Check out our Groovy Tuesday Video
Groovy Tuesday Presents is an all new concept brought to you by the University of Galway Students' Union and Societies as part of SOS on Tuesday 14th February 2023
With a stacked line-up of Irish and International talent, two massive stages, Funktion one sound system and a light show from the island's most respected production crew it is shaping up to be the biggest event in Galway this year.
Two stages will be in operation on the night with a collection of cool and cozy chill out areas throughout Áras na Mac Léinn and Sult. This is to be the first time ever the Bailey Allen hall is to be used in this capacity.
Our headliner on the night will be Cody Currie. The London born producer and DJ is a powerhouse of the house and disco world. His unique sound has been sought out by some of the biggest names in the business releasing tracks with the likes of G-Towns beloved KETTAMA, Eliza Rose and Dan Shake. In recent years Cody has become a key member of the Toy Tonics family playing sets at their Toy Tonic Jams all over the world. He has also had notable releases with the New York label Razor-N-Tape. It is an honour to have him on board for our very first Groovy Tuesday presents.
He will be supported by Shee. One of the best Ireland has to offer when it comes to funky, feel good soulful house music. With millions of plays on Spotify and legendary sets at the Casa Bacardi stage of Electric Picnic the Kerry man is undoubtedly set to deliver an amazing performance on the night.
Our opening set will be provided by Galway's favorite disco merchants Groovy Tuesdays DJ's
