Get us to this festival! 

Is there any better place for a music festival than the north west of Ireland?

We don’t think so, which is why we’re beyond pumped for the Buncrana Music Festival on Friday the 28th and Saturday the 29th of June! 

We can picture it already…

The glistening Buncrana shore front, the smell of the sea, the sun heating the sand and the sound of the tunes drifting through the air (weather permitting of course).

All before getting to retire to a cosy tent and enjoy the spectacular fireworks display each evening.

Sounds like heaven right? 

And that’s before you mention the top shelf Irish talent that’ll be performing!

We’re talking the likes of: Hudson Taylor, the Hot House Flowers, the Blizzards, Keywest, Delorentos and Natty Wailer along with local bands, Lavengro, Don’t Fear the Natives and Town Law, and even more to be announced. 

Organiser Barry Doherty from Notorious Events said there is great feel about Buncrana this year: “The festival continues to grow, and we believe that having an event of this scale is vital for Donegal. We have invested heavily in the past two years to make the event as enjoyable, safe and entertaining as any other festival out there, and no other town can offer the location we have, with stunning views, less two minutes’ walk from the town centre,” he said. 

“We have been blessed with the support of people and businesses across Donegal, with our sponsorship and fundraising, as well as Donegal County Council, local Gardaí, and other public bodies and we are very grateful for the grant funding we received this year for the first time, which will help cover the part of the cost of the likes of our stage, fencing and other infrastructure necessary to make the event happen.”

“We hope that we’ll attract attendees from all over the country, not just locally, and if we can help grow visitor numbers to the area, it’s a win-win for everyone concerned.”

By the way we haven’t even mentioned one of the best parts of the festival yet! It’s good value, really good. 

Like €30 per night for an adult, and under 16’s are just €15 good…

Throw in local pub prices for refreshments and you’ve got the perfect recipe for an epic two days.
