Buncrana Music Festival to take place in August

One of Donegal’s most popular music festival has been given the green light to proceed for 2020.


The Buncrana Music Festival will be staged this summer despite fears over Covid-19.


The popular event which was  due to be held last month was postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak, however, permission has been granted for the festival to return on the August Bank Holiday weekend with Gavin James set to headline two of the four nights.


The capacity at the festival will be reduced to 500 each night including event staff and event organisers.


The organisers say that all necessary precautions will be in place including; contact tracing, temperature checks, social distancing signage, immediate sanitisation after use of toilet facilities and other amenities on site, PPE for all security and staff, who are already trained in Covid prevention measures, and a high security and Garda presence to ensure that guidelines are adhered to.


The festival will now run from July 30th to August 2nd.
