If you just wanna dance with somebody, then this thriller of a festival is sure to offer an incredible time after time with every breath you take (can you tell it's got '80s bands on the bill?).
The 1980s are back with a bang this year, with the party of the summer taking place from July 15-17 on the luxurious grounds of Palmerstown House Estate, Co Kildare.
Forever Young festival is slated to be the most nostalgic event of the year, in all its neon glory, and Hot Press are giving away free tickets to one lucky winner.
Starstudded headliners Marti Pellow (Wet Wet Wet), Holly Johnson (Frankie Goes to Hollywood) and OMD will have you dancing the nights away. Sing along to Tiffany, Paul Young, Haircut 100, Wendy James, Nik Kershaw, Bananarama, Paul Carrack, In Tua Nua, Heather Small, 5 Star, The Boomtown Rats and many many more during the unforgettable event.
Not only will the festival have numerous ‘80s icons playing live, it will also feature a “Great Pretenders” stage, which sees performances by world-class tribute bands for the likes of George Michael, Kate Bush, Madonna, David Bowie and Queen.
Covering a whopping 900 acres, Kildare gem Palmerstown House Estate is also only a stone’s throw from Dublin. Its immaculately manicured grounds are equipped with a wide network of roads and paths, making it easy to explore festival activities and keep the hems of your parachute pants dry. All single-use plastics are fully banned on site, so the beautiful grounds stay clean, festival-goers don’t walk through a sea of waste, none of the waste goes to landfill, this is a festival with a heart and a conscience.
Awarded ‘Best Line Up’ and ‘Best Medium Sized Festival’ in Ireland (2019) in its first year, Forever Young 2022 promises to be one you'll never forget. Covid has been hard on so many, it’s time to let the hair down, loosen the stress levels and get lost in the music of our favourite era.
