Going Dark for 2015

After ten years, thousands of artists, performers, writers, thinkers and adventurers, and untold thousands of visitors, it's no wonder we're taking a break. Yes, Kinsale Arts Festival is going dark for 2015. No, we're not insolvent: the Festival is totally debt free and we’re just pausing to rethink, re-imagine and reinvent.

A special thanks to all our loyal Friends, Funders and Sponsors and to everyone who's come down, dreamed up, taken part, supported, lifted and carried, and otherwise helped it all to happen every year.

Looking forward to the future - and thank you so much for being part of it.
