Every July, the Galway International Arts Festival
turns the city into a two-week party. It is one of the most important cultural events in Europe. An eclectic mix of musicians, artists, writers and performers from all over the world descend on Galway in an incredible creative collision of theatre, dance, music, street spectacles and lots more. What to expect from this year’s Festival ? How about street performances, world premiers, award-winning producers & directors, super concerts and a spectacular architectural event.
The Festival is without a doubt the beating heart of a Galway summer and once the Absolut Big Top is erected the City goes into Festival mode.
Some of the amazing acts this year include The Coronas, RTE Concert Orchestra with DJ Jenny Greene and Beach Boys Legend Brian Wilson.
Taking over the city streets will be acts such as the wonderful i - Poppets & Chariots of The Sea.
This year’s Festival takes place from the 17th July to the 30th July and the full line up is available by visiting giaf.ie. The Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Galway is located in the city centre and is within walking distance to all the acts. There are ideal dining options before you hit the Absolut Big Top or other events.
