JON HOPKINS (Live)
Saturday 25 July
Heineken Big Top
On sale Friday at 9am
 
Galway International Arts Festival and Róisín Dubh are delighted to announce that Jon Hopkins will bring his hypnotising and meditative flavour of electronic music to the Heineken Big Top on Saturday 25 July 2020.
 
 
Jon Hopkins is known for finely crafted, contemplative electronic music exploring different psychological states, and the connectivity of the mind and nature. His ‘powerfully emotive’ and genre-bending sound flows seamlessly from techno to choral, acoustic piano to psychedelic. As Billboard put it, Jon Hopkins ‘meticulously constructs lush, downtempo arrangements, blending digital beats and soothing ambience.’
The English artist and producer has released five critically acclaimed studio albums as well as the soundtrack for the 2010 film Monsters. His 2013 album, Immunity, was nominated for the Mercury Prize and his most recent release, Singularity, received a Grammy nomination for Dance/Electronic Album in 2018. His diverse body of work also includes collaborations with Brian Eno, King Creosote, David Holmes and Coldplay.
 
The artist’s Heineken Big Top debut is part of his spring 2020 Polarity tour, which includes an already-sold out performance at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin. If you have been one of the lucky ones to catch the electronic producer live, you’ll know a Jon Hopkins gig makes for one of the finest live experiences.
 
The second weekend of Galway International Arts Festival has featured a night of pulsating electronic music in recent years, with standout performances including ORBITAL in 2019 and Caribou in 2018. Jon Hopkins’ concert promises to deliver the same and GIAF audiences can look forward to tracks like ‘Emerald and Stone’, ‘Emerald Rush’, and ‘Everything Connected’.
Jon Hopkins will play the Heineken Big Top on Saturday 25th July 2020. Tickets, priced at €39.50, will be available for purchase at www.giaf.ie from Friday 22 November at 9am.
 
Galway International Arts Festival would like to acknowledge the support of its principal funding agencies the Arts Council and Fáilte Ireland, its Drinks Partner Heineken® and Education Partner NUI Galway.
