As festival announcement season is in full flow, Sea Sessions’ line up is already into it’s second stage of acts.  But the popular music and surf festival is adding in a twist this year, with the arrival of their Craft Beer Experience.

Those currently confirmed for the surf and music festival are:

Kelis / The Dandy Warhols / The Strypes / Ella Eyre / Flight Facilities / Erol Alkan / Drenge / The Dub Pistols / DJ Yoda / Walking On Cars  / The Minutes / Hudson Taylor / Raglans and many more.

This is the festival’s first time hosting a Craft Beer Experience with O’Hara’s Craft Beers even helping the festival to come up with their own Sea Sessions Pale Ale for the event.

“We are delighted to be pouring at one of the most successful music festivals in the North West, Sea Sessions, and look forward to showcasing some new beers from The Donegal Brewing Company at the festival” said Brendan O’Reilly of The Donegal Brewing Company.

As ever the Sea Sessions Surf Event will be the highlight of the Irish surfing calendar with the biggest cash prize in Irish surfing on offer and surfers from around the world flying in to take part.

The Beach Olympics at the festival hosted by Barefoot wines will see volleyball, tag rugby and beach soccer events and a few new additions for the 2014 line up.
