Up the Dergfest!

It’ll soon be time to tip the fedora hats, don those cowboy boots, and stick on your blue jeans as Dergfest is back… and it will kick off with country.

With festival frenzies now reaching fever pitch, this year’s Dergfest will see the magnificent Castle Park, in the Derg transformed into a venue fit for kings, queens and the best of local talent, including Lee Matthews, The Logues, the Davy K Project, and many, many more.

Taking place from Friday, September 10 to Sunday, September 12, Dergfest Musical Festival will also feature a more intimate feel this year, operating with smaller crowds to create social-distancing, to ensure the safety of performers and audiences members alike.


Star-studded line-up

Taking to the stage in electric fashion on Friday, September 10 will be Lee Matthews, Johnny Brady and Stephen Doherty in a spectacle aptly described as ‘Dergfest Goes Country’, while on Saturday, September 11, ‘Dergfest Presents Homelands’ is the triumphant theme of the evening.

The occasion will proudly place glittering homegrown talents, such as The Logues, The Davy K Project and Rogue Justice under the spotlight, ensuring an unforgettable evening for all involved.

And then on Sunday, September 12, the internationally-acclaimed Judge Jules – described as ‘the one DJ who has been there; done it all… and done it all again! – will descend upon the Castle, with guests alongside him, including Warren Adam, DJ Munchi, DJ Q and Ciaran Dolan.
