Moira Calling Reveal Main Stage Acts


Arguably Northern Ireland’s most promising new small festival outside of Belfast, Moira Calling have unveiled the acts set to the play the Main Stage when it returns for its second outing later this year.

Taking place in the the Co. Armagh village across September 8-9, Eliza and the Bear, Flyte, Emerald Armada, Girls Names (pictured), Stomptown Brass, Brand New Friend and Franklyn will all appear at the Main Stage on the 9th.

Organiser Jillian Marsden of promoters Brown Lemonade said, “Last year when we started this we could never have imagined being here a year later, with a full-blown music festival and a host of top acts on our hands. This is great news for Moira and for local music. We hope that this line-up proves that you don’t necessarily have to go to Belfast to find world-class entertainment. In fact, you should probably be coming to Moira! We hope these seven acts wet people’s appetites for Moira Calling, and we can’t wait to announce our second stage headliners very soon.”

With the line-up for the All the Little Lights second stage still to be announced, tickets are available to buy here priced £30.
