The best party of the Summer returns on the 15th, 16th and 17th of July on the luxurious grounds of Palmerstown House Estate, Co Kildare.
Forever Young Festival- where the 80’s comes alive!!!
This Summer see’s the return of ‘Forever Young Festival’, an event that brings the explosive 80’s back to life, in full neon glory. Awarded ‘Best Line Up’ and ‘Best Medium Sized Festival’ in Ireland (2019), Forever Young 2022 promises to be one you will not forget. Create forever memories with timeless bands from the 80’s such as headliners Marti Pellow (Wet Wet Wet), Holly Johnson (Frankie Goes to Hollywood) and OMD alongside an array of fellow luminaries and a star-studded line up of over 30 original 80’s iconic artists, taking to the stage on the 15-17th July 2022. Sing along to Tiffany, Paul Young, Haircut 100, Wendy James, Nik Kershaw, Bananarama, Paul Carrack, In Tua Nua, Heather Small, 5 Star, The Boomtown Rats and many more.
This is a high-end adult party weekend par excellence, an unforgettable musical experience. A mixtape weekend where colleagues, friends and family can relive their youth, pull on their leg warmers and ra ra skirts, don the shoulder pads, roll up their suit sleeves along with mirrored aviator shades, and enjoy the 80’s all over again. This is a trip in a time machine, and true to their era, a classic DeLorean and Knight Rider ‘Kit’ car welcome you at the main arena entrance. The retro gaming tent is another nostalgia fest with Space Invaders, Pac man, all the original arcade games that set the foundation of all gaming.
Combine the incredible experience with luxury camping, flushing toilets, on site glamping with comfortable beds, duvets, power to charge your devices so you can be sure to take as many photos as possible to cherish the memories, hot showers, and golf buggy lifts around the site. Forever Young strives to make your comfort and enjoyment their number one priority.
Hotel and bus packages are available, so no need to hunt around on how to get here, where to stay etc, but for the whole experience, its definately worth looking at staying on site. Silk Road Tents have a 10% glamping discount offer currently running using the code foreveryoung10, so treat yourself to comfy beds, duvets etc and glamp in style.
Covid has been hard on so many, it’s time to let the hair down, loosen the stress levels and get lost in the music of our favourite era. The huge site allows for a spacious layout, so bring your camping chairs and blankets! The festival is set on 900 acres, so no one needs to crowd together if they are covid wary.
It’s impossible to put into words, but something very special happens at Forever Young, the attendees at the inaugural event in 2019 described it as ‘a field in Kildare, that just overflowed with thrills and love’. We hope to see you there!
Along with our ethos of being an eco-friendly, climate-aware run event, the festival was also launched solely to raise funds for a new animal welfare charity in Ireland. “Animal Welfare and Veterinary Care Ireland”, charity no: #20206152. All single use plastics are banned, so the beautiful site stays clean, festival goers don’t walk through a sea of waste, none of the waste goes to landfill, as this is a festival with a heart and a conscience.
