BARE in the Woods’ ambition is to create one of the best boutique festival sites in Europe and bring an event that has something different to offer the festival season in Ireland. The BARE festival site compliments its natural surroundings using timber sourced from the site itself to build some very creative stages and structures. It is also one of the best priced festivals in Ireland with camping tickets for the 24-hour event priced at only €40 for a Day Ticket and €50 with camping.

This is will be the third BARE in the Woods festival – the previous two were sell outs – and it was the winner of an Irish Festival Award this year for ‘Best One Day Festival’ 80% of timber used on the site has come from storm damaged trees and has been milled on the site bythe BARE crew. The site itself is nestled beside the River Barrow and overlooked by the Slieve Bloom mountains and features a traditional Irish Crannog and a lake with a party island that will run late in to the night. Stage times for BARE in the Woods will be announced shortly.

BARE in the Woods is located only 50 minutes from Dublin and is accessible via motorway networks to all major Irish cities in under two hours. The site is located close to Portarlington railway station and serviced by Dublin Coach, with a 24-hour service to Dublin, Limerick and Cork.

STAY STILL PILLS

StayStillPills are an East Cork based Irish American neo-psychedelic rock group. The band started in 2013 when Mick Hayes (Rulers of the Planet/The Shanks) and Clancy Potts teamed up with Darrin Mullins (Dissolutes/The Driven), Emmet Ryan (Kidminister) and Ian Walsh (Allegro).  StayStillPills are very influenced by all things 60’s as well as avant-garde Jazz and slight touches of Stoner Rock. In the summer of 2013, StayStillPills recorded a version of Del Shannon’s Move it on Over and this has subsequently been included on the Del Shannon Songwriters Tribute album that is currently on release in the US on Rockbeat records. Other luminaries included on this album are Frank Black (Pixies) Nash Kato (Urge Overkill) and Randy Bachmann (Bachmann Turner Overdrive).

Supporting Stay Still Pills in The Crane Lane Theatre Cork were Corks latest electronic duo Deadlights.  Check out Deadlights video below.
