Kaleidoscope Festival which takes place in Wicklow in June has reopened its family ticket allocation after there was huge uptake of its initial offering.

The festival which runs between June 28 and 30 features a host of top acts including Limerick favourites Hermitage Green.

The first release of the introductory priced family tickets (two adults and two children under 18), costing only €155.24, were snapped up within minutes when they went on sale three weeks ago.

Organisers have now announced they are releasing a limited number of additional three day family camping tickets.

“Listening to festival fans’ feedback, we realised there was a really strong demand for a specially priced family weekend ticket so we are delighted to be able to deliver on this,” said a spokesperson.
