“The stage is set for a fantastic festival,” says promoter Philip Meagher. “It was always about the music, a stellar and quality programme which would attract and entertain discerning music fans, and bands that perform so well live and embrace the spirt and ethos of a festival that wants to see people enjoying themselves, the company of friends, the fine weather and a summer to remember.
“The line-up at Forest Fest is music to the ears of fans from all over the country who are converging on Emo next weekend and now we’re putting the finishing touches to the preparations, the infrastructure, the logistics and setting out the fabulous venue so that it’s ready for next weekend for everyone to enjoy, have fun and be safe," he adds. "We’re going to have a fantastic food court, the best of refreshments, including strawberries and cream, which are a must in this wonderful weather, plenty of activities for children and nonstop music.
“They’re going to have a ball. Every attention has been given to all the detail, the things that make a difference so that everyone can have a great time, celebrate the summer and something to remember for years to come. We have branded festival reusable cups to ensure that there’s no plastic litter and we encourage everyone who attends to be responsible and to leave no trace in the arena, the campsites, or the village, that’s our ethos at Forest Fest."
