Sea Sessions has risen rapidly to the top of the small festival table in record speeds. Recognised not only for the quality of acts that they manage to pack the line-up with, this festival has so much more. Water sports enthusiasts can enjoy the waves lapping against the Donegal shores (recognised as some of the world’s best surf!)
Skateboard and BMX jams help revellers enjoy the afternoons pre-music, along with beach volleyball and barefoot footie matches on the soft sands to bring out your competitive side.
The line-up this year includes one of my favourite live acts: Primal Scream
Also in attendance are DJ Scruff, Sigma, The Coronas and Badly Drawn Boy to boot!
Following on from this cracking weekend of music and sports, why not order some Spicy Wings!
Body & Soul

The Body & Soul festival originated when a dedicated group of creative people all sharing a mutual love of art, music, performance and a good old-fashioned party decided to come together 7 years ago and create an intimate festival like no other.
Selling out year on year, this alternative world for artists, musicians and like-minded people has an atmosphere so often lost in generic festivals and productions.
Held on the weekend of the Summer Solstice and boasting a line-up of amazing artists including: Metronomy, Bonobo, Lambchop, Mykki Blanco and King Kong Kompany (highly recommended)
