MUSIC: Top music acts to line up for festival

Brave Giant are heading to Leixlip.

BRAVE Giant, an Indie/Folk band from Longford, will be just one of the top acts taking to the stage at the Leixlip Festival open air music spectacular at the Court Yard Hotel this June Bank Holiday Weekend.

 Over the past 12 months, the band have been blazing a trail, selling out every one of their headline shows while making their TV debut when they appeared on the Late Late Show in March.

Their latest single, 'The Time I Met The Devil', reached Number 2 in the iTunes charts, and their highly anticipated second EP is set for summer release.

Catch them at the Court Yard Hotel who have once again put together a line-up of incredible music talent, on a par with the best entertainment in any major city or music venue - and at a fraction of the cost.

The eagerly-awaited festival will see an amazing line-up of headline acts including Le Galaxie, The Blizzards, The Riptide Movement and the massively popular annual Monday night headliner, Smash Hits, who are guaranteed to rock the yard with a powerful blast of rip-roaring feel-good boogie.

The headline act on Friday, June 2, is Dublin-based Le Galaxie, an electronic dance music band feted as Ireland's best live act. 

For their Court Yard debut, Le Galaxie will be presenting brand new music from their new album, including the first single release, ‘Pleasure’, a sensuous slice of dance pop with powerful vocals.

On Saturday, June 3, Mullingar five piece The Blizzards headline, having taken time out from live performance in recent years. 

There are up to 20 local and national acts and DJs featuring in the 2017 Leixlip Festival line-up at the Court Yard Hotel, according to Laura Moriarty, operations director at the family-run hotel group.

“We have four days and nights of top music and entertainment as part of this year’s Leixlip Festival, and there is literally something for everyone in the family,” she says. “Rock the Yard will again thrill true Irish music fans, and cement our reputation as one of Ireland's top local music festivals as part of the Traditional Leixlip Salmon Festival.”

To enjoy the best live Irish music acts at the 2017 Leixlip Festival, weekend and day pass tickets are now available for ‘Rock the Yard’ on the Courtyard Hotel website http://www.courtyard.ie/ticket-sales.

There are 500 advance purchase weekend tickets for just €30 (plus booking fee), offering four great nights of live music for the price of three. Individual day tickets are also available to buy in advance on the website for €10 or at the gate each day, subject to availability.

Sunday and Monday, from 12-3pm, are family fun times at the Court Yard Hotel, with children’s entertainment and sweet treats. Also, the fabulous Festival Food Court will be cooking up gourmet bites and great meals all weekend long.
