We’re happy to present a new playlist series, highlighting the best Irish music at summer festivals.


Body&Soul has gone from a wonderfully weird little festival, to an event that hold its own with the best in the country, while keeping its quirks and eccentricities. We caught up with one of the head bookers this week if you’d like an insight into how the festival came together click here.

They’re back in Ballinlough Castle, Co Westmeath once again this summer, taking over the old grounds for the solstice on June 23 – 25. Click here for tickets.

Mykki Blanco, Sleaford Mods, Vitalic, Optimo and Austra are just a selection of the international talent coming to the Castle this summer. However, it’s the local talent each year that you stumble upon that seems to leave a lasting mark on revellers.

In this new series we look at the homegrown artists performing at festivals, putting together a cohesive playlist of their best and newest tracks to get you in the mood for the summer of music ahead.

First up, we have the selection from the beautifully strange Body&Soul.

Body&Soul tickets are available now.
