The Temple House Festival in Sligo is shaping up to be the best fest in the west with an amazing line-up confirmed. More than 100 Irish and international acts will perform on four stages over three days at the award winning festival.
Described as “A wonderful festival… like a smaller, friendlier Glastonbury”, The Temple House Festival promises to be a little bit different and provide a relaxed chilled out atmosphere in idyllic surroundings, which will captivate and enthral anyone who attends. Live music will be complemented by a unique arts trail, a path embedded in the stunning natural setting of the Temple House woods, where you can encounter a world filled with the kooky, colourful, weird and wonderful.
The Temple House Arts Trail involves a great array of work by local and national based artists with creations ranging from giant pink flamingos, alien fork people, punk birds, life size wire sculptures, recycled art and more. This year’s Arts Trail will feature art installations of all shapes and sizes and in all kinds of locations. Artists will also be in situ along the trail, working on various projects, inviting people to join in on the fun. Temple House Festival is family friendly so there will also be a range of children’s activities for under 12s in the Temple House Walled Garden, a medieval village and archery to entertain.
