Running since 1990, London Feis Festival celebrates Irish music, priding itself on headlining with combining well established acts and new acts, this year sees Bob Dylan, The Cranberries and Van Morrison headlining. This is a good one to take your mums and dads too.
The festival describes itself as Irish in flavour, international in reach, and brings a celebration of Gaelic culture to London's Finsbury Park, hosted over two days in June. The festival continues what Fleadh Festival brought to the park every year from 1990 to 2004, renaming it Feis, the festival now provides a fresh outlook on Irish music.
There will be no Feis in 2012.
2011 saw Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Thin Lizzy, Christy Moore, The Cranberries, The Gaslight Anthem, Imelda May, Horslips Clannad, Jimmy Cliff and more
