Feile Festival – The Trip To Tipp Is Back!

It’s 31 years since the first Feile Festival in Tipperary and in a year like no other, we present a series of events like no other, Feile Forever.

The Feile Forever Series  will take place across Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th September located in Ireland’s most beautiful locations Birdhill, Co. Tipperary at the foot of the Silvermines.

The musical lineup across the weekend includes: Jerry Fish, The Frank & Walters, Paul Noonan, The Funk Junkies, The Alvin Purple Experience with Host Will Leahy and DJ NDT will all line out for Feile Forever 2021.  All the shows will happen in a specially built outdoor concert venue from the same team who revived Feile at Semple Stadium in 2018 and 2019.

Promoters CWB said,

“After two great years in Thurles we had huge plans for Feile 2020 and 2021 but alas a Stadium show isn’t possible this year but hopefully the Feile Forever nights will fill the gap until next year.”

Kicking things off on Thursday 2nd September see’s Bell X1’s Paul Noonan take to the stage of the specially built outdoor socially distant concert venue. Songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Paul best known as the frontman of one of Ireland’s most iconic acts, Bell X1, but is also renowned  as a solo artist and collaborator on various musical projects including Printer Clips, Starboard Home, and House Plants.

The second night, Friday 3rd September see’s Jerry Fish make a special performance at  Birdhill in Tipperary. Jerry Fish is a carny soul, one who has spent much of his life on the road, a shape-shifter, showman, shaman, songster, rock peacock and supper club crooner from Lynchville, a constantly evolving artist who has always favoured innovation over orthodoxy.

Saturday 4th September brings arguably Ireland’s greatest pop band The Frank & Walters to the stage. They will talk about their career on stage with Will Leahy before playing a full show.

The Final night Sunday 5th September  sees two of the greatest live acts to come out of the Midwest come together for the very first time as The Alvin Purple Experience and The Funk Junkies.

This project has been part-funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht Sport and Media from the Live Performance Support Scheme.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies.
