The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Castlepalooza is cel­e­brat­ing its sixth suc­cess­ful year by ex­tend­ing the mu­sic and arts fes­ti­val to three days and cor­ralling more than 50 Ir­ish and in­ter­na­tional acts to play this Au­gust bank hol­i­day week­end.

Head­lin­ing this year’s fes­ti­val in Tul­lam­ore, Co Of­faly, are hip-hop stal­warts Naughty by Na­ture. They will be joined by Hud­son Mohawke, Django Django, Clock Opera, Onra, Jape, The Jimmy Cake, Ade­bisi Shank, Square­head, En­e­mies, We Are Losers and These Charm­ing Men. There will be late DJs each night too. Late-night shows will be held in a new area called the Court­yard. Work­shops, a day spa and ex­hi­bi­tions will be held in Charleville Cas­tle all week­end. The or­gan­is­ers have made a three-day ticket with camp­ing avail­able for ¤59 un­til 8pm tonight, af­ter which the cost will in­crease to ¤89. “It’s prob­a­bly the most rea­son­ably priced three-day ticket com­pared to any other fes­ti­val,” said founder Cil­lian Ste­wart.

“Ev­ery­one has taken a hit this year, so it’s only right we take one for the team, too. The big­ger fes­ti­vals should have done this for peo­ple, but they haven’t – so we’re lead­ing by ex­am­ple.”
