[ Life Festival Voted #8 in RA's Top 10 Festivals Taking Place in May '13. ]

08. Life Festival
May 24 - May 26
Belvedere House & Gardens
Mullingar, Ireland

Life Festival takes place at one of Europe's most unique venues: Belvedere House, a sprawling manor constructed in 1740. Its gardens have hosted dozens of DJs and live acts in the past few years, and in late May will welcome Seth Troxler, Amon Tobin, Modeselektor and a slew of other artists for Life Festival's eighth edition. Most of the other acts appearing hail from the UK and Ireland, with Karenn, Floating Points and Sunil Sharpe all confirmed. International names include Kerri Chandler, Bulgarian live act KiNK and the big room house of Berlin duo Booka Shade.

RA pick: Pump your fist to Modeselektor's live show.

Delighted that Life Festival has finally made it onto the international map. I first visited this festival in 2010, and am still reeling over great and hilarious memories from that weekend. Friends of mine have been going since the early days, which used to take place in Gort, Co. Galway, and while it has definitely changed from the wonderful hippy/psytrance vibe of the old days,  this years line-up does anything but disappoint.

And now i'm even more disgusted that i'll be missing it.... *Sigh
I'll just have to live vicariously so. You can read the full RA: Poll here;
