Soundwaves 2016

Mark your diaries, invite your friends and family from further afield… The 2016 Skerries Soundwaves Festival will take place from Thursday September 22nd to Sunday 25th September.  Gig at the Mills, Soundwaves Minecraft, Classical Concert in Holmpatrick, Festival Street Party, Night Parade… We’re hoping to squeeze all your favourites, and more, into four fun-filled days.

Welcoming our new chair, Niamh Q.

This year see’s a new chairperson on board: Niamh Quigley. Welcome to the helm!

Niamh says:  “I was drawn into Soundwaves by Ernestine in 2009, her energy and enthusiasm is infectious. It is a mad busy festival and each year new people come on board so we are always coming up with new ideas for events. This year promises to be bigger than ever with a few twists. As always the support from the people of Skerries is fantastic.”

With Niamh in charge, we can look forward to a great festival for 2016!

Below you can see Niamh (in yellow Soundwaves T-Shirts) our most recent chair, Gráinne Enright & Ernestine Woelger, without whom we would not have Soundwaves now. Thank you for all your hard work, ladies!

What a festival we had 2015! Here are the events that were on our programme this year. Where there are links, we already have pictures up. Where there aren’t, we hope to have them up within the next week.

Thank you for your support, everybody! It’s one of the many things that make our town such a great place to live in (and to visit).
