The Sherkin Island-based festival will return for this year’s June bank holiday weekend.
Open Ear festival will take place this year from June 3-5 after a two-year hiatus. Tickets will go on sale Friday April 1.
The 2019 festival saw acts such as Donal Dineen, Radie Peat, Gadget & Cloud, Maria Somerville and Jennifer Walshe making an appearance, playing across five stages over the three day weekend. For the last edition of Open Ear, weekend passes cost 170 euro and day tickets were 55.
A shorter, one-day version of the festival took place in August 2021 on the island. Named Emerge, the event featured performances from Bodycam, Eliza, Colonel Modules and T-Woc.
More information such as the full lineup and ticket prices for this year’s festival is expected to drop soon. To keep up to date, check out the Open Ear website here.
