The Joy Sylvie Stage returns for this year’s event, bringing a fresh eclectic vibe to the afternoon with internationally acclaimed Dublin poet, Stephen James Smith headlining the spoken word.

A regular at all the major festivals and one of Ireland’s music pioneers, Red FM DJ Stevie G will be spinning the decks, bringing a sound system of hip-hop, soul, and afro-beats during the afternoon, whilst Jinx Lennon, one of Ireland’s most iconic underground artists, deals with social issues through his honest, gritty, funny and up-lifting punk folk commentary based songs.
Returning for its second round, Ringo: Music Bingo, the world’s greatest Comedy-Music-Intro-Game-Not-Quiz, will host a round of family movie theme tunes as well as some classic pop songs.
