The Bandon Music Festival is back this June bank holiday for its 18th year. Taking place in the West Cork town from Friday 30th May to Sunday 1st June 2014, the Bandon Music Festival has grown organically into one of Ireland's leading independent music events by attracting big name artists year after year. And 2014 is no exception!

On Saturday 31st May Mundy brings his uniquely upbeat brand of folk-based pop-rock to the main stage. With huge hits like July, Mexico and Galway Girl, alongside new material, Mundy and his band promise a great evening's entertainment. He'll be joined by the endearing simplicity of up and coming Dublin brothers Hudson Taylor whose debut EP Battles shot straight to No.1.

On Sunday 1st June it's synthesizers at the ready as Bandon goes electro with Le Galaxie. Ireland's foremost electronic band promise to lift the mood and get you dancing like no other band can! The four-piece Dublin band have earned a five-star reputation for getting it right, time and again with recent ceiling-melting performances at Electric Picnic and the Olympia. Kormac's Big Band also takes to the main stage on Sunday. This band have been described by BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac as, 'the most bizarre set-up I've ever seen - but it really works.. Kormac's 11-piece live band will really rock the joint with turntables, a barbershop quartet, drums, double bass, trombone, clarinet, trumpet and banjo.

The Bandon Music Festival also includes a free festival music trail with live bands playing in participating pubs throughout the town on Friday, Saturday and Sunday with full bar extensions, so you can party the night away in style.

Tickets are on sale now from usual outlets priced just €12 for an adult day pass €20 for an adult weekend pass, €8 teenager day pass €12 teenager weekend pass and accompanied under-14's are free.
