Body&Soul Festival Adds to Line-Up


The festival that’s “full of surprises”, Body&Soul, has announced more acts to its impressive line-up, which already features the always captivating Goldfrapp, Brit-nominee John Grant, and the acclaimed dance outfit King Kong Company.


Max Romeo, one of Jamaica’s most provocative lyricists, has been added to the main stage, while the ‘Midnight Circus’ will play host to British techno maestro James Holden. The much talked about Seattle-based hip-hop collective Shabazz Palaces will also descend on the eclectic festival.

Music aside, previous Body&Soulers will be in the know that its annual open-air ‘Masquerade Ball’ is a must-attend event, so grab a mask and get ready for the ball of the summer!

Body&Soul takes place on the summer solstice weekend, June 20-22 at Ballinlough Castle, County Westmeath. For full details and ticket sales visit the Body&Soul website.
