Celtronic firmly cemented its reputation as Ireland’s leading electronic music festival with a series of sell-out shows across Derry last weekend.

The twelfth annual edition of the festival was a resounding success with electronic music fans from across Ireland and further afield converging on the city centre, adding to the electric atmosphere that was already in the city with the Clipper homecoming celebrations and NAFCO festival.

Over five days last week, some of the biggest names in electronic music entertained locals and visitors alike.

A spokesperson for Celtronic said: “For five days and nights, Derry felt like the centre of the electronic music world. We would like to thank all the acts that played at this year’s festival and the large crowds who attended and made this year’s event so special.

“All the international acts commented on the atmosphere and the receptiveness of the crowds.

“We would also like to thank our sponsors and supporters including Culture Company 2013, Heineken, BBC Radio Ulster, The Mirror, Electric Mainline, The Nerve Centre, Masons Bar, Christ Church and St Columb’s Hall. Plans are already underway for Celtronic 2013.

“At this stage, all we can say is that it’s going to be even better than this year’s event.”
