Taking place for the sixth year at Killruddery House & Gardens on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th July, in Bray, Co. Wicklow, the Groove Festival offers a plethora of music, comedy, culture, food, drinks and family activities.
Music headliners include Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Heather Small – The Voice of M People, The Stunning, The Riptide Movement and Something Happens. The Sony Xperia stage will host a bunch of new acts with The Eskies and REWS headlining.
As temperatures are due to hit the late 20s on Saturday and Sunday, festival goers are reminded to bring sunscreen, wear hats, and bring water bottles ready to be topped up from site taps.
Groovers will be able to get shade in the magnificence of the Killruddery Gardens along with a covered area at the Little Top where all the kids activities will take place. Sunscreen will be plentiful with local charity Purple House providing sprays in the family area.
Gates open 12.30pm daily until 10.30pm.

To quench the thirsty festival fans Hop House 13, Gordon’s Pink Gin and a vast array of drinks from cider to beer will be available.
Those coming via DART to Bray can hop on a shuttle (small fee applies) that runs every 30 mins from the station to the site, the last shuttle will leave the site 30 minutes before the final DART departs Bray at 11.30pm. Those driving can park on site (small fee applies) meaning they can leave the site, head to the car and back in again with ease. The site is less than 2kn from the N11 and a 10 min drive from the M50.
