Speaking about the Irish TV programme, Michael Scully, Johnston's Music Festival Organiser said it was fantastic that the festival will be broadcast to a global TV audience, "Slane has a long history of music and so it felt very natural for members of the town to put together the festival to honour the Johnston's and promote young talent.
