A Day in the Sun is a full day of live experimental/electronic music and DJs, taking place in the grounds of an ancient monastery.

The team behind the popular Emotion Wave nights collaborate with the WIRRAL NEW MUSIC COLLECTIVE to put on A DAY IN THE SUN; a unique, daytime electronic music event at the wonderfully quaint Birkenhead Priory. The iconic priory dates all the way back to 1150, and with its recent restoration has become a Grade 1 listed building, proudly affirming its status as a building for the past, present and future of Merseyside. It seems an interesting and attracting fit then, for one day only the priory is to indulge in the modern-day art of experimental electronica. If Priory?s and Electronic music are still struggling to correlate in your head, that?s Emotion Wave?s direct intention. The event is designed to take live music to a whole new modern dimension; playing on the surreal, extra-sensory experience of non-standard gig surroundings, and breaking down the boundaries between musician, audience and performer.

On the diverse and progressive lineup there will be TVAM - currently enjoying A-list airtime on BBC 6music, Reedale Rise, S>>D, MT Hall, Isocore, Lo Five, Field Lines Cartographer and Bye Louis ? covering ambient soundscapes, electro, horror soundtracks, acid techno and IDM ? plus DJ sets from Breakwave, Gated Canal Community, Jupiter Room and a unique cassette tape jungle/gabba set from Concrete Tapes.

Refreshments will be provided by Black Lodge Brewery and Stevie?s Wood-fired Pizza.
