New indoor music festival for East Cork

Friday, 1st December, 2017 10:42am

Forget the tents, this is a different type of music festival. 
This coming April, there’s something happening in Cork that will change the way people think about festivals in Ireland.

From Friday 13 - Sunday 15 April, It Takes A Village drops itself on to the landscape in the idyllic and pastoral surroundings of Trabolgan, East Cork.
It Takes A Village is different in that 150 self-catering houses and apartments will be on offer as well as 35 fully-serviced campervan sites, contained in Trabolgan Holiday Village. 
There is no camping in muddy fields here, as the booking includes accommodation and unlimited access to the huge variety of entertainment. It’s a residents-only affair for the festival weekend, with a limited amount of day tickets on Sunday. This event is strictly over 21s.
The first announcement from festival organisers features an abundance of eclectic artists like Young Father, Andrew Weatherall, Talos, Fujiya & Miyagi, Brian Deady and Nialler9 as well as others. 
The village will feature three main venues, as well as a multitude of pop-up stages all over the 120 acre site. The swimming pool, with its wavemaker, slide, hot tub, and balmy conditions will host some steamy tropical party tunes from supreme DJs on Saturday and Sunday mornings, with some amazing aquatic audio and synchronized sounds. 
All leisure activities at Trabolgan like go-karting, archery, five-a-side soccer, zip line, climbing walls, crazy golf and par three golf will operate during the daytime over the weekend.
Ticket prices range from €205 - €255 and go on sale Thursday 7 December at 4pm from ittakesavillage.fm.  
It Takes A Village is brought to you by Cork pomoters The Good Room, Joe Kelly and Ed O’Leary. They are the guys behind Live At St Luke’s, Crosstown Drift and Fleischmann In The Glen at Cork Midsummer Festival, as well as many top class events and parties over the years.
