Now that our beloved Irish towns and cities are slowly but cautiously enjoying the benefits of eased COVID restrictions, we figured it was our duty to get people back into the mindset of festivities.
Festivals have always been a great coming-together event, and Ireland has no shortage of those throughout the year every year!
However, we would like to bring you a brief rundown of our favourite Irish Festivals to look forward to during the coming months
- Electric Picnic (3rd Sep – 5th Sep.)
Possibly the biggest event on this list, Electric Picnic has been Ireland’s top festival to look out for, and for good reason. Year after year, this festival has managed to attract very memorable headlining artists.
With the original 2021 lineup including Snow Patrol, Foals, Chemical Brothers, Rage Against The Machine, Lewis Capaldi, Skepta, James Vincent McMorrow, and Denzel Curry, it’s no doubt that this year’s festival is planned to be a banger. But with current COVID restrictions around the island, that remains to be seen.
2. Longitude, (2nd July -4th July).
Promoters MCD has announced first round of acts for the Marlay Park, Dublin, event, with headliners Kendrick Lamar, Tyler, The Creator and A$AP Rocky, and tickets on sale.
Again, whether the current restrictions would allow it still remain to be seen.
3. Body & Soul (TBA – September 2021)
A staple for Irish festival goers, is a truly independent festival. This year, the team plans a series of small, intimate events on summer weekends in Ballinlough Castle grounds.
This festival, famous for its curated live music, wellness, long table banquets, spoken word, comedy and art might operate this year at very limited capacity.
4. Galway Film Fleadh ( 6th July – 11th July).
A weeklong film appreciation festival in Galway, this festival remains a platform for the boldest new filmmakers to showcase their art. The Fleadh is very much a film lovers’ festival and attracts directors, actors, cinematographers and artists of all generations and cultural backgrounds. The Fleadh’s diverse audience is made up of the general cinema going public, film buffs, industry professionals and invited guests.
So there you have it guys.
