OVER 50 MORE ACTS
KnockanStockan Music & Arts Festival will be rocking the Blessington shores for its 10th year on Friday 22nd to 24th of July. Celebrating in spectacular style over 3 days, on 7 stages and over 150 acts with special honorary guests remaining anonymous. With their festival launch on June 15th in The Back Loft, D2, KnockanStockan have yet to announce an array of DJ’s, Performance Art and Fringe programming before the event.
“Delighted with this one. It wasn’t easy though. A lot of amazing acts doing weird and wonderful things across the county, a lot of people really pushing the boundaries in every genre. Some of the music out there is just unreal and we’ve packed in as much as we could. Hope you all enjoy, gonna be a serious weekend!” Graham Sharpe, Music Director, KnockanStockan
KnockanStockan is once again a BYOB affair but this year they are delighted to welcome O’Hara’s Brewery on board. They will be supplying festival revellers with their delicious range of craft beers and ciders ranging from Irish Pale Ale to the Hop Adventure Series. O’Hara’s Brewery, also known as Carlow Brewing Company is an independent, family-owned business and one of the pioneers of Irish craft brewing.
“We are really excited to have such a like minded brand on board who recognise our own independent and liberal ethos behind the festival.“ says Bettine McMahon, one of the Festival Directors
Have no fear festival revellers, it’s still access all areas for your own beverages and cans but remember glass bottles won’t be permitted on site.
The Burrow Stage | Faerie Field | DimeStore Circus Tent | Wishbone Stage | The Animal Barn | Caravan Extravaganza | Riddim Shack
As always there will be a collection of curious creative creatures performing and roaming around the festival as part of the performance art programme that seeks to ignite your imagination.
Roll on #KnockanStockan!!
