Kaleidoscope Is Ireland's New Three Day Family-Friendly Festival

Kaleidoscope Is Ireland's New Three Day Family-Friendly Festival
Taking a child to a festival is a great way to spend time together as a family, exploring and experiencing new and exciting things.
And for those who love nothing more than being immersed in festival attire and sleeping in a tent, this festival will be right up your street. 
Kaleidoscope, which has been created by Electric Picnic organisers, is a three-day family-friendly festival that will take place this June. 
The three-day music and arts festival will take place in the surrounds of Russborough House, Co. Wicklow, and sounds like a great place to relax and enjoy time together as a family.  
Taking place from Friday 28th to Sunday 30th June, the camping festival will have six stages featuring Irish and international musicians and DJs, and nine for workshops and the spoken word. 
There will also nature walks, creative workshops, food areas and think talks. 
Aimed at adults, teenagers and children and those with special needs, the festival's creative director Richard Seabrooke said that while other festivals do cater for children, this one, in particular, is aimed at families. 
“It’s giving permission to parents to pack up the car and come camp for three days with us and enjoy all the trappings of a music and arts festival, but also know they can bring their kids to a safe, secure site,” he said.
Talking about the programming, Richard explained that there will be five different age groups: up to four years, five to eight years, nine to 12 and 13 to 16 - and has considered all aspects to ensure the whole family enjoys the three days.  
“If a child knows there’s a carnival open at six o’clock in the morning, goddamnit they’ll be there,” he jokes. “I am really conscious that I don’t want mum or dad to be withered by 6pm,” says Seabrooke.
Ticket information and lineup will be announced shortly. Check out their website here
