Aiken Promotions have announced their new partnership with Castlepalooza Music & Arts Festival.

The festival celebrates it’s 10th anniversary this year with a very special line-up and a re-designed site. It will take place on the new dates of Friday July 1st to Sunday July 3rd at it’s beautiful location of Charleville Castle, Tullamore.

To celebrate this new beginning for Castlepalooza, they are bringing some of the most exciting live acts in the world to Tullamore including Canadian electronic artist CARIBOU, Bay Area hip-hop pioneers JURASSIC 5, the world-acclaimed VILLAGERS from Dublin’s Conor O’Brien and great American indie rock and soul songwriter CAT POWER. Other performances confirmed include an exclusive live AV set from London’s young sample-heavy electronic producer ROMARE, Italian post-disco duo TIGER & WOODS, Berlin DJ ALLE FARBEN, Irish arranger and musician extraordinaire COLM MAC CON IOMAIRE, acclaimed guitarist CIAN NUGENT, Cork’s sonic-rock kids THE ALTERED HOURS, instrumental rockers OVERHEAD, THE ALBATROSS, Galway’s soundscape songstress SOMERVILLE, downtempo Swedish pop from BADLANDS, Waterford funk-soul-disco crew GET DOWN EDITS and many, many more to be announced in the coming weeks.

Castlepalooza is an award-winning festival renowned for it’s relaxed, feel-good atmosphere and intimacy. It takes place in one of the most beautiful festival sites in the country, the centre-piece of which is Charleville Castle - a 17th century medieval structure steeped in history and myth. The castle is subject to an important restoration fund and heritage trust to which Castlepalooza donates every year. Charleville castle is situated in the oldest primordial oak wood in Ireland populated with the most weird and wonderful trees. The building itself is often referenced by paranormal enthusiasts as one of the most haunted properties in Europe!

Aiken Promotions have been long-time fans of Castlepalooza and they are delighted to announce this partnership. Cillian Stewart & his team have done a fantastic job building this festival independently and they look forward to building on the good work.
