When we started The Needables we wrote down short term and long term plans in what we wanted to achieve. One of those long term goals was to get on the premium artist rota for the Kilkenny Roots Festival. To help start this process we requested to play the free trail set with the expectation it might be a year or so before they let us in...I was wrong!!
So here we are preparing for what is a dream festival to be part of. If there is one thing I recommend to experience in your life is a festival like this one. There is a real sense of togetherness from Artist to Fan. The venues intimate and atmospheric. The location, Ireland at its finest.
We will be taking to the Playright stage at 2pm on the Sunday followed by Marble City at 10pm that night as part of the free trail. Check out all the gigs here.
We will be down there from the saturday to hopefully catch some of the acts before and in between our own gigs.
So don't be mad, celebrate the bank holiday weekend in Kilkenny and be warned it is addictive!
