If you're worried about what to get up while you're rallying for the next headliner, look no further than the festival’s Arts space!

It includes performance legends, artist residencies, utopian dream spaces, new work commissions, in an often jaw-dropping homage to the world of the arts with art installations, comedy, theatre and cabaret. The highlights are SUN-STOP – a contemporary reimagining of a neolithic stone circle, designed by award-winning architects James Martin & Eibhlín Ní Chathasaigh.  The Internationally-adored giant bunny installation Intrude by Amanda Parer will make an appearance. THISISPOPBABY’s Cracked Lips – acclaimed theatre powerhouses sprinkle their late-night cabaret magic. Shane Daniel Byrne’s Comedy Shithouse – superstar comedian Shane Daniel Byrne wrangles together his dream comedy line-up.


Unleashing their magic, the powerhouse behind the  primary school rap hit ‘The Spark’ will see young artists Kabin Crew and GMCBeats with their Rap for the Craic performance workshop to capture the creativity of Beyond The Pale, recording an onstage rap for the craic by festival goers.

And of course, if you're in your wellness era you must get down to Acushla - the wellbeing area of Beyond The Pale Music & Arts Festival comprising The Space Between, Tigh n' Alluis and Bosca Beatha, which takes place in the beautiful surrounds of The Glendalough Estate, Co.
