IRELAND'S FESTIVAL FOR EMERGING VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS

K-FEST has cemented its reputation as Ireland’s most important festival dedicated to celebrating the work of emerging artists. Each June bank holiday weekend the town of Killorglin Co. Kerry is transformed into a major hub of culture and creativity, with over 60 events taking place including workshops, music events, and craft markets. With a welcoming atmosphere that appeals to all ages, the town comes alive with numerous pop-up galleries, art installations and exhibitions taking place in disused buildings, empty shop-fronts and non-traditional arts spaces.
