Castlepalooza today has announced a new partnership with Aiken Promotions for its 10th year that sees them bring in bigger names and move the festival from the August bank holiday weekend to Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd July.
On the way to a redesigned site at the haunted Charleville Castle in Tullamore this year are:
- Jurassic 5
- Cat Power
- Tiger & Woods
- Alle Farben
- Cian Nugent
- Colm Mac Con Iomaire
- Overhead, The Albatross
- Get Down Edits
- The Altered Hours
That might be Castlepalooza’s best lineup yet on the strength of headliners alone.
Tickets are a bit more this year but are still a reasonable €134 + fees for the weekend with camping or €115 + fees for a weekend ticket. Tickets go on sale on Monday at 9am from Ticketmaster.
