Tickets are selling fast for this year’s Doolin Folk Festival (June 10-12th) which includes The Hothouse Flowers, Jerry Fish, Finbar Furey, Dervish and Luka Bloom in its line-up.
Taking inspiration from the great festivals of the 70’s and 80’s and set in the Brigadoon-like atmosphere of Doolin, Co Clare – between the Burren, the Cliffs of Moher and The Aran islands – the mid-June festival is fast becoming a highlight of the summer festival season.
As well as established Irish favourites The Hothouse Flowers, Jerry Fish, Dervish, The Mairtín O’Connor Trio and Luka Bloom, this year’s festival features a raft of young Irish acts including Wallis Bird, Marc O’Reilly, Lynched, Ye Vagabonds and Rackhouse Pilfer. Doolin’s rich musical heritage also is celebrated with local acts including Moher, James Cullinan, The Trí Tones and Tara Howley.
Day and Weekend Tickets for the Doolin Folk Festival are on sale from www.doolinfolkfestival.com and www.tickets.ie.
