WIN: Two tickets to Beyond The Pale festival in Wicklow - thanks to Absolut (Competition closed)

Beyond The Pale is back again this year and you don’t want to miss this year’s incredible festival.

WINTER IS WELL and truly behind us and we’ve got longer days and warmer weather to look forward to over the coming months. In even better news, we’re entering festival season and what promises to be an unforgettable summer for live music in Ireland.

Beyond The Pale held its inaugural weekend of music last year and received rave reviews from both attendees and the acts, particularly electronic due Orbital who said it was one of the “best festivals we’ve ever played.”

The three day festival will make its return this year from 16 – 18 June on Glendalough Estate in Wicklow and we’ve teamed up with Absolut to offer one lucky reader of TheJournal.ie two weekend camping tickets to the festival this year.

The winner can look forward to an incredible line-up featuring the likes of Grace Jones, Jon Hopkins and Hot Chip, as well as the 2021 winner of the Choice Music Prize, For Those I Love. It will also be a stopping point for Candi Staton’s Farewell Tour and plenty of other amazing acts.

For those seeking refreshment in the arena, there’ll be plenty of drink options with the pick being an Absolut bar beside the Big Romance stage. The bar will offer premium drink serves for attendees and will be a perfect addition to what will be a fantastic weekend of music and craic.

There’s something for everyone at this year’s festival with attendees being treated to a celebration of all things food and drink at the Beyond The Plate stage. Festival goers can feast at some of Ireland’s best street food vendors and then enjoy talks, tastings, chats, demos and craic at the dedicated food and drink stage.
