This summer from July 7th – 9th Otherside Music Festival returns to the incredible setting of Rock Farm in Slane Co. Meath. Creating three magical days and nights celebrating music, dance, comedy, conversation, wellness, food, and connection.
Otherside is a community with togetherness at its core. A voyage of discovery into the historical heart of Ireland, away from the daily grind and towards mischief and friendship. From the enchanted forest roots to the marquee roof – Bigger, Bolder and Better than before! Whether you fancy a morning swim to reset, an afternoon at the comedy club, feasting with friends in the banquet hall or front and centre at the mainstage, we want you to enjoy the festival at your pace. Gather your tribe, we’re waiting for you on the Otherside!
Bombay Bicycle Club have continuously released earworms with singles like ‘Always Like This’, ‘Luna’, ‘Shuffle’, the list goes on to #1 albums and sell-out arenas. The band received rapturous responses at last year’s festivals. Also gracing the Otherside mainstage is Ciara Mary-Alice Thompson aka CMAT – a pop phenomenon with charisma, style and sensational tunes. SBTRKT aka Aaron Jerome brings his amazing live performance and light show. Having remixed for heavyweights such as Radiohead and Underworld, Jerome likes the music to speak for itself.
Prepare to experience Australian four-piece Confidence Man. A portable party designed to make you dance your socks off. Think Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder discovering house music via Dee-lite. An exponentially rising artist, Genesis Owusu released his soul-bearing debut ‘Smiling With No Teeth’ in 2021 receiving global acclaim. His album track, “Gold Chains” was included in President Obama’s Favourite Music of 2021. Danish native, Kölsch rewrites the rulebook on techno production, setting it on a melodic, emotion-induced course.
British-Japanese queen of the electronic underground Maya Jane Coles is an international DJ with over 3 million followers on Soundcloud alone! Tommy Lefroy is the soft rock project of London and LA-based songwriters Wynter Bethel and Tessa Mouzourakis. Juxtaposing biting lyrics with dreamscape vocals, to achieve their cinematic sound. La La is the alter-ego of Glaswegian DJ Lauren Andrew. Lauren’s sets showcase her off-the-cuff selections of classic and modern House music.
The gorgeous site on Rock Farm sits in the shadow of the famous Slane Castle, a mere 40-minute drive from Dublin on the banks of the River Boyne. Spreading beneath a canopy of native forests and through the picturesque meadows of the Boyne Valley, Rock Farm is a lush playground for this intimate gathering.
MUSIC – COMEDY – LATE NIGHT STAGES
Explore new sights and sounds through a host of cleverly designed and beautifully decorated unique areas. Discover new bands and enjoy firm favourites at our Town Hall Stage, relax and laugh with friends at the Comedy Club or get lost in dance with electronic DJs at A Place To Dance. The music doesn’t end with our headliners, with a choice of two late-night areas, get your trad fix at the Cobblestone pop-up or spend the wee hours Beneath The Trees discovering a deeper side of electronica.
WELLNESS & RELAXATION
RISE Nordic Spa will return once again to the idyllic setting of Rock Farm to bring their grounded, restorative wellness program to the festival. Recharge with a morning swim in the natural lake or chill out by the poolside cocktail bar, the perfect spot to find your zen. Catch your breath and wash away the sins of the night before with a wood-fired hot tub or Nordic-style sauna. Morning yoga sessions and a full wellness retreat awaits.
CAMPING & ACCOMMODATION
Our sleeping options aim to restore you for another day of adventure. Choose between our general campsite or boutique camping upgrades, from beautifully kitted-out Yurts to pre-pitched tents ready and waiting for your arrival.
FOOD & DRINK OFFERINGS
The best of local food traders will be on site offering an authentic taste of the Boyne Valley with rich and nourishing quick bites on the go. Grab brunch with pals between stages or book in for an evening meal with the return of our fully-seated bookable Zhug Banquet, bringing the finest selection of North African and Middle Eastern style cuisine using local produce. A number of pop-up bars will be stocked with refreshing cocktails, delicious wines, and ice-cold draught beers.
