Our festival is located at the Arranmore Holiday Village about 1km from the ferry port.
We are a festival collective run on a not for profit basis, and in order to guarantee that the festival runs we need to ensure that the minimum amount of money required is raised, so we are running a Fund it campaign to pay for the infrastructure we need to run the festival including marquee hire, public liability insurance, security, first aid provision, sound and lighting provision, generators, advertising and so on.
You can pledge to buy a variety of packages through the Fund it page, with payment by bank card. The payment is only taken from your account in the event that we reach our minimum target, thereby ensuring that if you pay for a ticket we can guarantee you will have a festival to attend, and if we don't reach our minimum target, your account will not be debited.
We have an amazing line-up of performers from across Ireland and farther afield including Duke Special, In Their Thousands, Emerald Armada, Farriers, Sive, Mark Black and the Trips, The Heads of State, Rosie Carney and much more.
On the Ardan na Fia stage we have poetry, spoken word, live art, DJs, Sound baths and loads more inspirational things to see, hear, and participate in. We will also have the Bluestacks Jamclub stage running throughout the festival so if you fancy a chance to perform then this is your opportunity!
We will have a community space in the campsite, as well as the Preacher's Pulpit for those of you that wish to convert the masses to your point of view on any topic of your choice, don't be shy now!
We will have a number of activities available to entertain younger children at the local community centre beside the festival site and also a range of traditional games onsite.
We will have a selection of vendors onsite, including Grassroutes, a local bicycle hire business that will have electric bikes available for hire on the island so you can explore the island at your leisure.
So if you want to make sure our splendidly fantastical festival goes ahead buy one of the options available, and get all your mates to come too! Cheers!!
