David Kitt, Ailbhe Reddy, CMAT & Junior Brother are playing a socially distant festival this month

Words: Dylan Murphy

Après Palooza is due to take place this month in Tullamore.

Today, it has been revealed that a number of Irish musicians, comedians and DJs will be performing at a socially-distanced festival this month in Offaly.

Après Palooza will take place in Joe Lee’s Bar in the heart of Tullamore. It will be converted into a ski lodge with ten individually curated events taking place across three days from 10 – 12 December. It’ll see some of Ireland’s most exciting talent bring a bit of cheer in a difficult year. Each event will last 90 minutes and the series will be hosted by MayKay. Complimentary whiskey, hot cider or mulled wine will be available from their ski-gondola bar.

Featuring on the lineup is David Kitt, Ailbhe Reddy, CMAT and Junior Brother. Comedians featuring across the three days include Joanne McNally, Neil Delamare and Fred Cooke, with Boots & Kats, Bedlam DJs and Steve Reddy spinning tunes over the three days.

Cherrycool Promotions founder, Cillian Stewart said:

“As a responsible promoter with more than 15 years experience in the events industry with a safe track record, we are committed to fully adhering to all relevant Government guidelines that will be in situ this December. This project has been part-funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht Sport and Media from the Live Performance Support Scheme. Without this support, we couldn’t have brought these 10 live outdoor shows to Offaly so we are very grateful of the departments pilot scheme which is helping a crucial re-emergence of safe & responsible cultural and social events all over Ireland that are critical to the wellbeing of the Irish public. We are delighted to be showcasing incredible talent not only from Offaly but from all over Ireland.”

Tickets go on sale Tuesday 8 December. You will need to register for tickets in advance from their website to qualify for ticket information – very limited capacity.
