Bray People - - FRONT PAGE - By ES­THER HAY­DEN

THE stage times for the up­com­ing Groove Fes­ti­val at Kill­rud­dery have just been re­leased so fes­ti­val go­ers can start plan­ning their week­end’s en­ter­tain­ment.

The fes­ti­val, which takes place on Au­gust 19 and Au­gust 20, will see the pic­turesque Kill­rud­dery play host to a packed au­di­ence of fes­ti­val fans who will not only en­joy the in­cred­i­ble mu­sic but will also have ac­cess to all that the newly ex­panded fes­ti­val has to of­fer, in­clud­ing Thrive, a brand new life­style and well­ness ex­pe­ri­ence event.

Groove, with the in­tro­duc­tion of Thrive, is the next-gen­er­a­tion of well­ness fes­ti­vals where the au­di­ence can bal­ance do­ing a yoga class then chill­ing out and en­joy­ing the best of mu­sic, food and fes­ti­val fun.
