The Irish language stage, An Chollchoill, returns this year and will celebrate Irish music, language and culture throughout the weekend.
Conradh na Gaeilge’s Croí na Féile is set to bring the Irish language to centre stage with a mix of traditional music agus cultúr Gaelach with acts every night from 7pm to after midnight. These acts will feature some great DJs such as Ailbhe Ní Riain, traditional music groups like Shandrum Céilí Band who have been entertaining festival goers at Electric Picnic since the Collchoill stage started in 2018 as well as the incredible Bandia group who are known for their Irish language covers.
Daytime acts will see winners of the Electric Youth competition showcase their talents in a range of genres from spoken word to vocal and instrumental pieces, performance art from Strive Theatre, music from accordion maestro Liam O’Connor plus much more!
Once again, campers will have the opportunity to pitch their tents in the company of other Irish language speakers in the official Gaeltacht campsite, an Láthair Ghaeltachta. Conradh na Gaeilge invites Picnickers to come and stay in the Gaeltacht campsite, where Irish will be the main spoken language with ceol, craic agus cannaí among Gaels at the festival. The campsite will offer a chance for people to use their Gaeilge throughout the weekend. An Láthair Ghaeltachta, has become a hugely popular campsite and fills up quickly so if you want to put the language at croí na féile and to enjoy a space with other Irish speaking campers over the weekend make sure to register!
