Ireland’s Premier Independent Music & Arts festival Knockanstockan returns on 19th – 21st of July 2019
+ Launch Party April 18th @ Lost Lane, Dublin
+ KS Announces Carlsberg Unfiltered Stage & Danish Quarter
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 set the bar high in Feb, and now we bring you the second line-up announcement.

A diverse musical line-up will be accompanied by additional treats for festival fans this year, featuring new collaborations, several international artists, spectacular new stage designs, new areas to explore, an array of art installations and endless performance art in many glorious forms. Each new addition to the festival will be a tasteful continuation to the KnockanStockan we know and love with additional features both complementing and elevating the festival’s remarkable reputation.
Carlsberg Unfiltered, the headline sponsor of KnockanStockan 2019 is back again, bigger and better this year, with a Danish inspired takeover. Carlsberg Unfiltered is inspired by Danish values of simplicity and connection with nature, and its name reflects how the lager is made. The brewers have removed the filtration process, which leaves more natural flavours and body in the lager and produces a premium, great tasting, cloudy pilsner with subtle floral and hop notes.
Carlsberg Unfiltered Stage
KnockanStockan are excited to have Carlsberg return this year to collaborate on an exciting venue space with a Danish twist. The Unfiltered stage is making a comeback where 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.
The Carlsberg Danish Quarter
Sit back, relax and soak up the atmosphere the Danish Way. The main bar, the Danish Quarter hosted by Carlsberg, will overlook the main stage so you can enjoy a few pints whilst soaking in the festival atmosphere. Skål!
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. The official Launch night will take place at Dublin’s newest Music Venues, Lost lane at 6.30pm on April 18th.
