More about Otherside festival this year

From the blurb.


The gorgeous site on Rock Farm sits in the shadow of the famous Slane Castle, a mere 40-minute drive from Dublin on the banks of the River Boyne. Spreading beneath a canopy of native forests and through the picturesque meadows of the Boyne Valley, Rock Farm is a lush playground for this intimate gathering.


Explore new sights and sounds through a host of cleverly designed and beautifully decorated unique areas. Discover new bands and enjoy firm favourites at our Town Hall Stage, relax and laugh with friends at the Comedy Club or get lost in dance with electronic DJs at A Place To Dance. The music doesn’t end with our headliners, with a choice of two late-night areas, get your trad fix at the Cobblestone pop-up or spend the wee hours Beneath The Trees discovering a deeper side of electronica.


RISE Nordic Spa will return once again to the idyllic setting of Rock Farm to bring their grounded, restorative wellness program to the festival. Recharge with a morning swim in the natural lake or chill out by the poolside cocktail bar, the perfect spot to find your zen. Catch your breath and wash away the sins of the night before with a wood-fired hot tub or Nordic-style sauna. Morning yoga sessions and a full wellness retreat awaits.


Our sleeping options aim to restore you for another day of adventure. Choose between our general campsite or boutique camping upgrades, from beautifully kitted-out Yurts to pre-pitched tents ready and waiting for your arrival.


The best of local food traders will be on site offering an authentic taste of the Boyne Valley with rich and nourishing quick bites on the go. Grab brunch with pals between stages or book in for an evening meal with the return of our fully-seated bookable Zhug Banquet, bringing the finest selection of North African and Middle Eastern style cuisine using local produce. A number of pop-up bars will be stocked with refreshing cocktails, delicious wines, and ice-cold draught beers.
