Castlepalooza is back in Charleville Castle in Tullamore, Offaly for the eight year and they’ve left it til last to announce their lineup for the festival on August 2nd-4th. From A-Z:

The festival happens the same weekend as Oxegen and Indiependence in the relatively intimate surrounds of Charleville Castle and looks like the best lineup of the three for me. Tickets are €79 plus fee for a 3-day camping pass. And yes, I’ll be doing a DJ set on the Saturday night – should be fun.
