SugarBeat is set to bring some excellent headliners to Tuam on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 August, including The Stunning, Ryan Sheridan, Hometown and Original Rudeboys. Alongside these are established Irish acts such as Amazing Apples, Big Generator and Rackhouse Pilfer.
Festival director, Shane Donnellan, says he’s delighted to be bringing a large music event to County Galway. “The West of Ireland needs more outdoor events like this and we’re happy to be bringing some of Ireland’s biggest acts to Galway for SugarBeat. We found out last year that there’s a great appetite for a music festival in Galway, when Damien Dempsey performed to a sold out SugarBeat Fest. After last year’s success, we decided to give it another go and make it bigger and better.”
The festival site is located in the buzzing centre of Tuam town. There are a number of local pubs and clubs affiliated with the festival. For a full list of participants, visit sugarbeat.ie.
As well as the musical element of the festival, foodies will appreciate the inclusion of a continental market, featuring vendors and artisan producers from around the country. Some of the best locally sourced food will be available throughout the festival.
A shuttle bus is available from Galway to the festival site in Tuam. For full details, visit sugarbeat.ie. Day tickets are available for the festival at the price of €35 for Saturday’s concert and €30 for Sunday.
