Brain and Keith will be joining us not long after finishing up there UK wide tour this month. Giving Scottish fans a second chance to catch them, up close and personal on our Paddy’s stage, on the 16th March 2018.

General Manager and Wexford native, Eric Drought said: “I’m over the moon to have Boyzlife returning next year for the 4th or possibly the 5th time we can’t really remember and neither can they!”

The boyz will be joined by a whole host of other Irish talent over the course of the festival which runs from the 15th-18th of March 2018. This year Paddy’s Day itself also plays host to the England vs Ireland Six Nations showdown which is sure add to the electric atmosphere on the day.
