A festival is something you go to as a spectator, but a carnival is something you participate in” 
 
 
Townlands Carnival 2018 is set to bring it up a notch this summer with the announcement of UK legends Leftfield as the festival's first headliners set for Rusheen Farm, Co Cork, this July. The hugely influential UK pioneers are set for a classics inspired DJ set and will be joined by Irish festival legends-in-the-making King Kong Company, along with a Ghetto Funk Takeover featuring Stanton Warriors, JFB, WBBL & Ghetto Funk Allstars.
 
 
To say that Townlands Carnival has left an impression on the Irish festival scene is an understatement. Bringing together Music, Art, Circus and Carnival, the team is dedicated to bringing fans a weekend of escaping the norm and exploring the bizarre in all its incantations. Back in the wooded fields of Rusheen Farm, the festivities are set to take place on July 20 - 22.
 
Now in its fourth year, the purpose-built Townlands' village becomes a home for the weekend; bringing together a celebration of artists from all disciplines and expertise. Five stages, each dedicated to a heady mixture of reggae, hip hop, folk, rock and dance music, give a platform for both established and up and coming acts against a theatrical and visually inspired backdrop. With a surge of positive feedback since last year’s event, the ethos and dream of the Townlands Carnival team has come to life - managing to conjure an inclusive community over one weekend that has something for the entire family; theatrical escapades, fancy dress and interactive art installations - all the while bringing fans of multiple genres together with a stellar lineup.
