And it’s not all music in Trabolgan, dive in to the wet and wild indoor pool parties, visit the Birds of Prey centre, take a ride on the Go-Karts, play games at the arcade, or, get out and ride the soundwaves on the festival’s new offering, the Cork Harbour Boat Party (separate ticket required, available from February 1st).

With three main indoor venues and pop-up stages all over the 120 acre site at Trabolgan, villagers will be spoiled with top quality comforts in this unique festival setting.

Check into your cosy village home and enjoy a clean bed, warm showers, and private bathrooms, for the weekend. 

The festival offers two ticket options: Book a house with your friends (e.g. a 5 person house = 5 festival tickets and accommodation for the entire weekend), or book your camper van pitch and bring the van, if that’s how you roll.
