Night and Day Festival set to feature in new TV series this Sunday

Red Shoe Productions and TG4 are delighted to announce a brand-new Irish language music show ‘Night and Day; ó Dhubh go Dubh’ which is being broadcast on TG4 this Sunday night, 18th of June, at 10.30pm.

It is a five-part music series filmed at last year’s inaugural  Night and Day Festival at Clonalis House in Castlerea, Co Roscommon and features performances from Villagers, Mary Wallopers, Moxie, Orla Gartland and a host of other Irish and international acts.

Founded by Cruachan Productions, Night and Day featured brilliant music, a range of cultural acts as well as a fun, family-friendly itinerary that kept children, parents, and friends entertained across the Autumn Equinox weekend. The two-day camping festival drew crowds from all over the country for the final hurrah of festival season.

Hosted by Kayte O’Malley and Cian Ó Maonlaí, the series features headline performances from the Queen Medb stage and backstage interviews with artists, as well as all the craic and colour of the festival. True to form, TG4 commissioned this programme with the aim of breaking new talent, both on and off screen.

This year’s festival…

Night and Day is entering its second year and will take place in Lough Key Forest Park in Boyle, Co. Roscommon on the 24th and 25th of June this summer, with a heavy focus on showcasing Irish talent with a sprinkling of international acts while also providing lots of family friendly fun.

Cruachan Productions (the festival organisers) is a family-run company, comprised of brothers Brendan and Dermot Hurley and their nephew Craig Hughes.

Commenting ahead of the programme being broadcast Head of Communications Mr Hughes said:

“Last year was a really special event for us, seeing something that we dreamed about for so long coming together. We are so happy that Red Shoe Productions and TG4 were there to capture it all and to share the experience with the nation. We’re excited to showcase our festival on TG4, which has been a consistent supporter of the arts, and look forward to welcoming some of the audience to the second part of the adventure in our new location at the end of June.”
