The festival has announced its return for 2023 in a new venue at Lough Key Forest Park Boyle, Co. Roscommon on 24 and 25 June 2023, three months earlier in the year, now falling a week after Beyond The Pale and Body&Soul Festival.

Early bird tickets are announced for the family-friendly festival, who say the change in venue allows the capacity to 4,500 people. A lineup is to follow.

Night and Day will take place next year in Lough Key Forest Park, The change in venue will allow for a larger number of attendees, with the updated capacity capped at 4,500 people. The event is produced by Cruachan Productions.

Lough Key Forest Park is home to several activities such as zip lining courses, tree-top walks and boat tours; all of which Night and Day festivalgoers will have access to across the weekend. The existing campsite at Lough Key also offers a high-end camping experience, including electricity points for campervans, water stations, and showers.

The musical lineup, which will be announced in early 2023, will continue to heavily promote Irish talent.

The 2023 line-up will also include a political symposium featuring prominent national politicians, as well as a full family-friendly itinerary that will entertain and engage both children and parents.

“Commenting on the announcement, said: “”We’re really excited for the next chapter of what has already been a great adventure. Lough Key is the perfect setting for a music festival and we can’t wait to develop Night and Day further in our amazing new home. We would also like to thank the O’Connor-Nash family from Clonalis House for letting us use their beautiful estate for our debut festival.”
