It's difficult to look at the window this grey, rainy morning and get yourself in the summer festival frame of mind but the first details for this summer's events are starting to trickle through - the latest being David Gray's addition to the line-up at the Westport Festival of Music and Food.
The Westport Festival will take place across the weekend of the 28th and 29th of June and promises a fantastic fun filled music and food extravaganza with over 70 artists and comedians performing across five stages, an amazing food village and quality onsite camping in a truly relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. And the entrance to Westport House is located in the centre of Westport town, which is ideal for festival goers who want to continue to party when the festival finishes each night.
Music acts confirmed so far include David Gray, Bryan Adams, Sinead O’Connor, Kool & The Gang, The Divine Comedy, The Jim Jones Revue, The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, Kila, The Selecter starring Pauline Black & Gaps Hendrickson, Bjorn Again, Tony Joe White, The Bootleg Beatles, The Hot Sprockets, The Kilfenora Ceile Band and Alien Envoy (Nick Kelly of The Fat Lady Sings new project) with many more acts to be confirmed over the next few weeks and months.
Day Tickets (Saturday or Sunday) €76 (including booking fee)
