Earagail Arts Festival 2018
Earagail Arts Festival is a bilingual (Irish and English language), multidisciplinary arts festival which takes place each July throughout County Donegal along the Wild Atlantic Way on the North West coast of Ireland.
From the 11th – 29th July 2018 this iconic festival will be on the road from West to North Donegal, with a host of new productions from award-winning local and international artists.
Earagail Arts Festival brings inspiring performers to this captivating European frontier, showcases artists native to the area and provides opportunities for cultural exchange, in venues from purpose built theatres and galleries, to village halls, forests and beaches, creating a unique cultural experience in the most unlikely of magical places. 2018 sees the 30th Earagail Arts Festival launch 19 consecutive days of multidisciplinary arts on 11th July!
Over the past 28 years the festival has produced a rich vein of collaborations and partnerships including Toumani Diabate and Liam O’ Maonlai, Donal Lunny and Cor Thaobh a Leithid, The Henry Girls with The Fox Hunt, Victor Gama and An Cosan Glas, Fidil and Solo Cissokho, to name but a few.

California Feetwarmers return for our 30th Anniversary
We are thrilled to announce that following their fantastic shows in 2017, The California Feetwarmers make a very welcome return to Earagail Arts Festival and the north-west this summer.
The Los Angeles-based band dusts down and reworks early 20th century jazz classics, re-visiting material from The Blue Ridge Playboys, Scott Joplin, The Memphis Jugband, Emile Grimshaw’s Rag Pickers and many more.
Having won over the crowds at Rathmullan House, Teach Hiudai Beag, Gaoth Dobhair and Swell Music & Arts Festival on Arranmore Island last year, they will play several shows across the north-west during the 2018 festival, with dates to be announced soon.
