KnockanStockan Music Festival – Blessington, Wicklow

The fifth KnockanStockan Music Festival returns to Blessington Lakes, Co. Wicklow on 22nd, 23rd and 24th July.

Run entirely by volunteers, KnockanStockan is about “bringing musicians and music lovers together to celebrate, showcase and share their music in the magnificent backdrop of the lakes and this year is set to be the best one yet!”

Tickets are €75 for the weekend, available here.

Special highlights this year will include a dedicated family camping site with plenty to see and do for children big and small and the Faerie Field, this enchanted area will be the home of the new chill out healing area, which was previously out of bounds to us mere mortals.
