Last year saw the first year of what I’m certain is destined to become one of the leading music festivals on the island of Ireland. With it’s picturesque setting on Lough Swilly at the Buncrana shore front, it really doesn’t get much better. And with the line-up to date for this year, it’s going to memorable in all the right ways.
Last year saw Feeder and DJ Roger Sanchez entertain the crowds as they basked in June sunshine. At the time Sanchez remarked that it actually felt more like Ibiza as the boats and yachts watched the festival from off-shore.
This year the festival returns on the 28th – 29th June 2019 and it’s going to be even bigger and better than before. With acts such as Hudson Taylor, TheHothouse Flowers, The Blizzards, Natty Wailer, Key West, Lovengro, Don’t Fear The Natives and Town Law already confirmed, you can’t help but want to go. Additional acts are said to be announced soon.
Managment of the festival have said that following a very safe first concert, we are now admitting under 16’s to the event, accompanied by a responsible adult, while camping & glamping facilities on-site will make the event extra-special, with each night closing with a spectacular fireworks display.
This years line-up really is something special for Inishowen, and with such utterly affordable early-bird tickets (€20 per night) this is sure to be the best value for money festival in Ireland. Alcohol is served on site, and in Buncrana, you’ll pay the same at the festival as you would pay in the local pub, with pints starting at only €4, and much more, including food available all day and plenty for younger music fans to do as well.
The Management committee say they are proud of our ambition to become one of the safest, entertaining and fun summer festivals in Ireland, and we have a safety record to prove it too. If you fancy a dip on the beach, lifeguards are also on site throughout the event, just make sure you pay attention to the instructions of security and Gardai!
Many people often say that Donegal is the forgotten county. Buncrana Music Festival is helping put this in the corner. With a festival like this, Buncrana Music Festival is putting Donegal back on the map and for all the right reasons – good music, great festival, fab people and memories being made to last a lifetime.
