The Rally Of Lúgh Longarm - Join us in celebrating 2 days of the best in metal and blues.

The festival will see a total of 14 bands perform, doors opening each day at 3pm with International acts as well as established bands from the four corners of the country.

The line-up has been well received by the music industry and critics with a great mixture of blues, metal and classic rock on the bill.

We have Classic Rock to raise fists in the air. The legend that is Motorhead’s Phil Campbell and his new band, the UK’s melodic rock gods (ex-Thin Lizzy Darren Wharton’s band) DARE, Samarkind just back from their successful UK tour as are Boneyard Dog whose ranks include ex-members of Rainbow, Foreigner and Whitesnake. 

For lovers of Blues we have England’s award winning Chantel McGregor as well as the Blues Professor Pat McManus. From the band that started the dual lead guitar, we have Martin Turner ex-Wishbone Ash (who inspired both Iron Maiden and Thin Lizzy) and they will play all the classics from an amazing back catalogue.

The Metalheads are covered with the first performance ever on Irish soil of Thrash legends Coroner. From the US, bringing their energetic live set, is fans favourite Slough Feg. There is rare live showings and always treats from Darkest Era and Old Season and The pioneers of Celtic Metal, Waylander, will be a highlight. Celtachor with a fantastic new album and the doom musings of Death The Leveller are also on the 'not to be missed' list.

Given this is the only Celtic-flavoured festival delivering international acts as well as the best in Ireland, the promoters hope in time it will rival similar festivals in the UK and Europe and continue attracting the world‘s leading artists.

Irish mythology – fascinating and dramatic. Full of war, romance, magic and mystery. It has inspired much of modern Irish art and forms a big part of the Irish identity. The cradle of Irish mythology sits in the the Boyne Valley. The legends begin between Cú Chulainn’s Cooley Mountains and Fionn MacCumhaill’s river Boyne. This is the land of the Celtic God Lúgh. The perfect music to showcase this realm must be the mix of Metal and Blues. Come join us on the weekend 28th-29th July 2018 as we forge new friendships and keep the spirit of real music alive.

R.O.L.L. 2018 - Our ethos is to bring the best in Metal and Blues bands from across the World but also to promote our inspiring heritage and incredible Irish rock talent. The Irish rock scene is coming into a golden era and we will fly the flag proudly supporting new artists whilst paying respect and admiration to the pioneers who have mastered their craft. 

The Academy in Dublin is the perfect venue to showcase this festival and we hope that you share a weekend of metal and friendship as we strive to keep alive the furnace of live music
