Thankfully, this summer has been full of sunshine AND music festivals. This new one is a specially designed open-air summer series made up of live music, performance, spoken word, and is hitting Dublin next month.

Announced this Monday afternoon, 'Meadows Festival' will take place at Irish Museum of Modern Art, Royal Hospital Kilmainham over three days and nights this August.

The music festival will be a series of eight socially distanced events taking place on one main stage during an afternoon, matinee or evening performance. The line-up of the festival includes David Keenan, Niamh Reegan, CMAT, Saint Sister, Lisa O'Neill, John Francis Flynn and Dundalk 5-piece Just Mustard.

Similar to last month's successful Pilot Festival, tickets will be available for each show in groups made up of either 4 or 6 persons only. Each group will be assigned a numbered pod at the event.

The program will celebrate the diversity of talent nationwide, with a focus on supporting and celebrating emerging Irish artists alongside established performers. As well as six music shows, there will also be Orchestral performances from Glasshouse, and two live spoken word and podcast shows on Saturday and Sunday afternoons under the banner of All Curious Minds.

'Meadows Festival' will take place on Friday August 20, Saturday August 21, and Sunday August 22. Tickets are priced from €19.10 per person and will go on sale Wednesday, 21st July at 9 am via Ticketmaster. This is an over 18s event only.
