Iron and Wine and Jesca Hoop announced for Open House Festival

The Details

Open House Festival

1st - 31st August 2016

Sam Beam joins Tom Robinson and more as Open House Festival unveil their first-look lineup.

Iron and Wine’s Sam Beam and Jesca Hoop will perform a very special joint show in Bangor’s Marine Court Hotel as part of the 2016 Open House Festival. This will be Sam’s first show in Northern Ireland in six years.


They’re joined on the festival bill by legendary artist and BBC 6 Music presenter Tom Robinson who’ll be providing a night of stories and songs. Of course, there’s always much more than music to Open House Festival and the 2016 festival, set to run from 1st to 31st August is no different.

Award-winning crime novelist Ian Rankin is an early announcement on the literary front, whilst those who enjoy their fayre a little more culinary will enjoy ‘Seafood and Shanties’ at The Salty Dog or the annual Bluegrass Picnic in Ward Park.

Movie lovers will be treated to a showing of the sumptuous musical number ‘Moulin Rouge’ and there’ll be the usual weekly sessions, record clubs, impromptu shows and some of the best music and Guinness you’ll find anywhere across the UK or Ireland this summer.

You can join us out in Bangor, Co. Down this August but until then head over to the Open House Festival 2016 website for more information on these shows and snap up some early tickets.
