There Is A Brand New Comedy and Music Festival Coming Next Month

From the people who bring us Electric Picnic, they are now bringing us a brand new comedy and music festival.

Over two night on July 20th and 21st the new festival Folly will take place. Folly will be set in the old ruins of Cullahill Castle In Laois.

This will be the first ever gender balanced festival across both music and comedy. The festival will host an equal amount of female and male musicians, performers and comedians, as well as some of the best up and coming talent in the country.

On Friday night, Folly fans will be treated to music from the Nomadic harmony folk duo The Lost Brothers and the young fresh talent of singer-songwriter Curtis Walsh. Holly Macve, who is known for her spellbinding country and western ballads and alt-pop singer-songwriter Molly Sterling will also perform.

If it’s a belly laugh you want, The Folly is where you need to be on this magical weekend on Saturday night, as some of Ireland’s finest comedy prodigies and up and coming comedy gems take to the stage over the 2 day festival, including the hilarious Kevin McGahern, Ashlee Bentley, Mark McConnell, Niamh Marron, Eddie Mullarkey, Grace Mulvey, Ronan Grace and Sharon Mannion.

It’s not just comedy and music though. On Saturday you can enjoy a walk up the Cullahill mountain, a farmer’s market, village parade, games for the kids, storytelling, a tour of the hidden history of Cullahill Castle and the first ever Paddy O’s Irish Porridge Making Championship, with Rachel Allen on hand to judge.

Tickets for The Folly go on sale Friday 15th June via Ticketmaster.

Early bird: €40 for weekend plus booking fee (available until 14th July)

Daily tickets: €25 plus booking fee
