Festivals and Participative Events Programme
Our scheme offers financial foundations for the thriving festivals industry:
400,000 overseas visitors attended festivals in Ireland in 2010
40% of adults in Ireland attend festivals, with 72% of these spending on accommodation
More than 2 million bednights are generated by festivals, from the domestic market alone
€448 million was generated by festivals in Ireland in 2010, with €300 million of this originating from domestic and overseas visitors who travelled specifically to attend a festival
You can apply for funding for a festival under either the regional or national sections of the programme.
