The festivals like Forever Young Festival in the UK are mainly attended by adults, and are not really attractive to teenagers. Under 5’s are free, but not advised. We offer child tickets for 5 to 12 year olds attending with adults at a cost of €50. Anyone over 12 will require a full price ticket, but all under 18’s must be accompanied by a parent. There will be fair rides, but the festival is largely centred around the main stage music acts.

No we encourage you to bring picnic blankets and camping chairs to set up your own group area on the day. There will be an area in front of the stage that is a standing area only for those wanting to be up close to the acts.

No gas or BBQ’s are allowed, as this is a condition for the fire safety position for the licence.

The Forever Young Festival field. This is the main event, the main arena where all the amazing original icons will perform.

Its important to note that no seating is provided, there is a dancing/standing area in front of the stage, and everywhere else in the field is for you and your friends to set up your area for the day. Picnic blankets, camping chairs, settle in and go back to the 80’s. FANCY DRESS ADDS TO THE VIBE OF THE EVENT so dig out your best 80’s outfits and join the party.

We are delighted to be bringing some of the top tribute bands from Ireland and the UK to our second stage area. Set in the largest walled garden in Europe, this is a chance to enjoy the music of artists either sadly no longer around, or just too big for our budget.

If you have never been to a silent disco, it is ridiculously great fun. Everyone in one big top, dancing and singing to a selection of channels playing the best 80’s disco on the planet. Laugh at your friends singing loudly to ‘Rio’ whilst you rock the air guitar world to some Guns N’ Roses. And as its not loud playing music, it allows the party to go on into the night, after the other attractions have finished. Don’t miss it!

If you want to add that touch of finesse to your festival experience, you can add a pass to our exclusive VIP area. This is a cordoned off area with seating, a marquee, food order service, private bar, and luxury toilets. It is provided primarily for the artists and their guests, so you never know who you may bump into. These passes are very limited. Its a small exclusive crowd.
