Se­vere weather puts damp­ener on fes­ti­val

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - PICTURES - By MYLES BUCHANAN

WICK­LOW’S new­est fes­ti­val had to stop ear­lier than ex­pected on Sun­day due to some heavy rain­fall.

The Sum­mer­land Mu­sic Fes­ti­val took place in the Abbey Grounds and was due to fea­ture Soul­food DJs, The Rit­u­als, The Jexit, Sion Hill, The Re­ceipts, Hawke, Ryan Mack and The Four of Us.

How­ever, the heav­ens opened up some time be­fore head­line act The Four of Us were due to go on stage.

The on­go­ing se­vere weather caused the stage to flood. Or­gan­is­ers were hope­ful that the weather would clear in time to al­low for the Newry band to per­form, or that an al­ter­na­tive venue could be lo­cated. Un­for­tu­nately, the re­main­der of the con­cert had to be can­celled due to health and safety con­cerns.

The seven other acts who made up the full line-up got to per­form. Com­pli­men­tary tick­ets are also avail­able for next year’s event for those that stayed to the end on Sun­day.

Su­san O’Neill, Shirley O’Neill, Michelle Es­monde and Lynda Pat­ter­son at Sum­mer­land. Bran­don Doyle and Pe­ter O’Reilly. Kyle and Caoimhe Doherty with Butch Do­ran.
