Not to be confused with Detroit’s DEMF festival, over and done with for the year, DEAF electronic music festival is revving up for its seventh year running. The Dublin, Ireland-based party, whose 2008 edition takes place October 22 – 27, is an event independently run by Irish lable D1, and features music, art, and film into one place for five days.

Besides a film festival and art gallery, this year’s festival also sees a music lineup that features the likes of M83, Juan Atkins, Luke Vibert, Fuck Buttons, Trans Am, and many other artists. Additionally, festival organizers are compiling a 32-track double CD that will showcase up-and-coming electronic music artists from Ireland, which will be inserted into the festivals program. Meanwhile, check the lineup info below for further artists involved with the festivities.
