2014 sees the launch of Philfest, a new independent alternative festival conceived and created by Roscommon promoter Philip Keaveney. The festival will cater to all types of Irish rock and metal and we cannot wait to get down there and meet new friends, hear new music and most importantly not be made feel like lepers at Irish Festivals due to a preference for hefty riffs and piercing screams!
This is about the only festival in this country putting on such a varied lineup and here at FMR we’re really excited to see our bands such as Kerouac, Beltbuckle Overdrive, Twisted Autocracy, Snowblind and The Boy in the Attic alongside such a stellar lineup of Irish talent.
