THE SUGARBEAT Festival returns to Tuam Stadium next month with headline appearances by The Stunning, Ryan Sheridan, Hometown, and The Original Rudeboys.
The festival, now in its second year, takes place on Saturday August 22 and Sunday 23, and will also feature appearances from The Amazing Apples, Big Generator, and Rackhouse Pilfer.
“The west of Ireland needs more outdoor events like this and we’re happy to be bringing some of Ireland's biggest acts to Galway for SugarBeat," says festival director, Shane Donnellan. "We found last year that there’s a great appetite for a music festival in Galway, when Damien Dempsey performed to a sold out SugarBeat Fest. After last year’s success, we decided to give it another go and make it bigger and better.”
As well as music, there will also be a continental market, featuring vendors and artisan producers from around the country, and locally sourced food will be available throughout the festival. There are a number of local pubs and clubs affiliated with the festival. For a full list of participants, see www.sugarbeat.ie
A shuttle bus is available from Galway to the festival site in Tuam. Day tickets are available for the festival at €35 for Saturday and €30 for Sunday.
