The third edition of Forever Young Festival takes place from July 14 to July 16 in Kildare.
Forever Young Festival returns to the glorious grounds of Palmerstown House Estate, Co Kildare this July (14-16), with tickets on sale now.
A host of golden oldies are set to take to the stage over the weekend to give those that are forever young at heart a trip down memory lane.
2023’s edition will continue to showcase some of the greatest artists of the 1980s, with Bananarama, Squeeze, Neville Staple, Erasure's Andy Bell, Billy Ocean, ABC, Tony Hadley, Go West, Soul II Soul, and many more on the lineup.
Each year, attendees bring their camping chairs, reunite their old gangs, and feel forever young over the weekend, watching over 30 iconic original bands from the late ‘70s to the early ‘90s”. The artists are at their peak, with most celebrating four decades or more in the business, and sound better than ever.

The Forever Young Festival exploded onto the scene in 2019, winning awards for ‘Best Medium-Sized Festival’ and ‘Best Line-up’ in its first year of operation. Post lockdown, in July 2022, attendees relished the opportunity to finally get out and party in the sun.
“Bananarama put on a brilliant show last year, we wouldn’t normally have an artist from the previous year back this quickly, but it’s a special occasion, a worldwide 40th- anniversary tour!” says Festival Organiser Dr Sharon Alston smiles, speaking from her home in Rathdowney, Co. Laois. "So many people wrote to us after 2022 and said, ‘We’ve got to have Bananarama back!’. With Neville Staple from Fun Boy 3 joining us, it will be extra special."
Forever Young 2023 is a fundraiser for animal welfare with all profits donated to the charity. Forever Young is partnered with the ISPCA, as well as the new charity Animal Welfare and Veterinary Care Ireland.
With a variety of tickets on sale, attendees can camp over the weekend, either in their own tents or an upgraded camping service, provided in special tickets.
Alternatively, campervans and caravans are welcome, however, a specific pass is required. There are also day tickets available, with transport possible via car, bus or carpool.
