Kaleidoscope Announces Its First Headliners!!


Give the gift of festival magic this Christmas As the nights become longer and Christmas lights start to twinkle, our minds become filled with Christmas cheer and plans with family and friends.

And as the lovely people at Kaleidoscope share a taster of the line-up for 2020.

Now is the time to surprise and delight the family with a very special Christmas gift of a wend family ticket for three days of fun, entertainment at next year’s Kaleidoscope!

You can make this pressie even more extra special by adding a cute, soft cuddly Kaleidoscope character as you buy your ticket. These very special limited-edition Kaleidoscope Krew soft toys are lovingly handmade in Ireland by Irish toymakers Red Rufus and for the older festival fan there is a choice of a colourful Christmas limited-edition Kaleidoscope mug, for you to enjoy your hot chocolate on Christmas morning!
And now to reveal a little taster of this year’s Kaleidoscope …..

We are delighted and excited to announce that Basement Jaxx (DJ set) and The Divine Comedy are two of the headlining acts that will grace the main stage at Kaleidoscope Family Camping Festival – just in time for some handy stocking fillers! With belters like “Where’s Your Head At” and “Do Your Thing”, Basement Jaxx are set to rock the front lawn at Russborough House.

Crowd pleasers The Divine Comedy will also bring “Something for the Weekend” to their legions of fans as they take to the main stage with no less than 12
albums under their belts from the last three decades.

The combination of a DJ set from electronic duo Basement Jaxx and the
eclectic sounds of The Divine Comedy mean that Kaleidoscope’s headline acts
offer something for all musical tastes and will have all the family in
harmony as they dance the weekend away to this incredible musical line-up.
Re-live the 90s with the big beats of BRIT-award winners Basement Jaxx –
although this time with the smallies in tow!

Meanwhile, The Divine Comedy frontman Neil Hannon will lead the “National
Express” hitmakers in what promises to be a vibrant and vigorous performance
as they bring everything from synthesized pop to their trademark orchestral
vibrations to the Wicklow stage.

And given their most recent five-star reviews for their latest album, Kaleidoscope is honoured to welcome this iconic band.

Looking beyond the music, Kaleidoscope is thrilled to announce the return of
all of the much-loved entertainment areas that debuted in June 2019 –
Rumpledumpus, The Front Lawn Stage, The Hippodrome Theatre, Cinema Under The
Stars, Wonderland Junior, Wonderland Teen, the Scrumdiddlyumptious Festival
of Food and The Big Hooley. The Sports and Wellness programme, Kaleidoscope
Carnival, and the World’s Largest Bouncing Castle are also back in action
next summer.

And keep those ears to the ground over the next few weeks as we look forward
to announcing the first of our new creative entertainment spaces, guaranteed
to be thought-provoking, interactive, inspirational and engaging – you never
know what awaits you at Kaleidoscope 2020!.

So why not give the gift of festival fun and family magic this Christmas?
