The one-day Music Minds festival will feature workshops, debates, films and live performances.

The Music Minds 2019 festival is a multi-genre music festival taking place on 19 January 2019 at Doolin Hotel in Co. Clare. 

The festival will explore the music industry through the lens of emerging and advanced technology through workshops, debates and live performances.

O’Reilly is best known for his work with the online series This Ain’t No Disco as well as music videos for artists such as Lisa Hannigan, Ye Vagabonds, Glen Hansard and Lisa O’Neill. As part of the workshop he will show a selection of his current work, and discuss his inspiration and techniques, his choice of subject, and his equipment. 

Other topics covered in workshops at the festival will include live visuals with Mark Hearne, electronic percussion with Rónán Ó Snódaigh and pedal boards with Alec Browne and Simon O’Reilly. O’Reilly, Browne and Ó Snódaigh will also be joined by Miltown Malbay musician Jon O’Connell to create a live score to the 1934 film Man of Aran.
