20th – 22nd July 2018 

Lost in a world of luscious green, where the grass cradles your footfalls and the trees reach toward the heavens, you’ll find a festival unlike any other. Returning once again, Townlands Carnival is set to be bigger, better and bolder than the year before.

While you walk the ancient woodlands and valleys near Cork’s old Rusheen Farm estate, surrounded by lakes, follies and tree-lined green fields, we encourage you to enjoy the sun with friends and family while soaking in all the entertainment we have on offer.

We’re cramming music, art and entertainment into the best Irish festival event, set across three days this summer. Pairing established artists with upcoming talents, we plan to showcase acts from all musical genres, including everything from acoustic to electronic, reggae, folk and hip hop, with a special focus on cross genre or multimedia artists. Our growing roster of musical virtuosos already includes the unforgettable Sister Sledge, a thumping DJ set from Leftfield, the return of the ultimate on stage performers King Kong Company and the gypsy jazz of The Eskies, with many more names to be announced.

But we’re not just about music. With art installations covering a variety of sculptors, painters and visual artists, we aim to put the focus on the imagination and creation of the Cork community and beyond and the different ways in which they express themselves.

Speaking of passion, we’re huge on the environment and giving back to Mother Nature, so join us for talks on how we can all contribute to a greener planet. We also have yoga and dance classes and with a huge interest in local artisanal delis and restaurants, there truly is something for everyone.


We take pride in creating a thriving environment for three days every year, where emerging talents can flourish in a nurturing setting, whether it be a brand-new guitar band or DJ, a young sculptor or an experimental foodie with a passion for sharing their creations with the world. We’re building a community here at Townlands Carnival – come be a part of it.
