Sinead O'Connor will be performing her own songs, and some select hits from the Songbook of Shane MacGowan in Thurles this September.
Those making the Trip to Tipp this September will get the opportunity to listen to a fantastic selection of acts curated by Tom Dunne of Something Happens, who performed at FÉILE ‘90, ‘91 and ’93, and will this year also be returning to the stage alongside some of the most legendary names in Irish rock and roll, including the one and only Sinead O’Connor.
A host of other music acts from across the decades will be out in force, from Sultans of Ping to Horslips and Therapy? bringing everyone right back to the glory days of the nineties music scene. Other headline acts include The Stunning, EMF, The Frank and Walters, The Fat Lady Sings, Transvision Vamp, Something Happens, Eleanor McEvoy, Picturehouse, Jerry Fish and Mundy.
The line-up also includes Brian Downey’s Alive & Dangerous plus Eric Bell and guests Andrew Strong & Bronagh Gallager performing songs from Thin Lizzy’s Live & Dangerous. Attendees will be treated to a very special tribute to Tipperary legend Shane MacGowan.
Unlike the rough and tumble of the old days, Semple Stadium now offers a gourmet food area called Food For Life curated by renowned chef Kevin Thornton, a host of beverage options, easy parking and plenty of accommodation options nearby. This is FÉILE with less mud but just the same amount of madness and music!
Commenting on the launch of FÉILE 19, curator Tom Dunne said: "Last year’s Féile was the gig of the year for me and all the bands involved. So, to see this line up with the original Féile name back is very exciting! Féile to everyone means Thurles, Semple Stadium, the early 90’s, mad crowds, great fun and a truly wonderful generation of great Irish bands. This year's line-up is better still. You will laugh. You will cry. It is time once again to… get the gang back together! This will be special. "
