Music

Our reliably left-of-centre line-up mixes emerging talent with legendary acts from across the musical spectrum. With some of the most dynamic and diverse bookings on the island, we get excited about everything. Be it acoustic notes, electronic beats or waves of old-school soul floating through the forest.

Body&Soul has never been solely about the line-up, though we continue to redefine the typical festival format by booking musical pioneers and cult favourites alongside collaborations with Ireland’s foremost collectives. By doing so, we hope to create a vibrant, ear-catching line-up that appeals to every part of the sonic palate. Body&Soul is the place to see the next big artist before they blow up on the scene.

Wellbeing

Body&Soul isn’t just about the revelry, we give time to indulgence and recovery as well. Woodland rovers will find The Sanctuary nestled away in a quiet corner, where a therapy tent is filled with Ireland’s best therapists and masseuses and our workshop marquee hums with the sound of sound healers, yoga teachers, break dancers and more.

If you’re looking to soothe those weary dancing feet the Immerse Spa Experience features luxurious seaweed baths, woodfired hot tubs you can share with friends and Balinese steam treatments accompanied by turmeric tonic to restore and revitalise.

Our bookings will open in Spring 2018 for all your relaxation needs…

Victuals&Libations

Bond over food and drink that’s good enough for the Gods…

It wouldn’t be a bizarre and beautiful banquet without an exceptional gastronomic experience that reflect the sights, sounds and surrounds of Body&Soul. We’ve spent years seeking out vendors specialised in a vast variety of cuisines, styles and cultures to bring you a huge choice of delicious, organic and sustainable trucks, stalls, tents and trailers.

Expect freshly-shaken cocktails with foraged goodies, food from passionate feeders that represent the four corners of our island, epicurean brunches and woodland fine-dining. Nothing brings people together like great food and drink so come and break bread with us…

First Tastes

Calling all romantics and those looking for a dating experience with a difference, First Tastes at Body and Soul in the Summer of Love 2018 invites you to apply for a blind date with a like-minded spirit on Ballinlough Lake.

In an age of Tinder and online dating, First Tastes offers a truly unique amorous adventure in the matchmaking tradition of Lisdoonvarna and the Venetian gondola. On the date, the lucky couples will be welcomed and introduced to one another lakeside by the First Tastes team and then ferried to a beautifully decorated First Tastes raft on the water for an exclusive 30-minute picnic and a glass of champagne. Following the date, couples will be ferried back to shore where they can continue their date if they wish.
