Townlands Carnival’s hidden jewel, the Sibín Stage, returns to the atmospheric and magical woods of Rusheen Farm Estate, Co Cork, this July 20 – 22.
A quite different experience within an already sumptuous festival experience, the music on the Sibín Stage is very much in tune with its surroundings and habitat; evoking backwoods parties with amazing organic music, folky fun, designed and to be enjoyed with inhibition and abandon.
The Latchiko’s are the very originators of Gyp-Hop (Gaelic gypsy hip-hop!); blending a raw mix of virtuoso violin, spoken word and raw driving Gaelic beats. Combined with the Carny Villains – a six piece theatrical band from Bristol known for their raucous blend of stomping swing, ska and Balkan-style folk – these two will set the tone for what the Sibín Stage is all about over the weekend’s festivities.
