A host of new acts and a new stage have been announced for the 2019 iteration of Tipp Classical.

Curator Tom Dunne and his team have added more acts and the new Jerry Fish Stage for 2019.

The Pale, Horslips, Kormac and The Blizzards have been added to the bill alongside previously announced acts which include Shane MacGowan with special guests, Sultans of Ping and The Stunning.

The South East is set to be well represented with Kilkenny cult-icons Engine Alley playing alongside Tipperary’s Crow Black Chicken, Bright Falls and Jester.


Harking back to Feile days, but with a mix of contemporary Irish artists performing with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, this 2-day festival, is a celebration of the best of Irish music back on Semple soil.

2018 saw the arrival of Feile Classical, two nostalgia-filled concerts of show-stopping performances to a sold-out crowd of 20,000.

Curator Tom Dunne said “We’ve listened and we’re delighted to announce Tipp Classical, a new expanded two-day festival with a line-up that’s a mix of classic 90s and contemporary artists, curated with the ICO’s tributes to some of Ireland’s biggest names in music.

“This year fans can choose on the night to take a seat in the stand or enjoy the gig from the pitch without having to storm security! I know Jerry Fish was delighted to have been the ring leader of such anarchy last year, he’ll have to come up with some new plans for mischief for his tent the Tipp Big Top and leave out a rebellion at the Main Stage this year.”
