Firestone at Vantastival 2019

Vantastival 2019 is driven by Firestone, and is a key event within the Firestone European music activation, an original programme of music festivals across Europe.

A total of 25 acts will perform over the June bank holiday weekend in the Firestone Music Station, a unique structure with the aesthetic of a 1930s Route 66 gas station and decked out with quirky custom-made tyre furniture. Firestone aims to encourage and support emerging music talent in Ireland and the Firestone Music Station is an intimate experience that brings together fans and passionate musicians.

Firestone aims to shine a spotlight on the great musical talent that Ireland has to offer through its Road to the Main Stage competition, in conjunction with Vantastival.
