Kneecap

Since they emerged from West Belfast, KNEECAP have become a cultural phenomenon.

Their three members, Móglaí Bap, Mo Chara, and DJ Provaí, have created their own genre of Irish punk rap, blending the Irish and English language with electrifying energy, selling out tours across the US, UK, and Ireland.

Crashing into the consciousness with the release of, C.E.A.R.T.A., Kneecap is currently preparing for the release of their debut album in 2024, produced by Toddla T (Stormzy, Aitch), with features from members of the Mercury Music Prize-nominated bands Lankum and Fontaines D.C.

2024 will also see the premiere of the Kneecap feature film based on their ascent, starring the group themselves, and two-time Academy Award-nominated Michael Fassbender.

2023 saw Kneecap performing to 10,000 fans at a massive outdoor hometown gig in Belfast, a sold-out coast-to-coast US tour, and European appearances at Airwaves in Iceland, and Pitchfork Music Festival Paris.

Heralded by The New York Times, the LA Times, Dazed, Vice, Rolling Stone Magazine, i-D, The Guardian, and others, Kneecap’s irreverent, complex, and potent lyrics speak to a time of political upheaval, youthful rebellion and discontent, and a renewed urge to party.

Kneecap is a movement, one about upending preconceptions of language and place, and reimagining how rap and raving act as creative and cultural forces, rooted in community, craic, and defiance.
