Laois Music Festival announces new glamping site


A new boutique Laois music festival that was a sell-out success last summer, has added glamping and an extra stage to its lineup for 2023.

The first Forest Fest in Emo was a big hit for locals and visitors alike last July, featuring top performers like the Waterboys and The Stunning.

Founder and promoter Philip Meagher has confirmed he will be returning next summer following the same family-friendly, paperback format, with tickets set to go on sale.

Now, glamping – glamorous camping – is added as a luxurious option, announced with a fourth stage, this Wednesday, October 26.

“For Forest Fest2 next July, we are delighted to partner with the highly experienced and highly regarded glamping company Pitched Perfect to bring an extra layer of comfort, convenience and luxury to your Forest Fest experience. you have purchased your Forest Fest Weekend Glamping ticket, then you can go to their website and upgrade to your preferred glamping option.

“We will be maintaining the highest standards at next summer’s Forest Fest2 with a lineup featuring over 40 artists, headlined by critically acclaimed international artists and a range of Ireland’s most established artists and bands, as well as emerging talent.

“There will be an additional fourth stop, The Forest Fleadh, featuring the best of Irish folk and tradition.

“Our hospitality offering will be further refined and improved, making it second to none,” Forest Fest announced.

The festival has been nominated for a Midlands Hospitality Award.

“Thank you again for all your support and nomination for Best Festival in the Midlands Hospitality Awards…fingers crossed for the outcome of the Gala Nite at the Midlands Park Hotel on November 14th,” they add.
