Following sold out shows at Cork Opera House in 2018, one of Ireland’s most successful DJs ever, Jenny Greene, returns to Leeside to play a late night headline show during the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival. Jenny will be joined by special guests on the night and Cork's own cutting edge electronic and visual mavericks, Generic People.
Known to audiences for her much-acclaimed work on RTE 2FM, Jenny’s live sets have enthralled dance lovers across the country over the years, and in recent times brought a whole new show to Irish festivals by teaming up with the RTE Concert Orchestra to breath a new live life into some of the biggest dance classics of our times.
Jenny started DJing very early in life, getting her first set of decks at the age of 12. She learned her craft on vinyl and hanging 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. Then at 17 Jenny was given 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 earned herself a place in The Guinness Book Of Records when she broke The World Record for The Longest DJ Set playing continuously for 75 hours. Jenny made the move to the national broadcaster in 2007. She arguably presents one of the biggest dance shows in the country The Electric Disco on Saturday nights from 8-10pm on RTE 2FM
In 2009 Jenny released the hugely successful ‘The Electric Disco’ compilation album through EMI records, an unmixed double CD of Jenny’s Electric Disco favourites from her personal record collection. 'The Electric Disco’ has gone on to pick up awards including the 'Best Radio Show’ award at the Irish Dance Music Awards in Dublin.
Following a short break, Jenny is back on air at 2FM with a brand new show starting this June.
