Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles partners with Vantastival


Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is partnering once again with Vantastival, with Le Galaxie and The Stunning confirmed as headliners for the festival in June.

Le Galaxie, who have established themselves as Ireland’s top live dance act with their brand of thundering electro, will take to the Volkswagen Main Stage on Saturday, June 2. The band’s third album ‘Pleasure’ is due for a full US and Europe album release in March. Also releasing a new album next month, 90’s Irish rock icons The Stunning will headline the Sunday night of Vantastival. One of Ireland’s biggest bands with a string of number one albums and hit singles, including the anthemic ‘Brewing up a Storm’, The Stunning are known for the quality of their live shows.

2018 is the third year running that Vantastival has been “powered by” Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, with the successful partnership winning “Best Sponsorship” at the Event Industry Awards in 2017.

The pairing is a perfect fit for the campervan-themed festival, which will return to a 3-day format this year over the June bank holiday weekend. The line-up also includes Irish/Sierra Leonean songstress Loah, who’ll bring her unique blend of genre-bending Afro-soul to Vantastival, while multi-instrumentalist RSAG will perform with a virtual band while his drums, vocals and sampler are mixed with an array of hypnotic imagery and silhouettes projected on-screen. Dublin rockers The Hot Sprockets, Choice Music Prize nominee Marlene Enright, critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Marc O’Reilly and the explosive trad of The Bonny Men will also appear at the festival. The bulk of the line-up is yet to be announced and a large number of exciting up-and-coming Irish acts will be added to the bill in the coming weeks. Now in its ninth year, Vantastival has established its reputation for diverse and quality line-ups showcasing the very best of Irish acts.

Vantastival 2018 will take place from Friday to Sunday June 1-3 at Beaulieu House & Gardens, Drogheda.

Other attractions will include The Volkswagen Campervan Cook-off, interactive art installations, comedy, festival traders, a host of children’s activities and much more.

Vantastival has something for everyone, with or without a campervan. 3-day, 2-day and single day tickets are on sale now from www.vantastival.com and Eventbrite.
