The outdoor festival takes place in Hazelwood, Sligo over the June public holiday weekend, from May 31 to June 3. Damien Dempsey and Hermitage Green will be among the headline acts, with Easkey’s Bridin also on the bill. Glamping and camping facilities are provided, with families and campervans also welcome, and there’s a wide option for tickets, from full weekend glamping to general and family day passes.

Billow Wood, who played at Electric Picnic last year, recently returned from a showcase event at Folk Alliance International 2024 in Kansas City, USA, where five other Irish acts also performed a series of gigs.

The band is currently recording new material for release later this year.
