Castleknock Music Festival

Castleknock is a beautiful part of Dublin to live in, tucked in between the M50, the Phoenix Park and the Strawberry Beds. Studded right around the  landscaped community are the treasured buildings of Castleknock Castle, Luttrelstrown Castle,  Farmleigh Estate and Dunsink Observatory, and a host of much more modern buildings such as churches, schools,colleges,shopping-centres, golf clubs and sporting facilities. And lots of really nice family homes, full of interesting people.

Castleknock is perfectly situated and suited to hold an annual music festival, and when the Castleknock Music Festival was first held last year, it proved an outstanding success because it put families at the centre of its programming.

Supported by Fingal County Council, the Arts Council of Ireland, The Embassy of the Russian Federation in Ireland and the Educational and Cultural Centre at the Russian Orthodox Church in Ireland, MS Solicitors, Harry Kearns Orthodontics and Children of Lir Gymnastic Club, the 2018 Castleknock Music Festival will bring leading Irish and International musicians to Castleknock to play for the public in in the fabulous music venues of Farmleigh and St.Brigid’s Church.
A key element of the 2018 programme will be the celebration of 45 years of Irish-Russian diplomatic relations by presenting an exciting Irish-Russian Programme at the Opening Concert in Farmleigh.

Classical, Jazz, Trad and Contemporary music styles will all be represented at the Castleknock Music Festival, and will give its audience the chance to hear the works of eminent Irish composers. It will also give young Irish artists the opportunity to show their talents in public, including performances of Saint Brigid’s National School Choir, winner of the prestigious ESB Feis Ceoil Choir of the Year in 2017 and 2018, and Castleknock Community College Choir.

Music is a powerful instrument of cultural integration and celebration, ideal for the ethnically diverse community of Castleknock. Participation in the Castleknock Musical Festival is a leading step in the pursuit of excellence for families and young people, given the combined discipline and creativity that music demands. But at its core, the Castleknock Musical Festival is about passion – passion for the genius of music which has the power to move and inspire creative participation, like no other medium.
