Ryan McMullan and The Wood Burning Savages are just two of the highlights appearing at this year’s Swell Festival.
In less than seven weeks we will be welcoming people to the beautiful island of Arranmore off the coast of Donegal and as we celebrate our fifth anniversary, this is sure to be one of the best line-ups we’ve had to-date.
Portaferry’s Ryan McMullan has been building a great reputation in the music scene on the island of Ireland for years. Since opening for Ed Sheeran on European tour in 2017, his career has reached new heights and we are so thrilled that he will be joining us for the very first time.
What can we say about The Wood Burning Savages. Close friends to the festival, the Derry band has appeared at Swell on a number of occasions. Their debut album Stability has been receiving rave reviews both at home and abroad. If you haven’t seen TWBS live before, you are in for a high octane performance that will have you rocking out!
While they are first-timers to the Swell Festival line-up, Ye Vagabonds are no strangers to Arranmore. In fact, the folk duo has very close family ties to the island and are regular visitors which will make their appearance particularly special.
Over the years we have had many bands return to the festival and we are so thrilled that Accidents In The Workplace are once again appearing. One of the highlights of 2017, the funky Louth band and their charismatic lead singer Lauren Murphy are sure to bring the house down, yet again.
Other acts appearing include For Foresters, Kneecap, Gaze Is Ghost, Without Willow, TPM,Thumper and many more. Keep posted on our social media sites for further updates in the coming weeks.
