Irvine Welsh in Conversation with Carl Loben
15:15 - 16:00
DeLaMar Theater (D4 Panel Room) | Marnixstraat 402, Amsterdam
ADE is delighted to announce that Irvine Welsh is confirmed as a Creative Keynote interviewee this year. The author of legendary tale of Edingburgh low-life Trainspotting has also written two collections of short stories about his years as a raver at the beginning of the house scene, 1994’s The Acid House and Ecstasy: Three Tales of Chemical Romance, as well a further nine novels to date.
His interviewer at ADE, Carl Loben, is a long-time friend of the author: “It's going to be fascinating to hear some insights about his breakthrough novel Trainspotting and his other books, his personal experiences in the early days of the rave scene, how electronic music culture has informed his writing, and how he still keeps up with our scene to this day. As well as one of my favourite writers and a personal hero, Irvine is also a friend, so I think I'll be able to get an amazing interview out of him. Can't wait!"
