There will be music, acts and experiences that you won’t get anywhere else.
Why? Because KnockanStockan is more than just a festival:
It is the best place to go to find New Music
The setting: a breath-taking site overlooking the Blessington Lakes.
After great anticipation, KnockanStockan returns for 2019. With heavy emphasis on their ethos which is to support and… “Love New Music”, an impressive first line-up announcement sets the bar high.

Carlsberg Unfiltered, the headline sponsor of KnockanStockan 2019, is back again, bigger and better this year, with a Danish inspired venue. Inspired by Danish values of simplicity and connection with nature, which works in harmony with the beautiful backdrop of KnockanStockan at the lakes of Blessington. Guests can sit and watch performance art, intimate collaborations, interviews, comedy by day and dance to some of Ireland’s finest DJ collectives play on a stage in the centre of the festivities.
A much loved family friendly event, KnockanStockan is Ireland’s Premiere Small Festival which has earned the festival many awards throughout the years such as Best Line Up, Best Small Festival, Best Family Festival and Best Social Responsibility Award.
