Beyond The Pale is back, June-16th-18th 2023 with Headliners Hot Chip announced

Following the sell-out success of Ireland’s newest music and arts festival this summer; BEYOND THE PALE announces its return in summer 2023 on the weekend of 16th – 18thJune.

A 3 day camping festival taking place across seven areas in the spectacular natural beauty of Glendalough Estate in the Wicklow Mountains; Beyond the Pale’s debut three months ago made a huge impression on artists and punters alike, especially with its overall atmosphere. Electronic music veterans Orbital declaring it ‘one of the best festivals we’ve ever played’ and Kildare singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan describing it as ‘absolutely magical’.

Beyond the Pale also announces its first headline act for 2023 – the electronic pop legends HOT CHIP – the consistently brilliant live five-piece from London who just released their eighth album Freakout/Release this month on Domino Records – yet another Hot Chip album to achieve great critical and commercial success, hitting the number 1 spot in both the UK Dance Albums and UK Independent Albums chat.   

This will be Hot Chip’s only show in Republic of Ireland next summer.

More nuggets from the deliciously handpicked diverse line-up of Beyond the Pale will also be revealed next week in advance of the tickets going on sale, with over 150 acts in total to be revealed in the coming weeks and months.

Tickets go on sale next Friday 30th September only from the festival website with a special early bird rate.
