Earagail Arts Festival looks forward to welcoming you in 2019.
DONEGAL’S premier summer festival on the Wild Atlantic Way will take place next year from July 10 to 28.
Earagail Arts Festival’s 30th anniversary was filled with many highlights from the Wild Atlantic Weekend on Malin’s Village Green to the Mountain Stage at Swell Music & Arts Festival on Arranmore Island. One of the biggest successes of the this year’s festival was Foyle Punt, presented by The Local Group, a new co-commissioned site specific theatre piece which sold out seven shows in four locations.
Other well-attended highlights included the opening partnership with Fidget Feet’s Irish Aerial Dance Festival, the open air event Forme Uniche, and the second annual Donegal International Folk & Roots Weekend, which featured a wide range of artists from both home and abroad.
As this year’s 23 days of music, theatre, visual arts, film, literature, circus and carnival on Ireland’s North West Atlantic seaboard came to a close, the wheels were already set in motion for next year’s event.
Artistic Director and CEO, Paul Brown said: “The sustainability and reach of the Earagail Arts Festival over 30 years is due to the partnership and hard work of many organisations across Donegal and around the world. Equally, the festivals’ continued and future success lies in the participation of audiences and artists from near and far who make the Earagail Arts Festival such a passionate, vibrant and joyous celebration of cultural diversity, human interaction and artistic endeavour. ”
