Electric disco queen Jenny Greene will return to Galway this June Bank holiday to play the Fever Pitch Music Festival, which is taking place at Galway Airport.

One of Ireland’s most successful DJs, Jenny Greene presented the biggest dance show on Irish radio every Saturday night on RTE 2fm.

She started DJing as a child, getting her first set of decks at the age of 12 and learning how to mix on vinyl as a teen, when she hung around dance pirate radio station Pulse FM after school. Her first big break came at the age of 15 as the warm-up DJ in the Palace Nightclub in Dublin on Saturday nights.

By the age of 17 Jenny had her own weekly dance column in The Sunday World newspaper. That same year she became the youngest DJ on radio, landing the Weekend Breakfast Show on Dublin station FM104.

In 2003 Jenny broke The World Record for The Longest DJ Set, by playing continuously for 75 hours. That feat won her a place in the Guinness Book Of Records.
