The festival that knocks your socks off!

THIS year's Knockanstockan was a sold-out affair as revellers enjoyed three days of open-air independent music alongside the stunning Blessington Lakes.
The festival has certainly grown in stature since 2007 when a small mini-camping festival and musical weekend took place in The Ballyknockan Inn featuring 40 acts.
The most recent festival showcased 150 Irish acts over three days, covering genres from rock, folk and traditional Irish music to rap, soul and dance. The event is delivered by over 250 volunteers, who all offer their services free of charge. Down the years, Knockanstockan has also created an 'Art Trail', which is comprised of site specific art installations and performances.
