Music | Body&Soul unearths some special delights for 2017

Body&Soul 2017 line-up

Body&Soul has gone from a festival within a festival to standing on its own two legs at Ballinlough Castle. The midsummer festival returns with its unique blend of music, art, and wellbeing to soothe your hazy summer days.

Now in its eighth year, the event will see a new Body&Soul main stage, one of its main elements. Electro-pop outfit, Metronomy, alt-country collective Lambchop, whose move into gorgeous and nuanced electronic territory with album FLOTUS is cause for some summer celebration. French dance artist Vitalic and more will make Ballinlough the place to be in late June.

First round of acts: Metronomy / Sleaford Mods / Lambchop / Vitalic / La Femme / Songhoy Blues / Optimo20 / Hundred Waters / Mammút / Tiggs Da Author / Birdy Nam Nam / Formation / Idiotape / Anna Meredith / Avalon Emerson / Loah / Elaine Mai / Mr TC / Miss Red & The Bug / A Tribe Called Red / DBFC / Weval / King Kong Company / Kelly-Anne Byrne

The Second Nature arena will also return, providing a tranquil idyll under centuries-old pines for soothing treatments, hot tubs and holistic workshops that expand the mind and quiet the soul.

News on changes to campsites and boutique offerings will be released soon, while the eco-conscious Us&You Campsite is now open for registration.

Tickets can be purchased here.
