Dublin’s only outdoor festival returns

by Rachel Cunningham

Féile Nasc, Dublin’s only outdoor folk and traditional music festival, will be returning to Marlay Park this May 21 from 12pm, writes Rachel Cunningham.

The mission of the festival is to celebrate the connection between people, nature, language and music. 

The Irish language plays a central part in the festival and will be used throughout the day.

Music will be performed on two stages and this year’s headline act is the iconic singer, Paul Brady. He will be joined by some of Ireland’s best known folk artists with a sprinkling of local talent throughout the day, including Inni-K, Strange Boy, The Bonnymen, Caitlín and Ciarán, Daoirí Farrell, The LoCal, etc.

The festival will include a large children’s activity area, featuring a forest camp, drumming workshop and face painting, while the food and drink stalls will champion local brewers and artisan food. 

In the interest of creating minimal environmental impact, attendees are encouraged people to walk, cycle or use public transport.
