Now in its sixth year, the KnockanStockan music and arts festival will be launching this year’s full line-up at Dublin’s Ormond Wine Bar on Friday June 29th. The Eskies, Blind Yackety, Cocaine Ponytail and The Boo Box will play on a night that will also bring the release of a compilation CD featuring a number of acts playing at this year’s festival and a DVD with live performances from last year’s festival. The music starts at 8pm with a DVD screening at 5pm and free pizza for the early birds. Full details on the event page here.
Last year was my first year at the festival and as my review explained, I loved it. Good vibes, good music and a great location made it a festival to remember and I’m looking forward to more of the same from this year.
There’s a mammoth 150 bands playing this year’s festival which again takes place in the beautiful surroundings of the Blessington Lakes from July 27th to 29th. Tickets (€36/day or €75/weekend) are on sale now – grab ’em here.
