It Takes A Village was one of the most unique new festivals which took place in Ireland this year.
It happens in Trabolgan holiday village in East Cork with holiday home accommodation (150 Self-Catering Houses and 35 fully-serviced campervan sites) and this year’s lineup featured Young Fathers, Andrew Weatherall, Martin Hayes & Steve Cooney, Lankum, The Blindboy Podcast, Shit Robot, Saint Sister, Bantum , Bon Voyage, Le Boom, Talos, Fujiya & Miyagi, Brian Deady, Bitch Falcon and more. I did a DJ set in a swimmming pool as part of it. It was a vibe.
The festival has now announced its dates for 2019 for any party planners and they are Friday 10th – Sunday 12th May 2019.
Early bird tickets on sale now from uticket.ie wiyth a deposit system. Prices start at €259.65.
