Galway Arts Festival is one of the biggest arts festivals in Ireland. Established in 1978, it has long attracted both a national and international audience of lovers of the arts. The 2014 edition runs from the 14th to the 27th of July.
For these 2 weeks the city of Galway comes alive showcasing a hugely diverse range of entertainers and events across music, visual arts, dance, debates and family events.
The National have been confirmed as one of the first headline acts performing at The Big Top. Ardal O'Hanlon is a marquee name amongst many comedians, but there will be many more beside. Lots of free and eclectic events like the fire-breathing dragon which will roam the streets of Galway, great spectacle for adults and children alike. This is the mere tip of the ice-berg as Galway Arts Festival is really 6 festivals rolled into one with theatre, spoken word, debate, music, comedy and so much more all to be enjoyed. If you go to one arts festival this year, then Galway has to be on the short-list.
The first big headliner of 2014 Galway Arts Festival has been confirmed as The National, who will be appearing at The Big Top.
