Ravelóid is a pioneering new music and culture festival that is to take place in summer 2016.

Every summer a wide range of boutique festivals are held throughout Ireland, all of which use English as their primary language of communication and promotion.

Ravelóid will put the Irish language at the centre of an exciting mixture of contemporary and traditional music, comedy, dance, literature, discussions, workshops and more.

The festival will take place on the expansive grounds of Ardgillan Castle, near Balbriggan in north county Dublin, and will provide full camping facilities for the 5,000 people who will attend the newest and sunniest festival in the Irish language world.

Ravelóid will be dynamic celebration of the Irish language as an intrinsic element of our identity and will provide a wonderful insight into the vibrancy and diversity of the language’s contemporary culture in 2016.
