CORK'S newest music festival has announced its final round of acts, just weeks before it is due to take place.

It Takes a Village comes to Trabolgan Holiday Village in East Cork from Friday, April 13 to Sunday, April 15, with more than 70 Irish and international acts to take part in a unique festival experience.

Organisers have scrapped the traditional festival camping set up and, instead, are offering the holiday village and chalet accommodation of Trabolgan.

The 1,000 festivalgoers will have a range of amenities to choose from, too, including an indoor swimming pool, an arcade, 5-a-side soccer, bowling, go karts and much more.

Landless, a four part acapella group, disco DJs Gay Future and local musicians Saint Caoilian, Aisooo and Elaine Malone have all been added too.

A host of Cork acts will perform, too, with Talos, the Altered Hours, Fish Go Deep and Brian Deady just some of those lined up to play.

Some of the best up-and-coming Irish musical talent has also been signed up for the festival, including Bitch Falcon, Booka Brass, Saint Sister, John Blek, Ye Vagabonds, Anna Mieke, Ryan Vail and Bantum.

The festival will also host some podcasts and discussions, with Blindboy Boatclub of the Rubberbandits, Cork Loves Music and the Point Everything just some of what is on offer.

Organisers have also unveiled a host of local food producers to keep festivalgoers well fed, with the Rocket Man, Volcano Wood-Fired Pizza, My Goodness vegan food, Barracouda BBQ and Red Strand Coffee all available.
