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.
