The Top 5 music events you DON’T want to miss this coming summer

Summer is jam-packed with gigs and festivals – it's probably why it's our favourite season of the year (well, that and the sun, obvs).

But sometimes there's so many concerts and weekend fests that we just don't know which one (or three) to choose from.

Here, we've complied a list of the best music events on around Ireland over the next few months – ones you'll be totally devo if you miss out on them:

1. Longitude

With The Coronas, Kendrick Lamar and The Lumineers all set to take to the stage, Longitude Festival is definitely something you'll want to experience. Taking place in Marley Park from July 15 to 17, it's going to be a great weekend.


2. Groove

Groove Festival is taking place in Kilruddery House, Co. Wicklow on July 2 and 3. Between acts such as Aslan, Ocean Colour Scene and The Academic all taking to the stage, and the Celtic Kitchen dishing out some fab Irish grub, you'll be spoiled for choice at this fest.


3. Castlepalooza 

This Irish independent festival will see Jurassic 5, Lynched, and Tiger and Woods playing over the weekend at Chareville Castle in Tullamore, so it's something that's not to be missed. Throw that in with good July weather (fingers crossed) and it's a dream come true.


4. Electric Picnic

More acts have just been announced for EP including Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, The 1975, Nas and Joey Badass. Taking place in Stradballay in 63 days (we're not counting.. *cough*), this year's Picnic is looking epic already.


5. Shemazing! Gig with Róisín O (obvs)

Yes! We are hosting our very own gig that's definitely not to be missed. With Róisín O headlining on the night – and loads more acts to be announced – it's going to kick off July with a bang. Just keep your eyes peeled, you have no idea what we have in store *mischievous face emoji*. You can get your tickets here.
