GET ready for making magical memories with the family on Saturday, July 13, and Sunday, July 14, as Northern Ireland’s biggest family festival weekend, the Dalriada Festival 2019, powered by Purple Bricks, makes a huge return.

Proudly supported by Mid and East Antrim Borough Council and in association with Tower Centre, located at the historic Glenarm Castle, this year’s programme will not disappoint. With live music from top, well known UK artists from the 90s to the present day, fine food and drink and a wide range of activities for kids, this is one family festival you simply cannot miss.

Check out the amazing music line-up

Over the two days, you can watch top class performers, featuring nostalgic 90s and present day acts, including Peter Andre (exclusive Northern Ireland date), Fleur East, Samantha Harvey, Atomic Kitten, D:Ream, East 17, Republica, Phats and Small – to name but a few. There will also be a fantastic mix of local singers and bands.

A festival crafted with the family in mind

They were a big hit in 2016 and they are back again for this year, kids will love Paw Patrol with kids TV stars Chase and Marshall, Sam and Mark from CBBC’s Big Friday Wind Up and the nation’s favourite little green Tractor Ted will bring a real life farm courtesy of the Official Tractor Ted team.

Amazing food

Take in the beautiful aroma of the ‘Celtic Smoke’ International BBQ competition, sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society. Also look out for an array of local producers and vendors, including the street food market, chef demonstrations, pop-up restaurant and a family dining area.

Stay the whole weekend

Why not pack up the family camping kit, caravan or camper van and pitch up at the fantastic festival camp site? For something more luxurious, there is also 5* Glamping available. Wake up in the beautiful surroundings of the Glenarm Estate and step right into the festival atmosphere from morning to evening. Guaranteed fun for everyone.

Nigel Campbell, Festival Director, commented: “We are delighted to be back with the Dalriada Festival 2019. Every year we aim to create a festival with families in mind.
