News: The Fleadh stage line-up for Forest Fest Emo village in Co Laois Ireland this July is finalised.

The line-up for the Fleadh stage at Forest Fest in Emo village in Co Laois this July is finalised.
The Forest Fleadh is a unique initiative for an Irish music festival as it presents a platform to solely
showcase the best of Irish trad and folk.
The overall Forest Fest programme features an eclectic mix of over 80 artists across four stages on
the weekend of July 21 to 23.
The idea to create the Forest Fleadh, a veritable festival within a festival, is that of the event founder
and promoter, Philip Meagher.

“Following on from the success of our inaugural Forest Fest last summer it was evident that the
renaissance of Irish trad alongside the burgeoning enthusiasm among the innovative new talent in
the genre deserved its own special place at our festival. We collaborated with people like Laois trad
supremos Dale McKay and Ruaidhrí O’Tiarnaigh to curate what I believe to be the finest gathering of
trad and folk talent in the country this year perhaps outside of the Fleadh Cheoil,” says Philip.
The Forest Fleadh programme which will be hosted by Sharon Shannon speaks for itself.
