New Two Day Music Festival Announced For Kildare This August
A new and exciting two day festival has been announced for Kildare this August – The Playing Fields.
The Stunning and The 4 of Us will headline the debut festival weekend which takes place August 24 – 25, 2019 at Clane GAA Grounds, Co. Kildare. They will be joined by The Frank and Walters, Jerry Fish, Declan O’Rourke, The 2 Johnnies and Dublin Gospel Choir with more to be announced on over the coming weeks.
Festival goers can expect a weekend filled with hit after hit as Ireland’s greatest musicians take to the stage. Fan favourites from the acts headlining include The Stunning’s “Brewing Up A Storm” , The 4 of Us’ “Mary” , Jerry Fish’s “Celebrate”, The Frank and Walters’ “After All” to Declan O’Rourke’s “Galileo” alongside many more.
The Stunning headline the The Playing Fields on Saturday, August 24 following a brilliant 2018 which saw the band release number one album Twice Around the World and play a host of sold out shows and headline slots at festivals. The band are most definitely back, sounding as fresh as ever.
Joining The Stunning on the Saturday are The Frank and Walters and Jerry Fish. One of Ireland’s most recognisable alternative rock bands, The Frank and Walters continue to sell out venues across the UK, Europe and the US, and their records, both new and classic, sell worldwide. Jerry Fish on the other hand has released a catalogue of hits from his various multi platinum selling albums and will bring his famous live energy to The Playing Fields stage.
Northern Irish legends The 4 Of Us are set to headline the festival on Sunday, August 25. They shot to early fame with their debut album Songs for the Tempted, which featured the massive hits “Mary” and “Drag My Bad Name Down”. The 4 Of Us were recently listed No.7 in TV3’s ‘Top 10 Best Irish Bands Of All Time’ and the Murphy brothers have notched up an enviable catalogue of timeless songs, including six top 20 Irish charting albums.
Declan O’Rourke, The 2 Johnnies and the Dublin Gospel Choir will also take to The Playing Fields festival stage on Sunday. O’Rourke, a dynamic performer, is a highly successful multi platinum selling Irish artist who has released 5 hugely popular albums and performs sold out tours across the country and abroad.
The 2 Johnnies are best known for their comedy sketches and songs about all things Irish. They’ve racked up over 8 million views on their YouTube channel. Meanwhile, every episode of their podcast has gone to No.1 in the Irish charts and the duo have sold out shows around the country.
Dublin Gospel Choir then will uplift and energise with powerful voices and rich harmonies. They will be sure to raise the roof and leave their audiences shouting for more.
