Back by popular demand and bigger and better than ever, Ahiohill Music Fest returns on Friday, October 3 and Saturday, October 4.

This year, the event runs over two nights and with such a line-up of headline acts, it promises to be another great weekend. The Music Fest kicks off on Friday night at 8pm with local duo Roxy John and Frank to warm up the crowd. Then, in what promises to be a very special gig, the hugely popular ‘Friends in Low Places: The Ultimate Garth Brooks Experience’, take to the stage at 10pm.

This is a world-class production paying tribute to the biggest selling artist of the 20th century — Garth Brooks. Well-known country singer Trevor Smith fronts the eight-piece band. For Brooks fans and all other music lovers this show is a must see and promises the next best thing to the man himself!

Following on, the very talented ‘Hell for Leather’ will have the crowd hopping till the early hours. They are the most exciting band to emerge from the dykes and ditches of Cork. The group of four plays a breed of trad that is refreshingly energetic.

Following in the success of last year’s Music Fest, Hermitage Green and The Kilkenny’s return on Saturday night. To start off the night, Pat Fitz, the former ‘You’re a Star’ contestant will be rocking it out from 8pm. Hermitage Green take to the stage at 10pm.The lads have had a very successful year; they recorded their album ‘Live at Whelan’s’ and their song ‘Cloud 9’ became a social media hit when it was used as a soundtrack for Keary’s Mini Roadtrip. They are sure to put on another memorable performance.

Renowned for their incredible musicianship and vocal abilities, The Kilkenny’s will finish out the night. The lads really enjoyed the Music Fest last year and are looking forward to putting on another great show.

Wristbands will be on sale in participating Centra/SuperValu stores across West Cork and cost €20 for Friday night, or Saturday night or a Weekend Pass for €25 (this will allow you access to all events across the weekend). The Neil Johnson shuttle bus will run from 8pm both nights with pic-up outside AIB, Clonakilty.

There will be full bar facilities, food and parking available on the night. You can also visit the festival’s Facebook page AHIOHILL MUSIC FEST or call the Venue Box Office on 086-8842251.
