Alongside music, there’s Ireland’s biggest Surf Event, Skating, BMX, Beach Sports and much more packed into the 3 full days of partying by the beach.

Festival Director Ray O’Donoghue says “Sea Sessions was born in 2008 so next year is our official 10th Birthday! We had such a blast at this years festival that we said why not get tickets on sale really early? We’ve added an instalment option too so you don’t have to pay all at once. There’s been nothing but positive feedback so lets hope 2018 is even more special.’
