Just when you thought there was no way anyone else would bother trying to get into the summer festival groove, along comes Castle Palooza.

Castle Palooza will be held on August 4th and 5th at Charleville Castle, Tullamore, Co Offaly (the place the late, much missed Mor once called home) and will be headlined by Sister Sledge. Yah! Having seen Chic slay the hip kids at Sonar last summer, I’m all for classic disco.

In addition, the line up contains an eclectic mix of Ireland’s home-grown
talent and will feature: Neosupervital, The Chapters, Mainline, Star Little
Thing, The Gorgeous Colours, The Chakras, Red Kid, The Spikes, Fight Like
Apes, Sickboy, Gavin Glass, Royseven, Angel Pier, Springbreak, Daves Radio,
The Loafing Heroes, The Aftermath, The Ok’s, Corsairs, Moebius, The
Ministry, Martin Staunton Band, Prison Love & Marian Bradfield, with more
acts to be announced. There is also the welcome addition of Frightened
Rabbit, one of Glasgow’s most promising Indie acts.

Then, there are the facilities. Take note rival festival promoters.

For your ticket price you can also enjoy hot showers, great camping facilities,
a full bar, exhibitions, performance and lots of other surprises. (Not to
mention proper flushing loos!).

Tickets are €125 (two days with camping) and are now on sale.
