New Year, New Date, New Venue!


We are re-inventing Vantastival this year with an intimate 2-day festival on a brand new site just outside Drogheda!  Beaulieu House and its stunning grounds will become our new home on the June bank holiday weekend, Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th June.

After four great years in Bellurgan Park, we felt it was time for a change and we believe our little festival will fit snugly into the beautiful surroundings of this 17th century manor house situated on the sloping banks of the river Boyne. We’d like to thank Eddie Toner and Bellurgan Park for graciously hosting us for the last four years and wish them all the best in their future events, hoping they put to good use the stages so lovingly crafted by our crew.

Following the horrific weather and resulting conditions suffered last year, in 2016 we are focused on increasing the quality of the Vantastival experience by reducing the scale of the event to produce a more intimate festival gathering. A total of only 1,000 tickets will be issued. A very limited number of earlybird tickets at €65 for two nights camping will go on sale this Thursday, 14th January. Full price camping tickets at €75 will be released online once the earlybirds are gone. Subject to availability, any tickets purchased on the gate will cost €85.

For the first time, this year we are taking a break from the usual open submission policy for bands and instead we’ll present a strong line-up including many of the most popular acts to have played the festival over the last six years.  The best bits about Vantastival will still stand – the family-friendly ethos, our BYOB policy, the non-commercial vibe, late night shenanigans and so much more. We hope to present the best possible version of Vantastival for the beautiful people who have always supported us in our festival journey.

Thank you all for your continuing support. More information will follow over the coming weeks.

We are very very excited to be back!
