Body and Soul Festival is redefining what the festival experience should be. Situated just one hour outside of Dublin on a stunning country estate, the musical line-up boasts gender-bending Fever Ray, post-punk kids Shame and electro god Jon Hopkins. However, there’s more to this three-day event than the music… take time out for a spa experience, with seaweed baths and wood-fired hot tubs; arts and culture is in the spotlight with talks, spoken-word performances, immersive theatre and visual installations; and keep the kids happy with yoga sessions, nature trails, face painting and the soul kids disco. Expect the unexpected!
