Festival legends King Kompany have been added to the exciting bill at Townlands Carnival, taking place from July 21-23 in Macroom

IRISH festival legends King Kong Company and Britain's Got Talent semi-finalists Lords of Strut have been added to the growing line-up at this summer's Townlands Festival.

Taking place at Rusheen Farm estate in Macroom from July 21-23, the festival boasts an array of musicians and artists at one of the country's most unique festivals.

Hermitage Green, Rubberbandits, Jack O'Rourke and Stomptown Brass are among the dozens already announced for the festival.

Organisers have also revealed that Stevie G and Andrea Williams Dancers are bound for this year’s Main Stage, promising an exciting live show played out to hip hop, dancehall, jazz and RnB beats. 

This year's festival boasts an eclectic mix of activities that are sure to appeal to everyone.

Grown ups and kids are invited to dance to the rhythm with Dead Cool Songs silent disco or embrace their inner Sherlock Holmes for the Digital Scavenger Hunt. 

Alternatively, film buffs and music lovers alike can relax and join CineCeoil for a programme of films that document Ireland, her landscapes and musicians. Ronan Leonard brings festival favourite Ringo: Music Bingo testing your music knowledge whilst tickling your funny bone.

Theatrical walkabouts roam the Townlands breathing new life into the meaning of Freakshow Carnival & Circus Cabaret. 

Embracing its carnival routes, Townlands is inviting festival-goers to create costumes using recycled and upcycled materials to join this year's theme of 'Carnival Through the Ages.' 

Participants will take part in the traditional end of the festival: a parade through the festival on Sunday evening, with prizes for the best costumes.

With a limited amount of Tier 3 tickets available (€125 + booking fee) Tier 4 tickets (€140 + bf) will become available on July 4.
