Tickets€75 via

Knockanstockan Festival 2014 takes place in the lovely surrounds of Blessington. Located in Wicklow overlooking Blessington Lakes, over two days some of Ireland’s greatest bands and entertainers will congregate as a collective to put on a show as never seen before on these shores. Still holding true to its original ethos it is a barrier-free, open and very welcoming festival.

It’s one of the biggest showcases for rising Irish artists and has featured a lot of act we have supported on our Coast to Coast: Tea and Toast events and Plec Picks, we imagine this year will be no different. So we can vouch for a lot of the talent on the lineups each year.
