vant Vantastival 2013: Irish Festivals News

Vantastival is a family-friendly festival which takes place over the May Bank Holiday Weekend. Three stages of live music and entertainment host up to 70 acts over the course of the weekend, while a range of activities focusing on the campervan lifestyle bring an extra dimension to the only festival of its kind in Ireland. Other attractions include gourmet food stalls, festival traders, scheduled kids’ activities, documentary cinema, art, craft and theatre, ensuring that Vantastival has something for everyone, with or without a campervan!

Campervans are welcome to park on site at no extra charge, but you don’t have to have a campervan to enjoy all that’s on offer and there is a dedicated tent campsite for those without vans! Children are welcome and kids under 14 get in for free.

Five bands have been confirmed for the festival so far, including up and coming Donegal rock outfit Mojo Gogo. We love these guys!

Alongside Mojo are trad rockers Wicker Bones, alt-Dubs Color//Sound, The Boo Box. check out their tunes below:
