Wicklow County Council invites you to come along to Garageland Galayxz Wicklow at Cruinniú na nÓg 2022! 

Young Wicklow bands and performers are to be given a stage for their talents in a unique partnership between Wicklow County Council, Garageland and Creative Ireland, and supported by RTÉ.

Taking place at the North Beach Skate Park in Arklow on Saturday, June 11th, this event is as part of Cruinniú na nÓg 2022.

Garageland Galaxyz Wicklow, which supports the performance and creativity of young musicians while putting them on stage alongside experienced artists in the environment of a festival, will take place in eight separate locations around the country at the same place on the same day, all broadcasting live on multiple platforms.

In a first of its kind, this ambitious project seeks to connect hundreds of young artists and performers in a way that has never been seen before in Ireland, with live stages in Arklow, Castleblaney, Kerry, Tipperary, Waterford, Donegal, Meath and Dublin.

All stages go live at 12pm until 5.30pm on Saturday, 11th June alongside a live and pre-recorded 12-hour broadcast from across multiple platforms.

Wicklow’s line-up of young artists includes Florence Road, Fionn Vigors, Róisín Vigors, Ewan Macadam, Kingdom, Bobby Dowling and Aoife Reilly with more to be announced.

In addition, there will be workshops with The Beardfire Project and special guests Crispr Kid.

Suitable for ages 9 – 18+ years
