The gender-balanced music and comedy weekend will take place this July in County Laois.


A brand new event, The Folly will run for two nights in the shadows of the majestic old ruins of Cullahill Castle. Dating back to the 1420s, this regal tower will provide a stunning backdrop to the main stage, nestled at the foot of the historic relic.


With a line-up featuring an equal gender balance of female and male musicians, performers, comedians and some of the best up-and-coming talent in the country, it’s an initiative that has been warmly welcomed by Electric Picnic. The popular festival has itself begun to address the gender balance issue at its festivals with the introduction of an all-female comedy line-up on Thursday night at The Hazel Wood stage at this year’s event.


Before night falls on the Saturday and the Folly entertainment kicks off, there will be plenty of daytime activity at the Cullahill Annual Fair. Fun for all ages, it includes a walk up the Cullahill mountain, a farmers’ market, village parade, games for the kids, storytelling, a tour of the hidden history of Cullahill Castle and the first-ever PaddyO’s Irish Porridge Making Championship, with Rachel Allen on hand to judge.

Tickets are limited for this groundbreaking event, so book early.
