First Names Announced for Stendhal


Long one of the country’s very best summer festivals, Stendhal returns to Ballmully Cottage Farm in Limavady, Co Derry/Londonderry across August 15-17th.

Today, organisers have announced the first acts to play this year’s outing and it’s a strong mix of established and fast-rising, international and homegrown.

With many more to be announced, among the highlights is a DJ Set from Basement Jaxx, Borders aka Elma Orkestra and Ryan Vail (pictured), Dublin indie rock quartet Bouts, Mob Wife, Amy Montgomery, Lost Brothers, David Keenan, Roe and Stevie Scullion aka Malojian.
