While music-lovers scramble for Taylor Swift and Coldplay tickets, a new “microfestival”, Resonance, on the shores of Lough Derg has created a new battle for tickets
Resonance is a ‘festival of ideas’ and was inspired by the talks of TED and the music of Other Voices which will take place this September 6 and 7.
The event, which is entirely volunteer-led, takes place in the 13th Century Cathedral in Killaloe, which looks over the shores of Lough Derg at the stunning twin towns of Killaloe, County Clare, and Ballina, County Tipperary.
The lineup is an eclectic mix of nature-inspired networking, music and talks. Included are; forest bathing, hiking, a ukulele gathering, a design-thinking workshop and the core event, an evening of inspirational talks and music from near and far.
International speakers will cover a range of topics from freediving to economics, design thinking to astrophysics, golfing innovation to nature-based wellness in a series of short, inspirational talks at St. Flannan’s Cathedral. Additional fringe events are taking place at a range of wonderful local venues in Clare and Tipperary.
Full festival tickets are available for a limited time so we suggest you waste no time getting your hands on them. Guests from further afield can take advantage of the Resonance attendee discount at the four-star Lakeside Hotel, Killaloe, which is a short walk from many of the festival activities.
“Resonance is a truly innovative event that we are delighted to support. With a unique focus on connecting old and new, this event provides a fantastic opportunity for visitors to connect, share and learn, with so much to experience in the remarkable location.”
This event is supported by Fáilte Ireland and IRDG Innovation Skillnet, Ireland’s leading Innovation Network, with additional support from Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands and the Lakeside Hotel.
