Our Story

Groove Festival brings together the perfect blend of music, food, and fun activities to create a feel good festival for the whole family. Since its launch in 2013, Groove has been firmly established as one of Ireland’s most loved independent summer festivals. And this August 19-20, Groove Festival returns bigger and better than ever before with even more on offer to see, hear, taste and do.


Groove Festival, established in 2013, brought to life a new, fully independent festival experience suitable for the whole family. Killruddery; the world-renowned gardens and house, was the perfect choice for this summer escape, its unique location offering an oasis of calm, open space for well-being, fun and creativity.

Over the last four years, Groove Festival has seen hundreds of world-renowned and home grown talent grace it’s stages, from David Gray and Paloma Faith to Irish favourites Damien Dempsey and The Delorentos.


The eclectic line up of music has been complemented by an array of activities for the young and young at heart, from Celtic Kitchen’s Fullacht Fia cooking experience to family favourites like zorbing, archery and the Killruddery petting zoo.
