When: August 12th-14th
Who: Ash, Ryan McMullan, And So I Watch You From Afar, Kíla, David Keenan, Paddy Casey, Duke Special, Maka B, Jealous Of The Birds, Dea Matrona, Mary Coughlan and more...
What: Good news, everyone! Stendhal in August is definitely going ahead – following the first weekend of the festival, which took place earlier this month. Northern Ireland’s first music festival in almost two years was a total buzz! Social distancing measures will be in place, but if you’re in the North – or anywhere near it – this one is not to be missed. There’s comedy, art, incredible food, music from some of Ireland’s most enthralling up-and-coming talents, and fun for the whole family.
Make sure to: Check out the Limavady Longline Surf School, where accommodating instructors will help you catch that wave!
Tickets: Adult and family tickets from £40-90, and child tickets from £15-30; campervan tickets are £40, all including VAT via stendhalfestival.com
