There will be a host of hospitality facilities and fun activities on site including food and bar facilities. Centrally located in the town of Roscrea with ample parking facilities allowing easy access to the festival site on the sports grounds of Colaiste Phobal.
Setting up of the music festival came from Principal Michael O’ Connor looking at funding options for the development of sports facilities for Colaiste Phobal. “Although the main function of the event is to raise funding for the sports development, I thought that it would also provide us with the opportunity to run a great event for Roscrea and the region.”
Alan Kelly TD, Chairman of the organising committee, said “It’s great to see such an event being organised for a town like Roscrea who over the years had such a proud musical history with acts such as the Stunning having taken to the stage in the iconic Pathe Hotel. The music festival is a great platform for a community event and regional music festival to support the growth and development of sports facilities for Colaiste Phobal Roscrea and the community. I am proud to be part of the organising committee and hope to see this grow in an annual event in Roscrea.”
