- 18 Dec 17
The gold themed Midas Touch BYOB Festival will be kicking off on New Year's Eve, with over three areas of music, art, spectacle, surprises and enlightenment.
Escape the crowds, queues and the anti climax of New Year's with a brand new BYOB festival taking place at the Loughcrew mansion in co. Meath.
The story of King Midas will be full to the brim with art installations, storytelling, ambient music, restorative yoga, incense burning, massage, cuddle puddles, herbal teas and a golden wish tree. There will be wellness treatments and music from Candlelight Tales, Katie Coldrick and Friends, Ali of Incausa and Jus Damien.
On The Golden Curse Stage, will be an eclectic mix of house, techno, deep house and electronic. Art installations, stage and light design by the colourful event planners, H&G Creations, will ensure it's as gold as possible. The performing acts for this stage are as follows:
