Castlepolooza final line up announced
Castlepalooza. It’s in the atmosphere.
Since 2006, Castlepalooza has developed a reputation for bringing together an eclectic mix of homegrown and international music acts; arts, food and above all – unrivalled festival fun – to the wooded wonderland of Charleville Castle.
The final batch of acts have been confirmed for this year’s festivities, including Headliners Le Galaxie on Centrestage and Denney in The Courtyard. Le Galaxie have spent the past six years claiming their title as Ireland’s best live act. The nation’s favourite dance floor tear jerkers took their live shows to even greater heights in 2016 when they supported Faithless on their Irish tour and as usual, had the audience of major European festivals like Lovebox, Benicassim and Electric Picnic on their feet and dancing. 2017 has seen the band release their hit single, “Pleasure”, featuring newest band member MayKay, off their forthcoming album of the same name.
Dublin’s most notorious night scene is coming to the courtyard this year. BEDLAM & ABSTRACT will take over on Friday and Saturday night. Bringing you the best of the best, we have some of the sickest DJs providing the tunes to take you into the early hours of the morning all weekend long. Courtyard acts across the weekend include; Al Murphy, Arman Giorgio, Bruno Grecchi, Beat Division, Bedlam DJ’s, Betty Jiminez, Boots & Kats, Charlie Garrett B2B AJ, Chasing Abbey, Daser B2B Mark Gill, Deadwax, Denney, Dylan Higgins, Fio’n’Jio, Fintan Lalor, Heroes in Hiding DJ Set, Killthedjs, Karl Guest B2B Aiden Thompson, Mark Byrne, Minisoul, Pat Hyland, Sarah Mooney and Sally Cinnamon.
Further acts on Centrestage and Original Penguin Stage include:
Hiva Oa, Liza Flume, Oddsocks, Bad Sea, Bitch Falcon, Daithí, Dublin Ukulele Collective, Dreaming of Jupiter, Floor Staff, Hot Cops, Ivy Nations, Mywoollyhat, Prymary Colours, Dip Djs, RSAG, Third Smoke, Tiz McNamara, Wastefellow, Elaine Mai & Seo Linn.
It doesn’t just stop at music and comedy! Castlepolooza has got you fully entertained all weekend with incredible workshops. A great way to make new mates, learn new skills and talents you never knew you had, whilst having the absolute craic. There’s something for everyone! Escape total reality for an hour and become someone or something you never thought you could be in our drama workshop…or test out your dance moves with Hip hop or Belly dancing. When it’s all too much, and you fancy getting Zen, take much needed time to heal your mind, body and soul with our relaxing and soothing yoga workshop Saturday and Sunday morning! A perfect way to start the day! Centre yourself in the present and leave last night’s session behind. Other workshops include JP’s Clubbercise, Circus Ribbons and Hula Hooping.
