Forest Fest is aimed at a discerning audience, our objective to ensure a quality, close-up, close quarters, quality gig experience with numbers strictly limited.

A summertime party atmosphere for 2023 will bring dancing to the crossroads of Emo for the weekend of July 21 – 23. Our plan is for you the fans to be at the heart of this event.

You provide the rhythm, we’ll provide the beat…and the tasty craft beers, the fabulous food, the classy cocktails, and the cracking tunes.

The venue for Forest Fest is at the crossroads in Emo Village and at the crossroads of Ireland, only 10 minutes from the towns of Portlaoise, Portarlington, and Mountmellick .

The forest skyline in the spectacular parklands of the iconic heritage house at Emo Court just across the road from our venue is what inspires our festival name and logo.

After an extremely successful 2022 inaugural event we are so looking forward to bringing you Forest Fest 2.
