Three more fests will be striving to attract Irish festival-goers in the coming weeks.

The Undiscovered Festival will feature unsigned acts and new bands in Roscrea, Co Tipperary on June 29th and 30th, while the Irish Green Gathering is an eco-friendly weekend featuring the likes of Dry County, Ten Past Seven, Somadrone and dozens more in Enniscorthy, Co Wexford from August 17th to 19th.

For those seeking to combine music and surfing, the Cois Fharraige fest may be just the ticket. Taking place in a 4,500-capacity tent overlooking the Atlantic at Kilkee, Co Clare from September 7th to 9th, the festival’s line-up includes such surfer-friendly acts as Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Ocean Colour Scene, The Blizzards, Róisín Murphy, The Enemy, Tom Baxter and the ubiquitous Delorentos.

The budget obviously didn’t stretch to The Beach Boys.
