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. In February 2013 she began presenting The Saturday Weekender on Phantom 105.2 which earned her a nomination for Best Newcomer at the PPI Radio Awards. 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) and the evening show on TXFM Dublin which gained her a nomination for Best Radio DJ at last year’s PPI Radio Awards.
In the summer of 2015 Kelly-Anne got to share the stage with her music heroes Chic when she supported them at Iveagh Gardens, a dream come true for someone who has spent much of their life being dedicated to disco.
