Filling in that big Oxegen-shaped hole in the July calendar, is now, the Punchestown Festival.

Aiming for a much older audience, the one-day festival at Punchestown Racecourse is headlined by Lionel Richie with Shane Filan, James Morrison, Corinne Bailey Rae, Sister Sledge and Albert Hammond.

It happens on Saturday 23 July 2016.

Tickets priced €69.50 incl. booking fee go on sale at 9am next Friday, March 11th from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide and www.ticketmaster.ie
