Donegal-based Sea Sessions festival confirm legendary group for 2017

Donegal-based Sea Sessions festival confirm legendary group for 2017

The legendary Primal Scream, well known for their seminal album “Screamadelica” and hits such as “Rocks’ and “Movin’ on Up” are the first act announced for Sea Sessions 2017 coinciding with the announcement of their Early Bird Tickets. Strictly Limited Early Bird tickets go on sale this Friday 11 November at 9.00am.

Now heading into it’s tenth year Sea Sessions has really grown in popularity over the last few years and now sells out weeks in advance. It’s situated right on the beach in Bundoran and has played host to such international acts as Tinie Tempah, Paul Weller, Bastille and Seasick Steve to name but a few. Alongside music, there’s Ireland's biggest Surf Event, Skating, BMX, Beach Sports and much more packed into the 3 full days of partying by the beach.

Ray O’Donoghue Festival director says “We were gutted when Primal Scream pulled out last year due to Bobby breaking a bone in his back so we’re absolutely thrilled that they’ve agreed to come back in 2017. They’re one of our favourite Rock ’n’ Roll bands of all time. We’ve a few more big ones up our sleeves for 2017 too."

The festival runs in Bundoran from Friday 23 June - Sunday 25 June, 2017.
