Downpatrick rockers Ash top eclectic line-up for Stendhal Festival

Ash headline the Stendhal Festival in Limavady on August 11

NORTHERN Ireland music legends Ash are headlining this year's Stendhal Festival on Friday August 11, organisers have revealed.

The Downpatrick rockers top an eclectic bill, the first portion of which was announced yesterday, that includes folk star Sharon Shannon and other northern luminaries including Ciaran Lavery, The Four of Us and Anthony Toner, as well as Jealous of the Birds, Ryan Vail, Parisian/Manhattan Electro swing Ginkgoa, German electronica icon Ulrich Schnauss and up-and-coming Derry performer Roe.

Ross Parkhill, organiser of the multi-award-winning Limavady-based festival, told The Irish News: “We are really pleased to be welcoming so many top acts to Stendhal again this year. Last year was by far and away our best year ever so we have been working incredibly hard in the knowledge that we have to top it.

“The first part of the music line-up I think shows that we are on our way to doing that and that Stendhal is once again going to be the most unmissable music event in Northern Ireland this summer.”

:: Tickets for the event on August 11 and 12 are on sale now at and from local ticket outlets next week. For more info check out the Stendhal Festival Facebook page.
