Strange Brew has announced that Fall Right Into Place festival, held on the grounds of Claregalway Castle near Galway City, will return from September 16-18 this year.
There will be a bus service from Galway Cathedral to Claregalway Castle, returning after the festival to Galway’s West End for a late night music trail through Róisín Dubh, The Blue Note, Massimo, Bierhaus & Salt House.
Over two decades, Strange Brew has proven itself integral to the Irish music scene as a record label and music agency. Renowned Dublin electronic artist Daithí's forthcoming third album will land via the label on September 9th, for example.
Fall Right Into Place's hand-picked line-up reflects Strange Brew’s singular dedication to the arts community.
Dublin four-piece The Scratch blend metal and traditional Irish music for an unforgettable guitar-driven sound. Following the arrival of their live album, Couldn't Leave Our Gaffs, The Scratch returned in March with a brand new single ‘Another Round’. The single found them blurring the boundaries between metal roots and a love of old Irish storytelling.
Galway shoegaze outfit NewDad performed at SXSW in March after the release of their sublime Banshee sophomore EP. The quartet's dreamy debut EP Waves was released in early 2021 to critical acclaim, produced by Chris Ryan.
As for The Mary Wallopers, the folk-trad trio from Louth kept people dancing with their popular lockdown livestreams and live at Vicar Street for several shows this spring.
Made up of brothers Andrew and Charles Hendy, as well as Sean McKenna, the ballad group have rapidly established themselves as a captivating force in Irish music – with their trademark combination of charm, irreverence, staggering talent and a fiercely DIY ethos. In 2019, they released their acclaimed debut EP, A Mouthful of The Mary Wallopers.
"This is more like a reboot of Fall Right Into Place than a second year," festival organiser Gugai says. "We were operating under a lot of restrictions for the first one in 2021, but I think everyone could see the potential for what it could become when things returned to normal.
"It was so magical last year, a real balm for the soul at a difficult time, a very emotional experience for a lot of people - myself included! I am very happy to be able to invite back some of the acts that performed last year, as well as plenty of new ones," Gugai adds.
"There are some big changes too: capacity has been expanded and it’s no longer all-seated. We have Galway Bay Brewery on board, so there’s going to be a wonderful array of craft beers available. The buses run back to Galway’s Westend after the festival for a late night music trail. The perfect way to wrap up the festival season."
Tickets are €35 (+booking fee) per day available from fallrightintoplace.ie from 10am on Friday, 17 June 2022.
