Introducing Bitch Thieves, a night of surprises, gift bags, musical magic and madness.

“Dublin-based Sleep Thieves will definitely entice you to stay up late, whether to dance or drift off in a daydream, but you won’t hold that against them.” – The Guardian
Sleep Thieves, are Sorcha Brennan (vocals, synths), Wayne Fahy (Vocals, synths, bass, programming), and Keith Byrne (synths, guitar, bass, programming). Their full length album, You Want the Night, was released in 2014 (via Minty Fresh Records US). Their music is haunting, dreamy and cinematic, it opens up and rolls in like a storm, enticing and caressing the listener. Recently Sleep Thieves have played Electric Picnic, Culture Collide in San Francisco and LA, the FMC tour around Ireland, Forbidden Fruit, Body and Soul, CMJ Music Marathon, New York, and in London, Paris and Italy. With over 4 million plays on Spotify and over 75,000 unique listeners a month the band have a worldwide audience.
“It’s loud, beefy, played with a freedom, energy and enthusiasm that is totally engaging and jolts you into a mode where the tried and tested formula of two guitars, bass and drums feels exciting all over again.”- Una Mullaly, The Irish Times
