Dublin musician Gavin James has been announced as the latest Irish act to join the stellar line up at the upcoming Púca Festival, taking place across Trim and Athboy this October. Tickets for the unmissable event are due to go on sale this Friday, 26th August at 10am.
The sensational Gavin James will be joining in the Samhain celebrations at Púca Festival and headlining the Púca Big Top Stage in Trim Castle on October 30th. Hot off the heels of his recently released No.1 third studio album ‘The Sweetest Part’, featuring singles ‘Circles‘, ‘Jealous‘, and ‘Kingdom‘, James has garnered 1.8 billion streams on Spotify, 1 Diamond record, and 45 Platinum and Gold records globally, a number one album in Ireland, a sold-out world tour and live shows with Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Niall Horan, and James Blunt.
In recent weeks, Imelda May has been added to the bill and announced as a headliner joining a well-rounded line-up featuring the talented King Kong Company, Block Rockin’ Beats, Lisa Hannigan & Cathy Davey, Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow Cabaret, Joanne McNally, Blindboy, David O’Doherty, Neil Delamere, and Jason Byrne with more acts yet to be announced.
Working in partnership with Irish artists, seanchaí storytellers, and the local community Púca will showcase the best in contemporary Irish music, spectacle, and performance in Ireland’s Ancient East.
They will conspire over four stages in Trim and Athboy, named after the goddess of the Boyne, Boann, the goddess of war, Morrigan, the faerie of mischief, Fear Dearg and of course the main Púca stage, to entertain followers of folklore and legend.
Celebrating Ireland as the birthplace of Halloween, Púca is an authentic, immersive, and otherworldly festival. Púca will comprise four nights and three breath-taking days of music, myth, food, folklore, fire, feasting, and merriment in the country where Halloween began, with a range of ticketed and free events on offer.
