Opel stars in 80s music festival


Opel has been unveiled as the official car partner to the Forever Young Festival 2023, a unique 80s music event taking place from 14th–16th July in Palmerstown House Estate, County Kildare.

Said to be the fastest-growing music festival in Ireland, Forever Young has positioned itself as a “climate-aware” event that also raises funds for charity, Animal Welfare and Veterinary Care Ireland, returning this summer for the third time.

James Brooks, managing director at Opel Ireland said: “Opel has enjoyed more than a century of rich history, garnering an incredible heritage that has shaped and moulded the much-loved brand we see today.

“There’s no doubt the German brand rose to new design heights in the 1980s, when the legendary Manta and Kadett were familiar sights on Irish roads.

“Indeed, the beloved models lend their design cues to today’s multi-award-winning Opel Mokka and Astra ranges.

“So, a nod to this wonderful history and celebrating our brand’s journey to today, we are proud to partner with the Forever Young Festival as official car partners.”
