Knockanstockan 2015 lineup announcement and new look website

Last night, the guys at Knockanstockan HQ broke the internet by revealing the first batch of defining artists that will rock the Ballyknockan district this coming July, and launched their new look website.

The lineup is, yet again, a fine example of the musical talent that Ireland has to offer.

And there are more announcements to come. The swanky new website boasts that there will be a total of 100 bands from across the globe. No mean feat we can assure you, and very impressive that these guys can pull this off every year given that it is a not for profit organisation run by volunteers with a passion for all things musical.

The lineup so far –

SYD ARTHUR, CULT CALLED MAN, RED ENEMY, KINGSTON, REBECCA COLLINS, LEO DREZDEN, CONTOUR, GASCAN RUCKUS, ROCSTRONG,   ROBOCOBRA QUARTET, O EMPEROR, INTERSKALACTIC, TUCAN, NEW SECRET WEAPON, VERNON JANE, BUNOSCIONN, BUNK, MEGACONE, POCKETS, HECTOR BIZERK, THE WITCH TRIALS, MONGOOSE, MAMA KASBAH

Early bird tickets are going for a steal @ €65 each, but they’re going quick! Get ’em here while they’re hot!

Knockanstockan you’re such a tease!

Knockanstockan will reveal the next batch of live acts for 2015 later today, and throw a new website in to the party too.

So far we have been teased with an already impressive lineup of Kingston, Rebecca Collin, Leo Drezden, Contour, Cult Called Man, Red Enemy and Bitch Falcon.

The announcement was made here in a State of the Nation article where Bettine McMahon gives a brief history of the festival, as well as the prep needed beforehand. Well worth a read, and a great insight in to the fest – she knows her stuff!
