Now in it’s 14th year, Sligo Live celebrates folk roots and indie music on the last weekend in October. Since 2005 the festival has highlighted Sligo’s vibrant contemporary music scene and rich musical heritage intermingled with international stars like Van Morrison, Buena Vista Social Club, Elvis Costello, Rufus Wainwright, Jools Holland, The Waterboys, Joan Armatrading, Sheryl Crow, Villagers, and Imelda May.
Sligo Live has joined Cambridge, Edmonton and Celtic Connections as a festival which welcomes music lovers of all ages and nationalities; where the only objective is to enjoy good music with great people on the wonderful Wild Atlantic Coast.
Sligo Live is proud to present Arrivals 2017. Aiming to give new and emerging artists an opportunity to join the festival lineup, Arrivals is a series of intimate gigs held in city-centre venues across the festival weekend.
