There's nothing better than heading out to a festival during summer time, and Groove 2016 is looking like it's going to be a good one.

The festival has announced its new partnership with Hop House 13, as well as the new Hop House 13 stage with brilliant acts set to play in July.

Headlining the stage on Saturday July 2 is Irish musician David Kitt, and with six albums under his belt, he's definitely going to put on a good show.

Sunday July 3 will see The Young Folk take to the stage, who are making waves in The Netherlands and were also one of Ireland's reps at Eurosonic earlier this year.

Groove Festival is now in its fourth year, and 2016 is looking bigger and better than ever with acts such as Aslan, The Blades and Ocean Colour Scene all performing over the weekend.

See you there?

Now going into its third year Groove Festival at Kilruddery House in Co. Wicklow is not one to be missed. Previous acts at the festival include UB40, Imelda May and David Gray.

So yup, they’ve definitely got all the music genres covered.

And this year the final line-up includes Christy Moore, Wallis Bird, and The Darkness as well as The Riptide Movement and local Wicklow group Wyvern Lingo, meaning the family-friendly weekend has plenty for every kind of music lover.

The main stage isn’t just where all the big acts will be either. The backdrop has two scenic features in the Wicklow Mountains and Kilruddery House itself. Perfect for that enviable cover photo to prove you’ve gone to at least one cool festival this year.

It’s not just music that the event has on offer. They’ve got plenty more activities planned to keep the crowds entertained. Outdoor Discovery are going to be providing attendees with a choice of Aqua Sphering, a climbing wall and a driving simulator.

If you fancy keeping your feet dry, skip the floating plastic zorbs and head over to the Safe Archery area for a bit of a challenge.

Camping at festivals generally isn’t the most glamorous activity but this venue is more than just massive fields. There’s plenty of walks surrounding the estate with water features and outdoor “rooms” to explore.

Plus, they’ve got special areas to keep kids entertained all weekend long. Wonderland Productions are on site to run 45 minute workshops that include storytelling and games with props and costumes. There’s also an Enchanted Garden that’s got yoga classes, magicians, face painting and clowns.

Tickets start at €49.50 plus a booking fee and children under 4-years-old go free. Check out more on the website here.



With the weather finally picking up and summer so close we can almost taste it, it's time to start planning our summer festival schedule.

If there's one thing Ireland does well, it's music festivals, and we've just found another one to add to our ever-growing wish list.

Groove returns to the gorgeous Killruddery Estate in Co Wicklow for a third year running this July 4th and 5th, and the line-up is pretty stellar indeed.

The Darkness will rock the stage on the Saturday night, with Christy Moore taking over on Sunday night to finish out what's sure to be an epic weekend.

Kila and The Riptide Movement will also perform, with many other main stage acts to be announced, along with the line-up for the Harbour Bar Stage, the children's area and more.

Tickets start at €49.50 for one day or €69.50 for two, plus booking fee. Child and family tickets are also available.

See you there!
