The first 2 gigs (Sep 18/19) take place at Kilkenny’s stunning Ballykeeffe Amphitheatre. It's a beautiful, volunteer-run community venue set into an abandoned quarry with a man made limestone cliff (as backdrop to the stage), surrounded by green fields, rolling hills & flanked by a beautiful woodland nature reserve. It doesn't get much more dreamy than this lads!

If you're based in Dublin, fear not, return buses will have you whipped there and back before you can say "two-oat-flat-whites-please".

And if you're based locally, tickets are slightly cheaper.

These lineups aim to reflect the vibrant and beautiful folk & traditional music revival currently well underway here in Ireland & the UK, with some electronic, experimental & rock elements in the mix too.

Free parking is provided in the field across the way. If travelling by car pls consider carpooling. This is an outdoor event so dress accordingly & feel free to bring a wee cushion for your butt.

There won’t be a bar but you’re very welcome to BYOB!
