“The” festival for the nation’s culture-hungry and left-of-centre, not to mention the generally sound among us, Body & Soul, has upped the ante with an altogether eclectic roster of artists and events. With only Tier 3 tickets left – and thankfully these can be paid for in installments – we would strongly advise those of you still dragging your heels to get a wiggle on because with this line-up you won’t have the option for long. And if the music isn’t enough Food On Board (featuring White Mausu, My Goodness, Veuve Clicquot Champagne Bar, etc.) will ensure that you’ll be nourished from within as well as through the ether.
The line-up so far includes Metronomy, Mykki Blanco, Austra, BARQ, Lambchop, Sinkane, Sleaford Mods, Elaine Mai, Jinx Lennon and King Kong Company. Not to mention Katie Laffan… she’ll be there. Songhoy Blues and Ailbhe Reddy too. And Kelly-Anne Byrne and Le Bloom.
