Taking place in Glendalough Estate in Wicklow from Friday 10 June – Sunday 12, the festival marries naturalistic scenery with the best kind of music to soundtrack the settings.
Ahead of the inaugural edition of the festival this weekend, Beyond The Pale has released its full stage times and timetable of events. Tickets for Beyond The Pale are available from their website now.
With only 5,000 tickets available and a sophisticated approach to curation alongside a god-tier selection of food and drink, it’s built for the heads that keep their ear to the ground but don’t want to compromise on the finer things in life.
Kicking off things on Friday at 17:00 are James Kavanagh and The Mary Wallopers on the Beyond The Plate stage for a special edition of James’ podcast What Did You Eat This Week?
Also at this time, resident DJs Chord Memory, Zonja and Eddie Kay will take to the Strawberry Fields stage while Jio is playing The Big Romance stage.

Emmet Kirwan will perform his cult favourite show Dublin Old School alongside Ian Lloyd Anderson at 20:00 on the Strawberry Fields stage.
