Moira Calling festival returns for a third year on 7th-8th September, bringing another strong line-up of artists to Moira Demesne. Once again a host of local acts are supplemented by English indie pop band Marsicans.
A short train ride from Belfast, the festival promises an intimate setting in Moira’s park. Across two stages, a mostly Northern Irish contingent will play throughout the Saturday. NI Music Prize winner Joshua Burnside heads up a list including alt rock duo Rews, live favourites Hunkpapa, Owen Denvir and a rare appearance for Tuskany. The Loughshore Choir and Moira Primary School Festival Singers add a local and eclectic feel to proceedings. Friday night sees a return for Derry electronic artist Ryan Vail who will be bringing his new laser show, backed by Arco String Quartet.
Having attended the previous two Moira Calling festivals, it is well worth a trip. Tickets are on sale now, available for £15 for Friday general admission, £30 for Saturday and £35 for both, with under 18s tickets available and under 12s go free.
