Carlsberg Unfiltered

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.
