KnockanStockan will not be taking place this summer

“It’s not goodbye for good, only goodbye for now.”

KnockanStockan has been a staple of Irish festival season for 13 years. Situated at Blessington Lakes in County Wicklow, the independent festival was an integral part of the local community, raising thousands for numerous community and youth initiatives within the area.

They’ve now confirmed that they will be taking a break for the foreseeable future.

In a statement the festival said, “There’s no one reason why a good thing comes to an end, nor are we sure if this is the end.”

“To be honest we don’t know what this is. All we do know is that KnockanStockan is too important to us and to so many others to just do for the sake of it, without the love and care and passion that made it what it was. If KnockanStockan is going to thrive again it’s going to need to change and that change is going to take time. We’re going to take that time and make sure that what we do next is the right thing for each of us and the right thing for KnockanStockan.”
