About Folkfest Killarney

Folkfest Killarney

A festival for music lovers, Folkfest Killarney promises to satisfy every taste! With a dizzying selection in the best of Irish music, upcoming indie acts with some superstars of World music added to the mix.

Grammy nominated, Nigerian superstar Femi Kuti will headline the festival. Femi’s version of ‘Afro-Beat has been described as the most exciting sound to emerge from Nigeria in years. Indian supergroup The Bollywood Masala Orchestra will bring you into the world of dance, music, dynamic rhythm and spirituality that characterises the incredible India we know today.

Lisa Hannigan, Lisa O’Neil and Wallis Bird, three of Ireland’s leading female vocalists will make the trip to the Kingdom and perform at what is becoming one of Ireland’s most unique festivals.
Something amazing happens when Hothouse Flowers step onto a stage and we cannot wait to see what they bring to the INEC Stage.

Making their second appearance at the festival will be Lankum, Aldoc and Kíla with family group Na Mooney’s, brothers Ye Vagabonds, awesome foursome No Crows and Corca Dhuibhne songstress Bernie Pháid will make their Folkfest Killarney debut.

Festival programmer Conor Byrne said “Following on from two successful years at Folkfest Killarney, one of the great joys for me is observing the joy of the faces in the audience. There will be plenty of smiles during this year’s festival! It's going to be a fantastic 3-day music spectacle, that will have you floating back to where ever you came from of a Monday! Bigí linn”
