Here’s some descriptions of the trailers setting up shop in Stradbally this year.

Yonder, an eye-watering psychedelic bus, peopled the flotsam of the Summer’s festivals dedicated to side-stepping office work. By day – an immersive school: drag for beginners, blindfold dentistry, lollipop-lady classes, EDM and hip-hip for over 60s, clowning for shy people, inclusivity humming, crap yoga, alternative instruction manuals for housewives … and many far more surreal and less educational lessons. By night, the lights go on, and nonsense is taken seriously: the side-show is the show.

Ellebanna, an Ibiza-based dance intervention in which three creatures not-of-this-earth emerge from an orb-like lair to writhe and slide and investigate the people who think they are watching a show…

Gangsta Granny is back! A gaggle of razor sharp ladies knit a coat for a caravan, and then keep on going.

Crazy Train -Platform 1 is where you come for colour – spray paint to your hearts content, or try our rotating canvases, pendulum paint & subway art. Experiment on the side of a train.

Fashion of Swap – a clothes exchange & repair clinic, where punters can modify their outfit with a funky fringe, get a styling consultation or go for a full change.

Picnic Peaks will take you to a place both wonderful and strange. Enter the Black Lodge for some DAMN fine experiences, surreal meetings, and coffee blacker than the moonless night.

The Dreaming Summer House –  saturated in mystery, mystique and improvised musical and is hosted by Mike and Geri of New Blue Sioux and friends.

TG Ceathaire is posing as a TV studio that is broadcasting live reality/game shows to a global audience – when it is, in fact, hosted from a bashed-up old caravan by a has-been presenter.  

Weather Karaoke – out with the old and tired format of song-and-music to the exhilarating new world of weather presenting.

Nun of That will bring you back to the good auld days of Irish sex education where nuns rule the school.

Lord Ganesh’s Larder is a highly decorated Indian bus serving chai and offering a view from its first floor deck.

The Snug will invite participants to dress up in old shawls and paddy caps, with pipes and newspapers and century old beer bottles – and then leave with a 6×4 print of their seisiún.
