Jon Hopkins coming to the Big Top for GIAF 2020

Jon Hopkins, known for his hypnotising and meditative style of electronic music, is the second act to be confirmed for the Big Top at GIAF 2020.

Celebrated for finely crafted, contemplative electronic music exploring different psychological states Jon Hopkins will be making his Heineken Big Top debut on the second weekend of next year’s Galway International Arts Festival.

The English artist and producer has released five critically acclaimed studio albums as well as the soundtrack for the 2010 film Monsters.

His 2013 album, Immunity, was nominated for the Mercury Prize and his most recent release, Singularity, received a Grammy nomination for Dance/Electronic Album in 2018.

His diverse body of work also includes collaborations with Brian Eno, King Creosote, David Holmes and Coldplay.

Hopkins’ Galway appearance is part of his Polarity Tour in the Spring of 2020, along with a performance at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin which has already sold out.


Tickets for Hopkins will cost €39.50 and will be available for purchase at www.giaf.ie from Friday 22 November at 9am.

Galway International Arts Festival 2020 takes place 13-26 July 2020, with a sold-out show by rock legends Pixies already announced for 17 July.

More acts are set to be announced ahead of the full programme release in May 2020. Stay tuned for more announcements before Christmas.
