The summer months are synonymous with festivals but with so many to choose from, be it Metropolis or this weekend’s forthcoming Body & Soul, how do you know which one to attend? While we’re not fans of rulebooks, each festival has its own distinct style which is reflected both in the music acts that perform and the fashion choices of the attendees. So which festival is calling your name? As part of our new summer series in association with Bulmers Light, we’ve created a style quiz that will help you find exactly what summer festival is the one for you.
Head to Body & Soul for a weekend of music, art and theatre featuring Metronomy, Bonobo, Talos and more from 23rd-25th June 2017 at Ballinlough Castle, Co. Westmeath. Here you will discover your new favourite band, secret hideaways and glittering discos in the woodlands all the while meeting acrobats, troubadours, belly dancers and drummers, and artists. A celebration for foodies, folkies, funksters and late-night revellers alike.

Keeping us going through the darker nights is Metropolis, held in early November, it transforms four halls of the city centre RDS into the ultimate club night complete with dazzling light shows and installations. We’re eagerly awaiting this year’s line-up set to continue in an impressive vein of acts including top international DJs such as Cyril Hahn, Groove Armada, Moderat and Todd Terje and crowd pleasers like The Sugar Hill Gang, Grace Jones and Chic, each year’s selection is a who’s who of all-time dance-floor-filling acts with a focus on electronic.

Party with your favourite acts at Bulmers Forbidden Fruit in the spectacular grounds of Irish Museum Of Modern Art, The Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Dublin. Set across five stages (Original Stage, Outcider, Lighthouse, Someplace Else, and the Bulmers Live Stage which plays host to 100% Irish artists), this is a unique city centre festival that combines music, art, fashion, food and simple good vibes with great cutting-edge sound, comedy, art, good food, and festival fun. While Forbidden Fruit may be over for this year, it will be back in 2018 so keep an ear out for more information!
