With the combination of the Live Performance Support Scheme and the success of the Government's test gigs at the Iveagh Gardens and the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, we are on the verge of a huge explosion of music activity. As part of our Summer of Music 2021 special feature, we're taking a look at some of the most eagerly anticipated events of the summer...
Earagail Arts Festival
Where: Fanad Lighthouse, Letterkenny, Donegal
When: July 24, at 8pm
Who: Brigid Mae Power, Súil Amháin, Shammen Delly & more
What: (Socially) Distanced Perspectives, co-curated by Cian Ó Cíobháin, brings together three distinct contemporary Irish acts from the edges of the nation to the edge of Ireland’s most northerly county. From sunny-side slow-mo hip-hop of the Kingdom, to Donegal eldritch electronic, to beautiful widescreen folk from Gaillimh: this limited capacity, outdoor show takes place in the grounds of the iconic Fanad Lighthouse. The event will be filmed and broadcast at a later date on the Earagail Arts Festival YouTube Channel.
