After a long hiatus, the Trip to Tipp will officially make an electrifying return to Thurles on Saturday 22nd September as Féile Classical.
However in a far cry from the Feile days of yesteryear, the 2018 version will have a more grown up feel with bespoke gin and Prosecco bars, gourmet food stalls and most importantly, a fully seated concert.
CWB.ie in association with Live at Semple Stadium proudly presents Féile Classical. As Féile Classical is a seated event, tickets are limited. Tickets from €49.50, plus charges, will go on sale from www.ticketmaster.ie at 9am on Friday 27th April.

Hug it out.
What a day!
The Trip to Tipp is most certainly back,
For all the kind words and the many Thurles gems of nostalgia,
Go raibh míle maith agaibh!#FéileClassical pic.twitter.com/o5ndnvQxgV
Sunday afternoon 1994, D’Unbelievables hijacked the stage singing the Hucklebuck, before introducing Fleadh Cheoil ‘94 winners who sang “everything that rises” as gaeilge, just before The Stunning took to the stage for their last gig ever!! I cannot wait for September!— JP O Meara (@jpmeara) April 25, 2018
Feile is making a return!!!! One glorious summer weekend in 1990, the Trip to Tipp happened and the lives of young Irish music fans changed forever! Now, get ready to do it all over again in 2018!

#TriptoTipp Hi @tomhappens 1/2 All I brought with me was £80 (4 x £20 notes). No change of clothes, no toothpaste, no tent, no deodorant, no nothing ... just £80 and the shirt on my back. I put £40 in my Doc Martin boots and partied Friday and Saturday ...— Shane Russell (@shanerussell159) April 24, 2018
Féile 94 was my first #triptotipp. I was 16 and managed to stay awake for the whole weekend. Went to go asleep in my two man tent and wasn't lying down 5 minutes when the rain hit my face. My pegs were stolen. Slept for 24 hours straight through when I got home. What a weekend!— David Spain (@davyspain) April 24, 2018
Bah ha ha I remember Féile! Went when I was 17 and 18 bloody brilliant!! The streets were covered in cans like a carpet! People would let you in to their house to have a wash! Those were the days! And not a bean between us! #TripToTipp #Féile— Aisling McNiffe (@McNiffecent) April 24, 2018

Coincidentally my mother framed my Feile T-shirt for my 40th in January. In 1991 I was 13! Didn't get going again till '94 after my uncle found a girl asleep in a shopping trolley in his front garden in Thurles that first year. It wasn't even me. @FeileClassical #TripToTipp pic.twitter.com/KJZ5pdL8qP— patrice harrington (@patriceharr) April 24, 2018
