Forever Young Festival - where the ’80s come alive!
This summer sees the return of the ‘Forever Young Festival’, an event that brings the explosive 80s back to life in full neon glory at the Palmerstown House Estate in Kildare.
Awarded ‘Best Line Up’ and ‘Best Medium-Sized Festival’ in Ireland, Forever Young 2022 promises to be one you will not forget.
Timeless bands from the 80’s such as headliners Marti Pellow (Wet Wet Wet), Holly Johnson (Frankie Goes to Hollywood) and OMD alongside an array of fellow luminaries and a star-studded lineup of over 30 original 80’s iconic artists, take to the stage from July 15 to 17.
Sing along to Tiffany, Paul Young, Haircut 100, Transvision Vamp, Nik Kershaw, Bananarama, Paul Carrack, In Tua Nua, Heather Small, 5 Star, The Boomtown Rats and many many more.
This is a high-end adult party weekend par excellence, an unforgettable musical experience. A mixtape weekend where colleagues, friends and family can relive their youth, pull on their leg warmers and ra ra skirts, don the shoulder pads, roll up their suit sleeves along with mirrored aviator shades, and enjoy the 80’s all over again.
This is a trip in a time machine, and true to their era, a classic DeLorean and Knight Rider ‘Kit’ car welcome you at the main arena entrance. The retro gaming tent is another nostalgia fest with Space Invaders, Pac man, and all the original arcade games that set the foundation of all gaming.
Combine the incredible experience with luxury camping, flushing toilets, on-site glamping with comfortable beds, duvets, and power to charge your devices so you can be sure to take as many photos as possible to cherish the memories, hot showers, and golf buggy lifts around the site. Forever Young strives to make your comfort and enjoyment their number one priority.
Along with the ethos of being an eco-friendly, climate-aware run event, the festival was launched by veterinarian Dr Sharon Alston, solely to raise funds for a new animal welfare charity “Animal Welfare and Veterinary Care Ireland”.
All single-use plastics are fully banned on site, so the beautiful grounds stay clean, festival-goers don’t walk through a sea of waste, none of the waste goes to landfill, this is a festival with a heart and a conscience.
