An Puball Gaeilge is back at Electric Picnic for the the 11th year in a row

An Puball Gaeilge is back for the 11th year in a row with a packed programme of top-entertainment ‘as Gaeilge’ at Electric Picnic 2018.  On this year’s programme of events at An Puball Gaeilge, will be exciting live performances from many excellent bands and musical acts, live podcasting, a magic show, Ted Talks ‘as Gaeilge’, comedians, plays, poetry and lots more!

“An Puball Gaeilge is a fine example of co-operation with a number of groups pulling together to ensure that the Irish Language has a prominent place in the programme of Ireland’s top summer festival, year in, year out.” says Frainc Mac Cionnaith, Bainisteoir Forbartha Pobail with Glór na nGael. “This year we have Raidió na Life, Raidió Fáilte, Glór na nGael and An Cabaret Craiceáilte, among others, working together to programme a fantastic weekend of entertainment.  I would like to congratulate Rossa Ó Snodaigh and his colleagues who founded An Puball Gaeilge 11 years ago and have worked tirelessly  to ensure the prominence of our language at the festival every year since.”

Among those who festival-goers can see at Friday night’s Siamsa Raidió na Life will be Cult Called Man, Three Underneath, Oski Bravo, Exiles, Bruadar and Ullchabháin.  Saturday night’s Cabaret Craiceáilte will see Belfast’s edgy Irish-language rappers Kneecap, alongside other fantastic musical acts such as Shane Hennesy, Thatchers of the Acropolis and more.  Sunday’s Scléip Raidió Fáilte will feature appearances from Abhainn Bheara, Gráinne Holland, Éiriú, LÁS, and Na Hot Toddies among others.
