Sligo Live is delighted to announce Gilbert O’Sullivan will headline the Festival’s Saturday night, 28th October 2017 in the Knocknarea Arena at 8.30 pm. This will be the Waterford-born legend’s first ever Sligo appearance.

Festival co-producer, Rory O’Connor said “He is in the middle of his tour celebrating a 50 year career, selling out venues all over and his Sligo date is his first Irish performance following his performance for BBC Radio 2 Proms in the Park on Saturday 9th September at Hyde Park with a crowd of over 50,000 people. He is bringing a big backing band with him to Sligo with full instrumentation and backing singers. Gilbert has a reputation as a wonderful performer and is sure to play a crowd–pleasing show.”
