It Takes A Village returns for its third outing at Trabolgan Holiday Village, Cork, from 8th – 10th May 2020. A unique and fun-filled weekend of music, house parties, chilling by the pool and getting to know your neighbours, on the stunning south coast of Ireland.
This is the festival where you ditch the tents and leave the camping to the kids! It Takes A Village is a weekend for the more discerning festival goer… If you’re looking for an unreal party with a bit more comfort and convenience, then ITAV is the festival for you. The only festival in Ireland where the entire festival community checks in to self-catering houses on the festival grounds. Fill up your fridge, and enjoy a nice bath after a night on the tiles before tucking yourself into a cosy bed.
It Takes a Village 2020 have released their first line up announcement, featuring world class DJ’s, producers, bands, and some of the hottest Irish acts on the scene right now. They’ll be playing in a multitude of venues all around the village; ballrooms and back bars, amusement arcades and houses, swimming pools and front porches. There’s lots more to come and some new surprises to be announced over the coming months.
The first acts announced include:
One of New York’s most legendary house aficionados JOE CLAUSSELL who will be joined by Cork’s FISH GO DEEP for a 6 hour voyage through spiritual, sacred and sweaty house music; MAD PROFESSOR – one of the pioneers of the UK Dub scene who has worked with the likes of U Roy, Lee Scratch Perry, Jah Shaka and Macka B on his Ariwa label; a live set from ROMARE who brings his cut and paste samples of African influenced dusty jazz, psychedelic and blues music mashed and meandered together seamlessly with his electronic musings becoming his signature sound; SCARY ÉIRE whoblend together hip hop, reggae, jazz, punk, ska, and traditional Irish, return to Cork for the first time since their legendary Sir Henry’s show; Amsterdam-based ALTIN GÜN – essential interpreters of the Anatolian rock and folk legacy and who are a leading voice in the emergent global psych-rock scene; and a performer, an entrepreneur, and now a religion… LYNKS AFRIKKA, the brainchild of Bristol based producer Elliot Brett, joins the village. Lynks draws upon the legacy of 90s club-kid culture, merging music, drag and theatre in an unapologetically queer and utterly unique way.
And continuing their legacy, the festival once again will host a strong contingent of the very finest Irish acts: JUNIOR BROTHER – PILLOW QUEENS – GAY FUTURE with EDDIE KAY & RAF DADDY (The 2 Bears) – BANTUM, GOD KNOWS & DENISE CHAILA – TPM – HAPPYNESS – VICKY LANGAN – CHERYM – PERCOLATOR – ALEX GOUGH – THE MARY WALLOPERS – EFA O’NEILL – CLUB COMFORT with ROO HONEYCHILD, SELKY, BALIBOC – CAOILIAN SHERLOCK and RISING DAMP.
It Takes A Village has changed the concept of an Irish festival. It’s put a roof over its head, made its bed and popped the kettle on!
