Already confirmed for their only Irish festival appearance of the summer are New York hip hop legends, The Sugarhill Gang – and they will now be joined by one of the most innovative dance producers of the last few years Paul Woolford and motley Irish comedy crew The Hardy Bucks

Paul Woolford headlines an expanded Dance line-up this year to incorporate two of the most amazing stages on the Irish festival scene, The Island and The Crannog. These will host some of the UK and Ireland top DJs and collectives, featuring Made by PeteDJ MEKDess & Connor CMix & FairbanksDean Heavy & Shane BerneyCinema (DJ SET)Maebh O’ ConnorDistrict Magazine DJsSean SavageJosh Mc GowanJesse JacksonStephen Courtney and Kev Kinsella.

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.
