Sounds Like Summer: Fingal Festival in a Van

In this new collaboration with Fingal County Council and supported by Creative Ireland, Festival in a Van gets on the road again this June for a six-day tour called Sounds Like Summer: Fingal Festival in a Van, to celebrate this year’s summer solstice and create some sunny joy with local communities in the area – bringing music, spoken word, and dance to every corner of Fingal.  Taking place over six days during the last two weekends of June, this tour is a free, open air, open-to-all celebration of Fingal’s community spirit and creativity.

With the festival landing like a celestial ship on the front door of many of Fingal’s diverse communities, audiences are invited to bring their own picnic blanket, slap on the sunscreen, and enjoy some of Ireland’s best talent who were born or are based in Fingal County. 

From housing estates to public parks to community gardens to refugee accommodation, all are welcome to participate in the festivities. Get the summer going with the Fingal Festival in a Van!
