The unique blend of quality acts and the stunning location right on the beach in Bundoran on the Wild Atlantic Way means festival goers can relax and watch international surfers battle it out in the water wander through the six different areas that make up the Sea Sessions experience.
Festival director Ray O’Donoghue says “We’re more than happy with this latest announcement. There’s so much Irish talent out there it’s great that we can make such a significant announcement with purely Irish acts. We’re big fans of Delorentos and thrilled to have them back. Chasing Abbey have been played off the Radio and are definitely going places. Jerry Fish will be performing and also on MC duties for the weekend. With just over 2 Months to go we can’t wait for our 10th Birthday this year.
“And while the music is crucial, Sea Sessions is about so much more with our Barefoot Olympics being played throughout the day including volleyball, beach soccer, tag rugby and this year a colour run around the scenic Roguey head.
