Halfway through the day of Castlefest and it’s already awesome!

We had SeeD Pagan Folk , PerKelt and a Q&A with Rapalje Celtic Folk Music !!

Herewith some pictures of that!!!



Good morning!

Today is the day!!! Today we kick off Castlefest 2018 – Official !!! While Alex is already onsite, the rest of the team is packing their stuff and getting ready for the trip to Kasteel Keukenhof .

As said in the interview Alex did with Mark and Natasja last night for Castlefest TV, Castlefest will be bigger and longer than last year. A big example of that is that we are going to get a full extra day of Castlefest fun and music today!!

The first day of this beautiful event will bring us, SeeD Pagan Folk , PerKelt , Rapalje Celtic Folk Music and Coppelius . But also we will bring you some from the Castlefest Academy and more!!

Keep an eye on our social media channels, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and maybe even Youtube!

See you all there!!

Good morning 1

We won’t bite (much) 😉

All of the sales people are sharing where they can be found using the new plan of Castlefest. So we thought we would do the same.

You’ll be able to see our team members covering the festival within the red circle. Feel free to come up to us and say hello, we won’t bite (much) 😉. For those staying at home, you can follow us as we run around in the red circle on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and maybe even on YouTube!!

MONTHLY MARKER TIME!

Tomorrow is the first of the month again, so it’s time to switch the Monthly Marker! And well, “switch it up” we did! 😀
Though maybe not completely fitting within the CeltCast formula you have come to know over the past years, The SIDH created such a party atmosphere at Keltfest , and we are very, very certain they will do the same at Castlefest 2018 – Official , that we really wanted to use their music as our Castlefest -linked Marker.

The song we chose to play throughout August is Khan, taken from their latest album ‘Another Way to Fly’, a high-energy, high-folk content dance-floor pounder which will most definitely get everyone’s blood pumping, whether that be while listening to it on CeltCast or experiencing the whole show at the Village Stage on Friday, the Meadow Stage on Saturday or the Forrest Stage on Sunday! Come join us and let’s dance and lose our minds together to the sounds of this hypnotising track!

Coppelius with their brilliant show of theatre, rock and folk

It’s been 2 years since Coppelius graced us with their brilliant show of theatre, rock and folk at Castlefest .
In 2016, when the organizers of Castlefest rightfully thought it would be awesome to have an extra evening of this blissful festival, they made it happen by having Coppelius as one of the opening acts. It’s save to say, it was a brilliant idea! Both that extra evening of Castlefest and having Coppelius on stage!

Now this crazy band with their own on-stage Butler will be returning to do another openings show at Castlefest and to top the awesomeness off completely one more show on the Friday evening! So, we get to see this incredible band twice!
