Body & Soul Festival



To celebrate FIVE STELLAR YEARS on the Irish festival scene, Body&Soul has a few very special cards up its trademark sleeve for 2014.

Upturning its TRUMP CARD this morning, the multi-award-winning festival signals the first of its exciting line-up announcements for this year’s Summer Solstice weekend, June 20 – 22, set across the unforgettable backdrop of Ballinlough Castle, Co. Westmeath.

Set to headline the festival are über-glam stars GOLDFRAPP who have spanned a fifteen year career creating fantasy environments in their music to reach what is now their celebrated sixth album. Bringing their unique, mesmerising soundscape to Ballinlough. Expect stunning visuals, explosive beats and the spine-tingling vocals of Alison Goldfrapp to set the tone for the entire festival.

Canadian compositional genius CARIBOU will unpack his upbeat 1960’s sunshine pop to bring festival-goers soaring from their feet. The regal baritone of American singer-songwriter, cult hero JOHN GRANT will fill the air with songs from both his award-winning albums.

Each year celebrating the age-old tradition of the Summer Solstice in its own unique and modern way, the ever-changing, ‘shapeshifting’ festival with a “heart-shaped mind and a cutting-edge soul” is known as much for its vast spectrum of musical influences as its attention to smaller details.The family-friendly festival will feature bespoke installations across the walled gardens and woodlands from artists around the world along with a dotted landscape of spoken word, holistic arts, theatrics, acrobatics, gastronomic delights and a promise of adventure around each and every one of its shape-shifting corners…

Body & Soul 2014 line-up so far:  Goldfrapp, Caribou, John Grant, Darkside, Jon Hopkins, Mount Kimbie, Buraka Som Sistema, Nick Waterhouse, East India Youth, Young Wonder, Jessy Lanza, King Kong Company
