    Thursday 22nd – Saturday 31st October 2009

    DEAF returns with our most extensive programme to date, including films, gallery installations,
    workshops, live gigs and club events. We ask you to glance through the programme at the more than 150 events on offer, confident that you’ll find something in there for you. Some of the highlights we recommend are the opening event with Soap & Skin (18 year old Austrian soloist performs with electronics & grand piano), Roger Doyles 60th Birthday celebration event in the Project plus a 10 day installation in the Contemporary Music Centre, The Judith Mok Hamsa Ensemble performing Serphardic music, the Quiet Music Ensemble & David Toop, Crash Ensemble perform Reich & Glass, Mountains in the Douglas Hyde Gallery also featuring Karl Burke, Peter Maybury & Mark Garry, plus club sets from Beardyman, Dam Funk, Modeselecktor, Goldie, Planetary Assault Systems, Surgeon, Cristian Vobel and our flagship event for 2009 Warp @ DEAF with Plaid, Clarke, Bibio & Tim Exile.
    The sheer number and diversity of events on offer at DEAF this year certainly gives us cause for celebration. It’s hugely encouraging to see so many artists, promoters and collectives taking complete ownership of the events they’re running for DEAF, with an all-round dedication and professionalism that is, in our experience, unprecedented and what truly feels like Dublin’s festival! A sold-out fundraising event in August – plus the simple fact that our programme has almost tripled in size since 2008 – offers further testament to the positive spirit in which DEAF is taking place in 2009. And for that, we extend a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to all those participating.

    DEAF is supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
    TICKETS: the official DEAF box office will operate from Road Records (Fade Street) and City Discs (Temple Bar), plus online at

    DEAF CD produced in partnership with Culture Ireland.
    This year’s double CD presents 40 pieces (shortlisted from over 400 submissions), and will be available free of charge at various events throughout the festival.
