About Kaleidoscope Festival
Ireland’s leading family-focused music and arts festival Kaleidoscope are delighted to reveal that Gavin James is the final headline act to be announced for the second year of the festival. Fresh from playing his sold-out date at the 3Arena last month, Gavin James will be joined on the bill this summer by an array of the hottest Irish acts right now including Hudson Taylor, the gloriously whimsical Camille O’Sullivan, Cork’s silky-voiced songstress Lyra whilst The 2 Johnnies bring their ribald humour to the stage.
These unmissable acts join already-announced headliners The Divine Comedy and Basement Jaxx (DJ set) who promise to help kick off the school summer holidays in unforgettable fashion. Across the line-up are even more of Ireland’s firm favourites. Ready to entertain every age group, from grandparents with bus passes to babes in arms, are HamsandwicH, The Scratch, Ryan Sheridan, Bird On The Wire, Brian Deady, Aimée, Ryan McMullan, Lisa McHugh, Dublin Gospel Choir, Block Rockin Beats, Stephanie Rainey, True Tides, Tim Chadwick, Lavengro, Bobbi Arlo and Luz Corrigan.
And it isn’t just music that the whole family can look forward to at this year’s festival. Kaleidoscope’s extensive Sports and Wellness programme will offer everything from laughter yoga to ziplining. Elsewhere, the brand-new Carnivale area, which will be home to acrobats, dancers and strongmen over the weekend, will transport the whole family to the 19th century travelling fairground - a true journey back in time! Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more details on the many fantastically fun areas being curated to ensure that this year’s festival is the event of the summer for families across Ireland.
