October Nights Music Festival
Ballina, Co. Mayo
28 October - 29 October 2023
Across two nights, some of Irelands’ brightest musical lights will visit Ballina this October Bank Holiday weekend. They welcome Irish female rapper Celaviedmai, the genre-defying Peter Broderick and much more.

The never predictable October Nights does its ‘all styles’ thing once again on October 28th & 29th across two nights! So what’s cooking?

Irish hip-hop artist Celaviedmai makes her Mayo debut while Peter Broderick does, what only Peter Broderick can. He’s hard to pin down but impossible not to love.

Co Clare native Siomha has THE most soulful of voices. Harpist Alannah Thornburgh deftly switches between American Appalachian music and Irish trad.

Laurie Shaw will give his new songs written about Ballina the alternative pop treatment. Of course, if you’re getting too comfortable in those red seats, there’s always Ballina’s own hardcore heroes YOP to dish out the life-affirming angst!

October Nights is kindly supported by Ballina 2023.
