Le Cheile Arts & Music Festival is Ireland's longest running independent festival, which is returning for its 17th consecutive year. This is the place to see the biggest names in music, in small intimate venues, before they make the big time!
The festival includes entertainment from every type of music and art form: music, performance art, theatre, street entertainment, sculpture, painting, spoken word, poetry etc. With everything from hard rock to traditional Irish music to pop, there is something for everyone. Over the years, Le Cheile has consistently hosted the breaking stars of the music world. Most recently, acts such as Kodaline, Walking on Cars, Ryan Sheridan and Lisa Hannigan have graced the festival stages and all BEFORE they were household names!
The event also features established national and international artists including The Frames, Glen Hansard, Hothouse flowers, Aslan, Duke Special, Ham Sandwich, Paddy Casey and many more. Previous festivals have seen the town of Oldcastle crammed with art, children's entertainers, magicians, stilt walkers, drama and fire dancers and 2014 is set to be even bigger and better than before!
