Beyond The Pale – 2023

June 16 - June 18

Following a hugely well-received sold-out first edition in June last year; BEYOND THE PALE music & arts festival returns to the spectacular surrounds of Glendalough Estate this June 16th – 18th.


Headlining the exciting and eclectic bill will be Living Legend Grace Jones, upbeat pop heroes HOT CHIP, Grammy-winning funkster THUNDERCAT and electronic pioneers JON HOPKINS and LEFTFIELD – who will be playing their first Irish show in over five years.


The three-day camping festival will also host American soul legend CANDI STATON who will be performing her last ever European tour, as well as top-drawer Irish performers like PILLOW QUEENS, FOR THOSE I LOVE, LE BOOM, SAINT SISTER, MANO LE TOUGH and TOLÜ MAKAY.

Full lineup info available here.


The family-friendly festival has discounted tickets for children and takes place in the stunning surrounds of Glendalough Estate with its sweeping valleys and forests, hosting performances across seven areas over the three days of the weekend. In addition to the music, there will be Cabaret, Comedy, Theatre, Art Installations, Wellness, Yoga, Tournaments & Games Areas and delicious food & drink with over 150 acts in total to be revealed in the coming months.


Our wonderful glamping experience is back with Silk Road Tents and Pitch Perfect joining us this year. For an extra fee, you can get a prime spacious location, phone charging service, access to a carpark to campsite buggy service, complimentary shower, hot tubs, sauna, massages & of course, posh loos!
