Common Threads is curated and programmed by Peter Kelly and Daithí O Dronaí, and aims to break the mold on a traditional festival setup, by placing emphasis on discovery with the backdrop of the the local community, its spaces and landscape, as they travel by organised bus between venues, with eco-friendly sustainability as part of the decision making.

“It’s amazing to be back for our second year. We’ve built a beautiful community around Common Threads, and it’s lovely to be part of something new and exciting. We’re stepping up this year as well, with a bigger production and a second day. The line up is really special, with some of the best artists in the country.” –

“Getting to do this once was a dream come true for us. Having the opportunity to return to The Burren for a second year is just incredible. We have some special surprises and tweaked some aspects around for a better experience while maintaining the special energy from last year.”
