VANTASTIVAL 2019: 31st May – 2nd June

Beaulieu House & Gardens



Thanks for Coming!

Wow – what a weekend!

The weather was incredible, the people were amazing, the bands were awesome and we had one hell of a hooley in Beaulieu over the June bank holiday weekend. Thank you to everyone who came and helped to make it the best Vantastival yet. We’ll be uploading all our photos and videos on our gallery page over the next few weeks so you can look back and relive the memories!

Special thanks to our title sponsor, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Ireland, for believing in us again this year. Thanks also to Firestone and IMRO, both continuing to support new music at Vantastival. Most of all, thanks to Cara Konig-Brock of Beaulieu House and Gardens for letting us hold our event at her beautiful home again.

We’ll be taking a little break in July and August and will be back with a bang in September when planning begins for the big one – Vantastival 2019, our 10th festival!! Have a great summer, from all the Vantastival crew xxx
