What is K-FEST?

K-FEST, a dynamic arts festival with an emphasis on emerging artists, uses unoccupied spaces in Killorglin, Co. Kerry, transforming vacant retail outlets, deserted buildings, and even domestic homes into curated bespoke pop-up galleries and venues over the June Bank Holiday weekend.

Organised by a group of passionate and committed artists, business people, educators, and volunteers from all walks of life, the K-FEST team hosts more than 60 events in addition to a gallery trail, including live music performances by dozens of up-and-coming bands and musicians, as well as spoken word, drama, comedy, short films, street entertainment, and activities for kids and families.

K-FEST aims for cultural innovation and artistic exploration, as well as for showcasing fun, eclectic, and thought-provoking events while setting and maintaining high production standards across all our programmes.

But don’t take our word for it. Come and see for yourself.
