The Secret Village Festival Ballaghaderreen Friday August 11th. & Saturday August 12th.

The Secret Village returns to Ballaghaderreen


Dubbed ‘The Electric Picnic of the West’, The Secret Village Festival is set to bring the woods on the edge of Ballaghaderreen to life on Friday, 11th and Saturday, August 12th.

Since it began four years ago, The Secret Village has remained in the top five recommended festivals in Ireland.

Hidden in the woodlands at the back of Spells Bar, entering the site is like going through a magic door taking you into another world, it could be Sherwood Forest or the wooded hills outside Budapest!

The three stages will host 55 bands filling the Ballaghaderreen air with an eclectic mix of trad, folk, bluegrass, Americana, blues, soul, jazz, funk, dance and good old rock ‘n’ roll over the two days.

As well as live bands, West African drumming workshops, arts, crafts and ancient trades will be on display around every corner. The art of storytelling, a playground with games and activities to challenge the mind will keep the children busy.

Tickets are still available online at (also at agents – SuperValu, etc.). Earlybird and weekend camping tickets are now sold out but some weekend tickets and days tickets are still available.

Tickets can also be bought on and at Spells Bar. Contact: 094-9860144 or email: Children under the age of 12 go free!
