It appears that the folks behind the Electric Picnic’s Body & Soul arena are planning a soiree beyond Stradbally.

Per their website, the Body & Soul Solstice Weekend will take place at Ballinlough Castle, Clonmellon, Co. Meath from June 19 to 21, a venue previously used for the Garden Party and Life festivals and for a Tiesto gig in 2008.

There’s very little on the website about the event bar a spiel about creaing “a vibrant sense of community” and awakening “a sense of connection between people and the environmment, the artist and the viewer, the world of dreams and the the natural world we inhabit.” The B&S organisers do say, however, that they are looking for people who wish to take part in “volunteers programme, themed camps, collective art pieces, open mikes, speakers corners and more.”

UPDATE Yes, folks, there will be music at this weekender too. Full list of acts to come.
