David Holmes

David Holmes pays tribute to his friend, the legendary and dearly missed DJ Andrew Weatherall. Andrew was booked to play Red Rooster 2020 after blowing the roof off the Howlin’ Woods Tent in 2019. Heartbreakingly Andrew passed away in February last year and David agreed to play a special DJ set in honour of his great friend in the Howlin’ Woods tent on Saturday night.

David Holmes is an electronic musician and composer. Born in Northern Ireland, Holmes worked as a DJ before releasing several solo albums that have incorporated elements of trip hop, big beat, electronica and rock.
