Why You Need To Bring Your Kids To Beatyard
Returning to its sunny playground in Dun Laoghaire Harbour, Beatyard will be back for another year with an unbelievable line-up over the two-day event.
Now in its fifth year, hipper than hip festival goers will have a choice of three live music stages hosted by Bodytonic, Wigwam and the Lighthouse.
The Beatyard 2019 team have just announced some of the hottest international acts who will be rocking the harbour town with a mix of pop, rock, dance, soul and DJ sets.
Headlining the weekend with electric music, English duo Groove Armada will be playing their first full live band show in Ireland in over ten years on the main stage.
CHVRCHES, Deacon Blue, Basement Jaxx, Primal Scream, The Charlatans and Fun Lovin' Criminals will also play some of their latest hits over the much-anticipated bank holiday weekend.
Dublin's favourite street food market, Eatyard, will have over fifty food and beverage vendors including a rum and gin bar.
But it's not all about the music and food though as past ticket holders will know. There will be fun and games just like in previous years. This year those who crave a rave with their smallies will finally get the chance as Dublin City Mum will be curating a family rave with face painting, glow sticks, bubbles and lots of beats.
More acts are set to be announced including information on Kidsyard, Gamesyard and we are all dying to know the list of vendors setting up camp at Eatyard.
