COMPETITION: Your chance to win a pair of tickets to Portarlington's KICK 2018!

COMPETITION: Your chance to win a pair of tickets to Portarlington's KICK 2018!

Portarlington RFC have teamed up with the Leinster Express and Offaly Express to give one lucky winner a free pair of tickets to this year's over 18s KICK festival event. 

Having been a huge success over the last two years when Smash Hits played, this year organisers are changing it up to have a day of dance and rock excellence on Saturday, May 19.

Kicking off at 6:00pm with’ My Tribe, Your Tribe,' who’s latest music is, for the most part, an upbeat marriage of pitch-shifted Indie-Psychedelic guitars and retro-synths slotting in somewhere between the immediacy of classic 80s synth pop bands and the production qualities of artists such as LCD sound system and Tame impala.

It’s with great excitement that the ‘Knights of Leon’ were announced, bring the stadium rock anthems vibes of Kings of Leon to life in Portarlington.

The night, and weekend, is topped off with a tribute from the dance sensation band Daft Funk, playing the hits of their favorite band Daft Punk. Dance the night away to worldwide hits such as “One more time”, “Around the world”, “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” and many, many more!

Again, the music entertainment is added to by McCormack’s carnival with plenty of choice of food and drink available.

To win a pair of tickets to the exciting event, simply head over to the Leinster Express or Offaly Express Facebook pages for all the details on how to enter. 

Tickets for the event are priced at €15, with some early bird €10 tickets still available from Centra on Main Street in Portarlington, and from Brew Café, Dublin Rd, Portlaoise.

This year, Portarlington RFC are also hosting an under 18s version of this festival experience with live music and dance from local bands and DJs. We also have tickets to give away to that spectacular event, and you can use the link below to find out more about entering that competition.
