Groove Zone (all weekend)

New for 2014 is the Groove Zone. This area replaces the second stage and will see the return of the Silent Disco (a huge success last year), top DJ’s, spoken word, a chill out area surrounding the stunning Killruddery water lily pond plus much to be announced in the coming weeks.

Other features from last year’s festival are set to return including the climbing wall and Archery Tag.  Water zorbs will also make an appearance on the lakes in Killruddery, so festival-goers can enjoy a tumble through water.

The Irish Rocketry Society will also stage a 30 minute display on both Saturday and Sunday, launching full professional rockets of all sizes. Prepare to be amazed by the power of these. And they will even let kids build and launch some of the smaller ones.

Aside from all the activities,  food provided again this year by masterchef John Coughlan.
