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...
Open House Festival
Where: Bangor Castle Walled Garden, Bangor
When: August 12-30
Who: Mary Coughlan, Lisa Hannigan, Duke Special, Ronnie Greer, Ken Haddock, Camille O’Sullivan, Dana Masters, Celtic Soul
What: Open House Festival returns in a socially-distanced format this August – with tickets sold in a bubble system. Over three weeks, the stunning surroundings of Bangor Castle Walled Garden will play host to a diverse selection of music, comedy, spoken word and cinema – in a set-up that’s open air, fully seated and protected from the elements under a stretch tent canopy.
Make sure to: Catch the festival’s free Music In The Park programme every Sunday in August and September in Ward Park – with one of our ‘Hot For 2021’ Irish Acts The Florentinas playing August 15.
