Hodor! Hodor hodor hodor hodor hodor, hodor hodor! If you didn’t understand a word of what I just said, don’t worry! I’ll translate: Kristian Nairn is on fire right now!
The Irishman got his first big role in the hit TV show “Game of Thrones”, representing the role of fan favorite character Hodor. But while his cast mates are busy finishing season 8 and keeping it a secret, Kristian Nairn, whose character **SPOILER ALERT** died a few seasons ago in the show’s timeline, has been playing gigs around the world as a DJ.
Now, I know what you might think: that he is just another stupid celebrity DJ, cashing in on the current trend that “everyone is a DJ nowadays”. But you’d be wrong. Nairn used to be the resident DJ of a gay nightclub in Belfast called Kremlin. But since his breakthrough performance as everyone’s favourite lovable buffoon , his DJing career exploded and he has since performed at several conventions, opened up for various artists, and he even toured the U.S in 2014 with his “Rave of Thrones” tour. Safe to say, he’s a pretty busy guy.
In a recent post on his social media pages, Nairn revealed the dates of his shows for these upcoming weeks, and some of them are huge: on the 28th of July, Nairn will perform at Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s Smash The House stage on Tomorrrowland (Yes, you read that right, Hodor will perform at Tomorrowland!) and on July 31st and August 14th, he will play at the Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s Garden of Madness event in Ibiza (noticing a trend here?).
You can listen to his latest mix below on his Soundcloud page, and you can buy tickets for his Ibiza shows here. At least he’s a better MC than his character….
