Féile – “The Trip To Tipp”, Returns to Thurles Town Sept 2018

Breaking News:

It was Oscar Wilde who stated that “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”  The event, known and remembered nationally as Féile; first introduced into the town of Thurles at Semple Stadium, by Independent TD Michael Lowry, is to be re-harvested again in September of this year, (2018).

The “Féile – TripTo Tipp” took place annually here in Thurles from 1990 to 1994, and then again in 1997 and now will be replicated again in 2018.

In 1995 it moved to Pairc Uí Chaoimh in Cork City, and took place indoors in The Point Depot in Dublin in 1996 before moving back to Thurles for a one day event in 1997.

From 1990, through the years, Thurles became home to thousands of weekend campers, with many of them arriving into the town by every possible known means of transport, attracted by headline bands included Meatloaf, INXS, Bryan Adams,  The Hothouse Flowers, The Cranberries, Crash Test Dummies, The Prodigy, Elvis Costello and a host of other International Music Stars.

We understand that this return event, (which will be a seated affair), this year will include bands like Galway & Dublin band “The Stunning”, formed back in 1987 and the Dublin alternative rock band “An Emotional Fish”, to name just two.

It is hoped that music lovers and those who attended past “Trips To Tipp” will still hold a strong wistful desire to return not just in thought, but in fact, to a former time in their lives, and relive the happiness they enjoyed in this former place and time.

Full details regarding this exciting event will be announced in ‘The Dome’, Semple Stadium, Thurles, tomorrow night (Tuesday 24th) at an invitational meeting at 7.30pm.

The Stunning In Concert, “Brewing Up A Storm”.


An Emotional Fish, “Celebrate”.

Same event will also be announced on the Ian Dempsey Radio Breakfast Show; on Today FM and the Tipp FM Breakfast Show between 8.00am and 9.00am tomorrow morning.
Tickets priced from €49.50 go on sale from 9.00am this coming Friday.
