“A festival is something you go to as a spectator but a carnival is something you participate in”
Townlands Carnival 2018 is set to bring it up a notch this summer. To say that we've left an impression on the Irish festival scene is an understatement. Bringing together Music, Art, Circus and Carnival, the team is dedicated to bringing fans a weekend of escaping the norm and exploring the bizarre in all its incantations. Back in the wooded fields of Rusheen Farm, the festivities are set to take place on July 20 - 22.
Now in its fourth year, the purpose-built Townlands' village becomes a home for the weekend; bringing together a celebration of artists from all disciplines and expertise. Five stages, each dedicated to a heady mixture of reggae, hip hop, folk, rock and dance music, give a platform for both established and up and coming acts against a theatrical and visually inspired backdrop.
With a surge of positive feedback since last year’s event, the ethos and dream of the Townlands Carnival team has come to life - managing to conjure an inclusive community over one weekend that has something for the entire family; theatrical escapades, fancy dress and interactive art installations - all the while bringing fans of multiple genres together with a stellar lineup.
The Village Green which includes the Village Hall, Big Bubbles Kids Area and Craft area will inspire and ignite ideas as workshops, talks and performances are hosted by some of the country’s most passionate community development professionals.
If a treat is in order then you can enjoy a luxury festival experience in the VIP Glamping area! Choose between the fantastic Airstream or Silk Road Tents, enjoying the festival in style with your own bar area! This year also sees each Glamper given access to behind the scenes VIP areas!
With an exciting start to official announcements and a taste of magic in the air, Townlands Carnival starts as it means to go on, all in the spirit of bringing something different, new and fresh to Ireland’s culture and festival circuit.
