Festival Description

The annual family-friendly Vantastival Festival takes place at the lovely Dunany Estate over the May Bank Holiday Weekend. The festival gets its name from the campervan lifestyle — where artists and audiences alike enjoy camping out in modern and vintage vans — in addition to tents. The performances take place on 3 stages offering live music and entertainment. This is the only festival of its kind in Ireland where campervans are just as much a part of the events as the artists and audiences. To keep everyone well nourished and energized there will be gourmet food stalls, artisans, a healing area, children’s activities, and much more…. There is no extra charge for campervans and there is a dedicated tent campsite for those without vans! Children are welcome and those under 14 years of age — entrance is free!
