There's Going To Be An Amazing Music And Food Festival In Dun Laoghaire Harbour This August

We're not sure whether we're more excited by the music or the food...


The August Bank Holiday is already one of the busiest weekends in the city – and now, the decision of what to do with your weekend has become that little bit more difficult, thanks to the announcement of the awesome Beatyard festival. Previously taking place in the city centre, Beatyard is moving away from the Bernard Shaw and Twisted Pepper and setting up shop in Dun Laoghaire.

The Bodytonic event doesn't just feature incredible musical headliners, with heavy-hitters such as Four Tet, Neneh Cherry and Lindstrøm leading the line – but it also features the super-intriguing Eatyard, where you can eat and drink from the likes of 3fe, Staple Foods, Uozo's Fish Shack and a Brewtonic Beer Hall.

Teddy's Ice Cream will also be represented on site; it is Dun Laoghaire, after all.

The full lineup is below. It's not an easy weekend for which to make any commitments, but we're definitely feeling drawn towards the seaside right now...
