Earagail Arts Festival looks forward to welcoming you in 2020.
DONEGAL’S premier summer festival on the Wild Atlantic Way will take place next year from 9 – 26 July.
Earagail Arts Festival’s 31st year was filled with many highlights from the annual Wild Atlantic Weekend on Malin’s Village Green to the Mór Music & Arts Trail on Arranmore Island.
One of the biggest successes of the this year’s festival was Citadels of The Sun/Dúnfoirt na Gréine, a collaboration where Ireland and India met in music and arts, presented in association with Jodphur RIFF Festival in Rajasthan, India.
The second instalment of this collaboration was a very successful night-time illuminated street parade by LUXE which lit up the streets of Letterkenny during the summer.
Other well-attended highlights included the outdoor spectacle that was Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale in Letterkenny and Greencastle by An Grianán Theatre, two sold out nights by members of the legendary Celtic rock group Horslips, Peggy Seeger, the annual Donegal International Folk & Roots Weekend, which featured a wide range of artists from both home and abroad, such as Morgan O’Kane, Joan As Police Woman and many more.
As this year’s 19 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 festival’s 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. ”
