Words: Dylan Murphy

The third edition of the festival runs from November 18 – 21 and features an all ages show, with 50 per cent of capacity reserved for young people from socially excluded groups.

Following the success of AVA Festival in Belfast last weekend, it’s full steam ahead with the announcement of further festivals across Ireland. Next up, Spilt Milk have revealed they are returning for their third edition from November 18-21 November in Sligo.

Speaking on the festival co-founder Edel Doherty says, “Spilt Milk is about coming together to enjoy adventurous music and art in the comfortable surroundings of a small town… We’re excited to finally get back to in-person events and are looking forward to welcoming and seeing both familiar and new faces in Sligo this November.”

“Our music line-up features young, compelling and forward-thinking names in Ireland’s rich and varied music scenes,” Doherty continued. “We’re proud to programme with inclusivity and diversity at our core which we heartily believe will lead to deeper and broader shared cultural experiences.”

Attendees will be required to show proof of immunity (EU Digital Vaccine Cert or Certificate of Recovery from COVID-19 within the previous 6 months).
