Right up there with our favourite small Irish festivals, Distorted Perspectives – easily the country’s leading bastion of contemporary sound, psych and avant-garde art – will return to Letterkenny’s Regional Culture Centre across April 28-29.

Now entering its fourth year, it will host Will Carruthers (Spacemen 3/Spiritualized), K-X-PHannah Peel (pictured), exmagician, Robocobra Quartet, SlowPlaceLikeHome, Tuath, Scenery, The Gatefolds, Aul Boy, The Barbiturates and Free Acid Sunshine across the two days.

As well as said sonic feast, there will be a host of DJ sets from the likes of Turn It On, Chromaticism and Art for Blind records, as well as free screen-printing workshops courtesy of Pulled, art showcases by Gum Collective and Will Carruthers, as well as vinyl/CDs for sale.

Go here for more info and to buy tickets, which are very reasonably priced at €12 per day or €20 for a weekend pass.
