TWO Lurgan DJs will be part of Ireland’s only dance music festival this Sunday as MickMag & JustBob take to the decks for Joy Festival at Fusion Complex in Drogheda.

The duo, known better to their family and friends as Michael Magennis and Joe Marley, join a host of international spinners at the showpiece event, which boasts five arenas, sun terraces, barbecue, and over 60 other DJs!

MickMag & JustBob line-up beside superstars of electronic dance music including Andy Moor, Sean Tyas, D-Block & S-te-fan, Alex Kidd, Kutski, Scot Project, Argy, Alex Morph and many others.

Return buses to the festival are running from across the country, with an official Joy bus leaving from outside Lurgan train station at 3pm (priced at £15 return – contact ‘Joy Festival Ireland’ on Facebook to book your seats).

MickMag & JustBob joined forces as a DJing and production twosome just six months ago, after years of DJing individually.

They have already had two tracks signed to Dutch record label Big & Dirty (Be Yourself Music) and have just completed their latest production “Keep On Rocking”.

They recently performed alongside Dutch DJs W&W at Dirty Digital in Belfast and are winning fans across the province their unique and energetic sets.

The opportunity to play at Joy Festival is another stepping stone on the path to success for the highly talented artists.

MickMag & JustBob said: “Getting to play amongst some of the biggest names in EDM [electronic dance music], and to a crowd that know their dance music, really means the world to us.

“People can expect to hear us play a lot of our own mash-ups and bootlegs, as well as our own tracks and some dirty progressive house beats.

“We put our heart and soul into our sets every time and try to make them stand out from the rest, in the tracks we choose and the energy we try to bring to the decks.”

Tickets are available via Ticketmaster outlets.
