Less than a week after Electric Picnic 2021 was refused by Laois County Council to take place next month, 'It Takes A Village' in Cork has announced its line-up for their outdoor festival, which will go ahead as planned.

'It Takes A Village' will be returning to Trabolgan Holiday Village in Cork from Friday, 17 to Sunday, 19 September 2021.

Early bird tickets for one of the Republic of Ireland's first outdoor music festivals since 2020 will go on sale at 12 pm on Wednesday, August 11 via the festival's mailing list. Tickets are priced at €189 per person, while general sale tickets will cost €209, available from 12 pm on Thursday, August 12.

Tickets can be purchased in groups of between two to nine people and includes three nights accommodation in a self-catering house, a weekend festival ticket, plus private parking. The festival is strictly over 21s.

The all-Irish lineup for 'It Takes A Village' has also been announced. It includes a mix of music acts, comedians and podcast stars such as Blindboy, Those Nervous Animals, Gemma Dunleavy, Fish Go Deep, Yenkee, John Francis Flynn, TPM, Sinead Quinlan and many, many more.

All of the performances and events will take place outdoors and all attendees and performers will have to adhere to strict COVID regulations.

In order to be able to attend 'It Takes A Village', a digital Covid Cert OR a Negative Antigen Test OR a Negative PCR Test will be required.

In the past week, Electric Picnic and Irish advocacy group Give Us The Night have written open letters calling for the events industry in Ireland to reopen.

Last weekend, up to 10,000 attended a music festival in Belfast.

'It Takes A Village' is part-funded by the Live Performance Support Scheme from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
