The SoFFT boutique festival will include music, shamanic drumming and meditation.
SoFFT Nights is returning to Dunberry Park in Co. Meath over weekends in July, August and September.
The socially distanced boutique festival will include talks, shamanic drumming, meditation, healing through dance and a star studded line-up of musical acts. This follows up their sold-out events in October 2020.
“People coming out of lockdown are curious. We have had lots of time for self reflection but not much of a chance to do it in a community or supportive environment. We're also really missing communal experiences,” said Natsha Duffy, co-founder of SoFFT productions and festival creator.
“SoFFT Nights Summer 2021 day festivals will be hosting all sorts of interesting events from shamanic journeying and storytelling to forest gong baths and nighttime astronomy lessons. We have been through a lot and these gatherings are about connecting back in with each other in meaningful ways,” she said in a press release.
Cormac Begley, Bunscionn and Lemoncello will play on the 16th and 17th of July. Soda Blonde, Maija Sofia and Nava will perform at the festival on the 27th and 28th of August. Pillow Queens, Roe, Art of Algebra and Dani Larkin will play on the 3rd and 4th September.
All tickets previously purchased will be available for the rescheduled dates. Tickets will be available from Tickets.ie and are €67 each.

SoFFT Nights is a Level 2 Covid-compliant one day festival experience in the heart of the Boyne Valley Co. Meath. Curated out of necessity for people to experience live presentations again in a safe environment, the event is a daughter of the Spirit of Folk Festival, which ran in Dunderry Park from 2011 to 2016.
SoFFT Nights is now re-emerging for these new times where connection, music, art, soulful activities in nature are needed now more than ever. The first edition ran on Friday, October 2nd 2020 and again on Saturday October 3rd.
