A festival in Sligo will be the first of its kind in Ireland to go ahead under Covid-19 guidelines next summer.

Wild Roots plans to launch on the May Bank Holiday Weekend.

Acts like the Kaiser Chiefs, Damien Dempsey and James Morrison are pencilled in to perform over the three day event.

The family-friendly event will take place on the shores of Lough Gill, Co Sligo, which organisers hope will lead to a more immersive experience.

Director of the festival Neil O'Connell said "We have reimagined the festival experience, lovers of the outdoors can take a swim, have a paddleboard lesson, or hoist a sail."

The organisers say the event will abide by public health guidelines.

There will be socially distanced camping areas, regular disinfection stations and temperature checks as well as antigen testing for Covid-19 if needed.
