It’s 31 years since the first Feile Festival in Tipperary and in a year like no other, they present a series of events like no other, Feile Forever.
The Feile Forever Series will take place across Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th September located in Ireland’s most beautiful locations Birdhill, Co. Tipperary at the foot of the Silvermines.
The musical lineup across the weekend includes: Jerry Fish, The Frank & Walters, Paul Noonan, The Funk Junkies, The Alvin Purple Experience with Host Will Leahy and Dj NDT will all line out for Feile Forever 2021. All the shows will happen in a specially built outdoor concert venue from the same team who revived Feile at Semple Stadium in 2018 and 2019.
Promoters CWB said, “After two great years in Thurles we had huge plans for Feile 2020 and 2021 but alas a Stadium show isn’t possible this year but hopefully the Feile Forever nights will fill the gap until next year.”
