While many Irish clubbers will be packing their bags and brushing up on their Catalan ahead of next week’s Sonar festival in Barcelona, others will be relishing the return of the Celtronic festival to Derry later this month.

Celtronic has slowly grown in size and stature over the last six years. This year, it will run in various venues throughout the city from June 27th to July 1st, with headliners including Erol Alkan (right), Radioactive Man, Jerry Dammers (the Specials man will be returning to the north-east with the most rocking reggae collection around) and new house hero Jimpster from The Bays.

There’s also a wealth of local northern talent including The Japanese Popstars, Alloy Mental’s Phil Kieran and the Sirocco Allstars. Best of all, a festival pass costs just £25. More information from myspace.com/celtronic2007
