Family Life

This summer treat the kids to the FIRST family festival in Ireland

Summer might not be here yet but it isn't far off.

And what better way to celebrate than taking the whole family to Ireland’s first family camping festival?

Kaleidoscope is running from June 28 – 30 at Russborough House in Blessington and it is a three-day extravaganza of music, arts and festival fun for all the family. 

Think high energy, full colour, multi-stage entertainment over 16 stages, designed to entice and enthrall all, from babes in arms to those eligible for a bus pass.

Want to hear the line- up?

You will get the chance to listen to Bell X1, Tom Odell, Wild Youth, The Riptide Movement, Dublin Gospel Choir and the Jerry Fish Electric Side Sho among many others.

Born out of Electric Picnic, Kaleidoscope harnesses the magic of Picnic’s entertainment and family campsites, tailoring the overall festival experience to the desires of the festival-going family and bringing the essence of Electric Picnic to a brand-new venue.

And it's ideal for parents, kids, and teens. 

Kaleidoscope offers specific programs for ‘smallies’, for 4-8, 8-12 and 12-16-year-olds, together with all the festival favourites for adults of all ages!

Children and teen programmes will take place within Russborough’s walled garden and an utterly enchanting fairy fort located on the forest’s edge.

Parents with babies, we also have something for you – the Baby Disco.

Not to mention, the woodland spa offers access to a selection of massage treatments, hot tubs, and seaweed baths

Kaleidoscope’s gates open the very day schools finish for the summer so what better way to kick-start the most exciting time of the year? 

Also, for the first time EVER in Ireland, Kaleidoscope will also offer ‘Car Camping’, reducing the trek from the car to the campsite to a few feet. 

Tickets go on sale on Tuesday, April 16 at 9.00am on Ticketmaster.
