Kerry, and north Kerry in particular, have a very proud tradition music, song and craic and it is fitting that this isto continue with the inaugural Revival Music Festival which is being held in Listowel on this Saturday 13th August 2016.
Eight publicans, Aiden O’Connor, Sean Broderick, Jerry Behan, Mike Brosnan, Christy Walsh, Terry Dunne,
Gordon Flannery and Liam Canty came together and developed the idea of bringing outdoor live music to
Listowel. In conjunction with Kerry County Council and the Gardai, The Square will be transformed into an open
area arena. With music from The Riptide Movement, The Stunning, plus Frank & Walters festival goers can
expect a truly memorable experience.
Tickets are priced at €27.50 and are available through Ticketmaster or in Listowel from any of the eight
publicans. In conjunction with sponsors Heineken their will be a full bar within the arena so this event is strictly
for over 18’s, with security staff in attendance. In addition there will be gourmet food outlets providing a variety
of fair within the arena itself.
The gates will open at 5.00pm and the concert will run from 7.00pm to 11.00pm. Publican Aiden O’Connor said
“This is another fantastic event for the town and we would like to thank the residents of The Square for their
support and cooperation as well as the elected members of Listowel Municipal District for their assistance
through the Community Support Fund. There is a real buzz around North Kerry as the event nears and I would
ask people to check out the Revival Festival Facebook page for further details.”
The publicans are hoping that this will be an annual event and any profits from this year will be used to make
next year’s festival bigger and better.
