Delorentos will top the bill in Bellurgan this May bank holiday weekend. They are currently in the running for a second Meteor Choice Music Prize for their 2014 album ‘Night Becomes Light’, having previously won the award in 2012. Their single Show Me Love is also on the shortlist for song of the year and the critically-acclaimed band have big plans for 2015, including the headline slot at Vantastival on Sunday 3rd May. Satirical Welsh rappers Goldie Lookin Chain have a new album due out in April and will headline the Saturday night.
As always we’ll keep our distinctly Irish focus this year. RSAG and Jinx Lennon will return due to popular demand and some of the other great acts who’ll appear include local lads The Flaws, Hot Press & Jagermeister Freezer Sessions “Live Band of the Year 2014” Rackhouse Pilfer, and Temper-Mental Misselayneous, a.k.a. Elayne Harrington, who recently starred in RTE’s Connected.
