Once again this year, with KnockanStockan, you’ll struggle find a better homegrown festival celebrating a diverse range of Irish artists and art. Returning to Blessington Lakes in Co. Wicklow across July 27-29, tier 3 tickets for the festival are priced at €130 and are available to buy here.

As well as music, this year’s KnockanStockan will also feature performance art from various acts and performers, comedy, kids areas, as well as various hideaways and areas to explore including the Woodtown, the Unfiltered Stage, the Art Trail and the oldest of the festival’s hand built wooden stages, the Faerie Field. Go here for full information.
