephones bill, but are something of Telephones heroes, or even idols (blush emoji!). 

Hunee & Antal are two such examples. With soaring profiles, they have spent the last year headlining large clubs or festival main stages so, alongside our event partners Red Bull Music Academy, we are super happy to be able to present them at Dublin's favorite intimate dance club - our home - Yamamori Tengu, this October 14th.

Through 20 years in business, Antal Heitlager and his Amsterdam based Rush Hour record shop & label has created trends (in the best possible way), reissued countless long-lost musical gems on vinyl, and ultimately helped define the current landscape of modern club culture that many DJs subscribe to today. His influence cannot be overestimated. 

Hunee has, and continues to have, just as much of an influence on today's club scene. He's been enriching the lives of club & festival goers with astonishing consistency and frequency for 10+ years, with the last 2 seeing him take it up a notch by headlining every club & festival worth it's salt – most notably this year's top-dog-of-them-all Dekmantel Festival – with a closing set alongside his long time friend and DJ partner Antal. These guys are as good as it gets when it comes to eclectic, versatile DJ sets taking in the history of dance music, seamlessly criss-crossing between disco, afro, soul, jazz, house, techno et al for days. 

In Room 2, Pear & Flipside host Montreal's Project Pablo, aka Patrick Holland, with support from Irish RBMA 2016 alumni Dreamcycles.  Room 3 will be hosted by Woweembeem DJs with a live performance from samba band Morro 16.

Full lineup:

The last schoolyard party of our 2017 summer series!

For the unacquainted; we take over a schoolyard in Dublin 8 and install a big ol' soundsystem, DJs play all day, the sun shines, there's food, it's BYOB (ie affordable), your pals are there, our pals are there, everyone is sound, pets are allowed, kids are allowed until maybe 7ish, it's a party for people who like listening to music and dancing to it.

Actually it's 2 parties. When things come to an end at 9pm we head down to Tengu to dance some more. Musically you can expect a broad range of stuff, from soul / funk / disco / afro / brazil / reggae / hip hop / house music et al. We're music obsessives and collecting music to play at parties is what we do, all day every day.

Nasty Women Dublin — Nasty Women Dublin is a fundraising exhibition that celebrates the strength and diversity of art by female artists in Ireland, and which acts to promote the cause of women's rights, in particular reproductive rights and The Campaign to Repeal the 8th Amendment.
