28 - 29 June 2019, Buncrana

Buncrana Music Festival returns to Buncrana’s Shore Front in what is expected to be the biggest music event in the north west of the year.

A top-class array of Irish talent is on display with organisers, Notorious Events, revealing eight acts so far, including The Dolerentos, Hudson Taylor, the Hot House Flowers, the Blizzards, Keywest, and Natty Wailer along with local bands, Lavengro, Don’t Fear the Natives and Town Law, with additional artists still to be announced.

The festival takes place on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th June at Buncrana’s scenic Shore Front, and if the weather is anything like last year, we can expect an amazing atmosphere, and all the fun of the sun, sea, sand and sound of fantastic music. Last year’s event was praised for the very safe environment created by the organisers, as well as being excellent value for money.

Additional facilities have also been made available this year, providing a unique glamping experience on site throughout the festival, and for the first time, under 16s can also attend the event, if accompanied by a responsible adult. Each night, the event will also end with a huge fireworks display.
