24th Fiddler’s Green International Festival

18th-25th July 2010, Rostrevor Co. Down Northern Ireland.

The Fiddlers Green Festival began 24 years ago as a one day event and now extends to eight days and nights of music, culture and crack. With nearly 200 events the festival caters for music lovers, families who wish to enjoy a safe child focused festival and those who come to soak up the scenery, friendliness and the free outdoor entertainment.

Based in the scenic village of Rostrevor the Festival provides outdoor ceilis, a free open air stage, lunch and night time folk clubs, art exhibitions , walks, talks, a full children’s programme and even a literary pub crawl. A wide variety of musical tastes are catered for, primarily traditional and folk but also classical and blues.

Each year the Festival bestows two awards, the Hall of Fame Award which celebrates a life long achievement in Irish music. (2009 Mairtin O’Connor) and The Creative Arts Award to acknowledge achievements in the Arts and Literary fields (1st recipient 2000 Seamus Heaney) The recipients of these awards are traditionally named closer to the festivals formal launch in June.
