In recent years Kelly-Anne Byrne has earned a reputation as one of the finest selectors on the airwaves and one of Ireland’s top djs. Her DJ career began 15 years ago when a large vinyl collection and a love of soul and disco prompted her to drop a mixtape into The Dice Bar. From that point on she has been entertaining crowds from all over the country with top slots at all of Ireland’s festivals including Electric Picnic, Longitude, Indiependence, Sea Sessions, Metropolis and Forbidden Fruit. Kelly-Anne is the promoter/resident DJ at monthly night BURNIN’ UP in The Grand Social and also appears regularly at Mother Club and The Workman’s. She currently presents ‘The Beat Goes On’ on Saturdays and Sundays on Today FM (named ‘the best show on Irish radio’ by Jim Carroll in The Ticket).
A comrade of Optimo since her days with Dublin’s ‘Mother’ Crew – Kelly will join Optimo20 at Midnight Circus with her unmistakable disco magic.
