This is our kind of gig, Sliotar playing in a Celtic village at the Nasavrky Lughnasad festival. The surroundings of the Nasavrky Lughnasad festival are something else! It is a reconstructed Celtic village that gives you an insight into how the Celts used to live. During the festival, there are people dressed up as celts all around the festival grounds. In fact, the only real signs of modern life are in the bar and the stage with its sound system.
Stepping back in time
There were fire pits roaring, farm animals wandering around and Celtic crafts being made right in front of your eyes. You could walk on the protective walls of the village and stroll through the craft market. The music was fantastic as the festival crowd danced the night away. There are some great bands this year as well, so I would expect nothing less than a great few days.
Helping out fellow Celts
We ended up playing at the Nasavrky Lughnasad last summer at a very short notice. Basically, a band that was coming over missed their connection flights due to delays and on the day of the show, we got the call. We feel very strongly about the Celtic music community, and if we can help a friend in need, we will do our best. So as a result, Sliotar cancelled our night off and headed to the festival. After several hours of driving at a small road, we arrived at the festival. It ended up being a great night.
