The band received a whopping 4-star review in the Irish Times and fantastic reviews with Hot Press, Goldenplec.com, and TheLastMixedTape.com. Join them as they perform for the first time this summer.
Also on the bill on 27th & 28th August are musical talents Maija Sofia and Callistan
Maija’s debut album ‘Bath Time’ brought her to national attention when it was nominated for the Choice Music Prize in 2019. Callistan is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer – previously of queer-pop group ELM.
On the September bill, Pillow Queens will perform tracks from their critically acclaimed debut record ‘In Waiting’ released last September. Their record received exceptional reviews in Irish Times, The Sunday Times. The album gained them the attention to perform on James Corden’s The Late Late Show in the USA.

Performing on the same day will be Irish electronic producer Art of Algebra. Dani Larkin’s 2021 debut album ‘Notes From A Maiden Warrior’ is an amazing meld of traditional folk and Irish mythology.

Speaking about the previous July event, Co-founder of SoFFT Productions and festival creator Caroline Duke says: “It was a truly magical experience, we had a captivating and engaging audience throughout the weekend. The holistic programming was a huge hit with punters arriving early to take part and staying until the late hours to enjoy the live music. We got such incredible feedback over the weekend and we couldn’t have asked for a better start to our summer programme!
We are SO excited for our August lineup – We are all massive Soda Blonde fans and this will be their first live gig since the album came out in July, so we’re thrilled to have them with us. To top it off, we have Maija Sofia and Callistan on the bill, so we’re just over the moon they’ll be with us too. It really will be something very special.”
