Exciting new Irish acts added to BARE in the Woods 2016

A raft of new Irish acts join New York hip hop legends The Sugarhill Gang for this year’s BARE in the Woods Festival, taking place at Garryhinch Woods, Co Laois, on June 11-12 this summer. Located on a for-purpose festival site – which features specially built permanent stages, a Lake Arena and a full size Irish Crannog – BARE in the Woods 2016 is delighted to announce, Raglans, Jupe, Fangclub, Mongrel State, Made by Pete, CPNHGN, Megacone, Laurie Shaw, Damsel, Whiskey Dick, Gemma Bradley, Peter Njihia.

BARE in the Woods will also welcome Tony Clayton Lea’s Culture Vultures to the festival for the first time, along with a soon-to-be-announced Comedy and Spoken Word line-up. BARE16 will also feature a Food Village, Dance Island and Kids Area.

Already announced for the growing boutique festival are Natty Wailer, The Pale, King Kong Company, August Wells, Fox Jaw, Dah Jevu, Pretty Beast, Slow Motion Heroes, Everything Shook, My Tribe Your Tribe, Suan and Cua. With a mission statement to “to create on of the best boutique festival sites in Europe and bring an event that has something different to offer the festival season in Ireland”, the BARE festival site compliments its natural surroundings using timber sourced from the site itself to build some very creative stages and structures. It is also one of the best priced festivals in Ireland with camping tickets for the 24-hour event priced at only €40 for a Day Ticket and €50 with camping.

A winner of an Irish Festival Award this year for ‘Best One Day Festival’, 80% of timber used for the festival has come from storm damaged trees and has been milled on the site by the BARE crew. The site itself is nestled beside the River Barrow and overlooked by the Slieve Bloom mountains and features a traditional Irish Crannog and a lake with a party island that will run late in to the night. Further announcements are due for BARE16 next month in April.

BARE in the Woods is located only 50 minutes from Dublin and is accessible via motorway networks to all major Irish cities in under two hours. The site is located close to Portarlington railway station and serviced by Dublin Coach, with a 24-hour service to Dublin, Limerick and Cork.
