Wicklow County Council presents Summer Songs: Inland & By The Sea, a series of live music events taking place throughout the summer.
There will be five days of music at five different outdoor venues across County Wicklow, featuring amazing bands who are from, living in, or with strong connections to Wicklow. Artists include Hothouse Flowers, Kíla, Pillow Queens, Wyvern Lingo, Mary Coughlan, plus many more
County Wicklow Arts Officer, Jenny Sherwin, said the gigs will be intimate with crowds of between 200 to 500 only at each event where restrictions allow – but there will be no compromise on production values. She added: ”It’s a rare opportunity to catch these musicians in boutique crowds where the audience’s view will be up close and personal in these unique settings.”
Wicklow County Council is proud to bring live music and performances by these local musicians back to the community for the first time since the industry was shut down due to the pandemic. There is lots to choose from and something for everyone with traditional Irish, classical, opera, rock and contemporary gigs all on sale.
There will be strict event control for the safest experience for our artists and patrons. Should any event be cancelled for any reason due to COVID-19, a full refund will apply.
