The August Bank Holiday is upon us, and it sure is a busy one! 

One thing is for sure it it won't be a boring one. We're spoiled for choice when it comes to music festivals this weekend, with three of Ireland's biggest happening across the country. 

The next three days play host to Castlepalooza, Beatyard and Indiependence. 

If you're heading along to any of them, we've done a little round up of each, including acts that you can't miss. 


Taking place in Charleville Castle in Tullamore, Offaly, Castlepalooza really does prove that the best things come in small packages. 

The lineup this year boasts both homegrown and international talent, and it does not disappoint. We've three acts you don't wanna miss over the weekend. 

Le Galaxie

These are an electronic band based in Dublin. Each show they do is incredible and gets you up on your feet, no bother. 


This lad is one of the coolest in the business. He's an Irish music and producer, best known for making music using recorded sounds from the West of Ireland. 

Waze and Odyssey 

Looking for a good dance this weekend? Serge and Firas are the lads to help you do just that. 


Beatyard is back for another year and is happening in Dun Laoghaire. You can get both weekend or day passes for this one. It's on Saturday and Sunday. 

Be sure to check out:

Mark Ronson

He's back on the scene and gracing the main stage. 

Rusangano Family 

This musical trio from Limerick are making waves both in Ireland and abroad. 


Dublin raised UK based Soulé is such a performer. You need to see this woman do her thing live. 

There will also be delicious grub on offer from their Eatyard. 



Consisting of Dara Quilty and Ronan Nolan, these lads are dominating the festival scene in Ireland this year. We can totally understand why. 

Tom Odell 

This English singer songwriter is full of talent and emotion and always puts on one hell of a show. 


Beoga collaborated with Ed Sheeran on his massive hit Galway Girl so we don't need to convince you that they're absolutely DEADLY. 

Now - go forth and ENJOY THE WEEKEND!
