Gallery – Friday, day one of Forest Fest / a selection of some of the acts that played and some set-lists – Emo Court, County Laois, 21.07.2023


So Forest Fest final came around and kicked off to a wet Friday, which kind of put a dampener on things, no-one likes starting of a festival wet but hey no-one can control the weather , but once gates opened and the bands started around 5pm this was all blown away and spirts were lifted as the area started to fill and other stages the same.
This is only the festivals second year and what a line up it boasted, Friday was to treat people to the likes of Vendetta Love / Motion Sickness / Allie Sherlock / Ash / Peter Hook / The Proclaimers / Nik Kershaw and main stage headliners James.
There was lots more through out the day on 6 stages including lots for the kids also with the circus tent .
