“This is more like a reboot of Fall Right Into Place than a second year. We were operating under a lot of restrictions for the first one in 2021, but I think everyone could see the potential for what it could become when things returned to normal. It was so magical last year, a real balm for the soul at a difficult time, a very emotional experience for a lot of people – myself included! I am very happy to be able to invite back some of the acts that performed last year, as well as plenty of new ones. There are some big changes too: capacity has been expanded and it’s no longer all-seated. We have Galway Bay Brewery on board, so there’s going to be a wonderful array of craft beers available. The buses run back to Galway’s Westend after the festival for a late night music trail. The perfect way to wrap up the festival season.”
