Townlands Carnival 2017


Following a stellar outing last year, one of Cork’s very finest summer festival propositions, Townlands Carnival, returns across to Leades House in Macroom across the weekend of July 21-23.

Amongst the nicely varied bill of acts playing this year are Rubberbandits (pictured), bona fide Irish festival heroes King Kong Company, Cork’s Ellen King ELLLL, Dublin electronic indie act Le Boom, Om Unit, Hermitage Green, Stomptown Brass, Hvmmingbird, Shookrah and My Fellow Sponges.

And taking in a whole host of cross-genre artistry and performance over the three days, this year’s line-up is brilliantly bolstered by spoken word, art trail and installations, a craft village, a children’s play ahead, a range of food stalls and options, camping & glamping, yoga, dance and much more.

Go here to buy tickets and to check out the full line-up.
