The theme of A Parallel Universe means a focus on futurism with festival organiser Micgael Magowan saying:

“Since 2002, over 7000 native trees including beech, birch, ash, alder, willow, hazel, and oak have been planted on-site. “The festival’s electronic music venue ‘The Moot’ and the festivals picturesque Pond Stage were crafted 5-years ago from renewable pine logs.

 We strive to foster a sense of community and connection both during the festival and at Tubby’s Farm generally. While visiting the festival, people from all walks of life can enjoy yoga, meditation, interactive and educational workshops as well as inspirational talks from individuals who share creative and eco-friendly interests. We’re proud to share our home in the countryside – a collective, beautiful, piece of heaven on earth. We are just the caretakers for the generations to come.

Waterford electro-rock band of buzzers King Kong Company made their name with a series of music videos that grew their audience and established the groundwork for a live show that has only grown their reputation and lead to regualr sold out shows around the country.

With more dates forthcoming and a European record label deal sorted, the band decided to do something different.

The band are offering stems of their tracks to anyone with an interest in remixing their songs. They’ve decided to crown the best remix that comes back with €1,000.

Stems for two of their tracks are available here along with more info.
