ALS Area By Area
Our beautiful main stage, a bespoke build designed and created by our dear friends Mammals +, Further Afield is nestled in a perfect corner of the back lawns of The Manor – and is set up equally for an afternoon’s lounging or a late night party with some top class Irish and select international guests.
Debuting in 2022 – The Front is our lovely second stage, housed in a gorgeous tent at the (you guessed it) the front of The Manor and home to a very carefully selected collection of emerging Irish acts, and a hand picked selection of international guests.
Another 2022 debut – and Another great collaboration with Mammals + , Tree Haus is our new late night arena. Expect absolutely top class, roaring house music and cutting edge live acts on the stage that we are most proud of. Come dance with us under the red tower, and under the trees!
WAY OUT THERE
This cosy tipi sits on the side of the Manor lawn and plays host to a slightly more nuanced cohort of djs and selectors – with everything from world sounds, jazz, fusion sounds – and straight up party classics. This is a softer landing for those with wider pallets, and dancing feet.
Another cosy tips – but this time perfectly pitched on the banks of the River Deel, which winds it’s way through The Manor grounds, and through The Mellow Meadow – our oasis away for all the hubbub of the main festival area. Adventure through the woods and arrive to a programme of music, talks and more from our dearest friend Young Hearts Run Free. Expect incredible creative tales, heart stopping music, and ambient interludes to wind the night down.
THE ISLAND WOODS
Take a journey into the woods! This beautiful glade in the woods is home to a special programme of traditional music and amazing talent from the local area and beyond with thanks to our friends Meath Arts Office and The Baltimore Fiddle Fair.
THE MELLOW MEADOW
Adventure through the woods and arrive to The Mellow Meadow – our oasis or calm away for all the hubbub of the main festival area nestled on the banks of the gentle River Deel. The MM hosts our ALS Wellness Area with a dedicated programme of Yoga, Massage and workshops, the crucial Bosca Beatha Sauna, The ALS River Swimming Deck, and of course, Moon River – another cosy tipi hosted by our dearest friend Siobhan Kane AKA Young Hearts Run Free – and a programme of music, talks and so much more. Expect incredible creative tales, heart stopping music, and ambient interludes to wind the night down.
THE SHIFT YARD
We were worried we might loose the essence of The Shack when we moved into The Yard, but instead we just got more Shack for our buck – it’s a vibe!
WAY OUT FRONT
NEW for 2022 a daytime vibe at The Front of The Manor – with a hand picked selection of djs who will set the tone as you grab a coffee and food. Easy listening, laid back vibes all the way here.
