Overall, with music as diverse as its audience, Knockanstockan was a complete joy. No matter who and what you are, in the end, feeling free to be yourself is the most important thing. Seldom is this more apparent than at this beautiful little festival. We’ll be back! – HOTPRESS

Some even stated a hard obvious truth…. 😉

2019 will be remembered as a phenomenal year for fans of Irish music with so many genres showing substantial growth and development. Hype has been reverberating throughout the whole scene but too often these acts that are doing so well are overlooked by festival line-ups. This year, Knockanstockan is an exception to that rule with the entire line-up feeling like a homage to Irish growth.Boasting a line-up that incorporates the vast range of sounds on display in Ireland’s musical canon right now, Knockanstockan 2019 is admirable in its dedication to eclecticism and musical inclusivity and makes itself a fore-runner as one of the country’s best mid-sized festivals.– The Thin Air

With the reach and buzz over the weekend of the festival hitting over 500,000 across social platforms, it is a clear indication that the Irish Music Scene is as vibrant and epic as it’s ever been and that indeed Knockanstockan is as vital to delivering this message.
