With just five weeks to go until Nathan Carter takes centre stage at the Cut Loose Country Festival in Holycross on Sunday 24th July, organisers are reporting a huge increase in International visitors to the festival this year.

The magnificent festival has become one of the local musical highlights with huge crowds flocking to the GAA field to be royally entertained by scores of country and music stars.

Michael Lowry T.D., and organiser of the annual festival told The Tipperary Star, “This is our fourth year running the Cut Loose Country Music Festival which attracts thousands to Holycross every year. Traditionally we have welcomed country music fans from all over the island of Ireland, and up to now, the UK. However, this year we have had a significant increase in online sales from the UK and groups sales from France and Belgium.”

Nathan Carter will play host to the premier country music festival with some of Ireland’s top performers, Michael English, Declan Nerney, Robert Mizzell, and leading lady, Tipperary's own Louise Morrissey.

Parishioner Michael Lowry continued, “With the help of the local community, the many volunteers, the Garda support, and the festival committee, we have built a solid reputation for entertainment and value. We’re delighted with the interest from far afield,” he said.

Gates open at 12 noon for this outdoor event and non-stop entertainment will be provided from 1pm until 7pm. A large dance-floor will facilitate those who wish to dance and ample seating is also available. Concert-goers will enjoy easy access to and from the festival venue with ample free onsite parking, in addition to a host of hospitality facilities that includes a full alcohol licence and food services.
