Tickets: £15.00 @ eventbrite.com & ourbackyard.co.uk

Gates open at 2 and finishes at 11pm.

It’s a bold move to self-finance an open air concert in the backyard of a small rural farmstead…

Especially one that’s so discreetly hidden away in the idyllic panorama of Gilford, County Down- that’s in between Banbridge and Portadown for those of you reaching for the GPS. Yet, despite the inherent challenges in organising and promoting such an event, Our Back Yard Festival officially returns on Saturday 25th June, showcasing an even more extensive line-up of performers and attractions, all delivered with the same vested community interest that so defined the 2014 edition. In fact, the feverish anticipation that followed the official announcement of the upcoming sequel, is proof positive that the inaugural event was no fluke, rather that it was a welcome cultural addition to what is an untapped part of the country.

It would be difficult to find an open air event anywhere in the country that is both so reasonably priced and so well organised. One that can boast of such stellar performers and yet where the corporate influence is glaringly absent. From planning to execution, the event provides numerous opportunities for community involvement. Amateur photographers are welcomed to the site, cinematographers will be on hand to document proceedings and local college students are even given the opportunity to coordinate various aspects of the big day, not to mention the abundance of craft stalls and gourmet food options that will also be in attendance. Encouragement, support, and positivity are the key ingredients of the day. That is what Our Back Yard is all about. A festival with a face.

On-site parking will be available as before, however this year will also see the introduction of overnight camping. Bring a deck chair, bring a tent, bring some friends, grab a gourmet burger and throw down a pint of the good stuff. Join us on June 25th for the most underrated music event of the summer. Official line-up announcements are just around the corner so make sure you’re up to speed by following the Our Back Yard Festival Facebook page and the official Twitter feed.
