Tipperary native Zack Coughlan aka DJ Blk is taking the Techno world by storm. The DJ who grew up in Emly village, and who played the Electric Picnic a few weeks ago, has announced a solo gig in
the 3Arena and it is already sold out. The announcement makes him the first solo Irish DJ ever to headline at the venue, an impressive feat for the Tipperary native.
DJ Blk’s mother, Helega Walsh is from St Michael’s Avenue in Tipperary Town, and she must be very proud of her superstar son who has over 270,000 active listeners on Spotify, 136k followers on TikTok and amassed a massive 28+ million plays across his tracks.
