Spraoi is delighted to make the initial line-up announcements for this year’s highly anticipated festival. The website is now freshly stocked with a list of names and teaser descriptions of the many thrilling and exuberant performances that are due to travel from all over the world to come together and entertain the people of Waterford for an August Bank Holiday Weekend to remember.

With artists performing a wide range of impressive performance styles, there’ll be something to catch every eye for those planning to attend. Festivalgoers can expect to be entranced by spectacular acrobatic and juggling skills in WILD, Square Two, and Wel (come), to be giggling and chuckling at the comedy stylings in Messrs Smiley & Veneer and OFF, and to be outright amazed by some more unusual shows like REC.ON(struction). The headline act brings a mechanical musical siren feat of engineering and artistry in Mécanique Vivante, and this year’s festival also brings with it the new and exciting venture of The Four Nations Bursary Project, showcasing 6 emerging talents on one stop of their tour of Ireland and the UK.
