The organisation’s operations are guided by strong held beliefs in DIY culture, grassroots connections and inclusivity within the arts. As Féile Na Gréine has grown, so has its creative output, which now include, filmmaking and publications, all of which embody fierce DIY approach.

His Father’s Voice
Limerick band His Father’s Voice deliver a brooding yet purposeful sound with soaring pop melodies, muscular rhythms, and immersive guitars. Building upon debut EP ‘Context and Perspective’ (2019) and single ‘In the Shade’ (2019), their upcoming debut album showcases a pummelling yet methodical approach.
Laura Duff is an artist from Limerick City. Duff introduced herself in 2019 with moody debut EP “For Your Company”, followed by sophomore, alt-pop effort “Heavy Summer” two years later. 2024 sees the Limerick native return to the scene, with a debut album slated for release later this year. Joined by friends JJ Lee (Bass), Chris O’Sullivan (Drums) and Mícheál Keating (Guitar), Duff’s hauntingly autobiographical tracks are given an extra breath of life.
The Low Field
The Low Field are a band based in Limerick, and formed in 2021 from members of Casavettes, Bleeding Heart Pigeons and Deadbog. Their sound takes influence from these previous projects as well as from bands further afield such as Sinai Vessel, Big Thief, and Land of Talk, with the band’s open lyricism and exploratory instrumental sections resonating well with audiences. Having won an agility award earlier this year, The Low Field are working on their debut release.
Combining a love of Suicide, Stereolab and Shoegaze, The PVP make a blur of psychadelia infused indie rock. Forming in 2021, the group (Brendan (Drums & Vocals), James (Keys), Chris (Guitar & Vocals) has been hammering away at their collection of drones and buzzes for the last few years. They have played with the likes of Pretty Happy, Trá Pháidín and Elaine Malone and featured in The Thin Air in Spring 2023. They have been working with engineer and friend Chris Ryan on their self titled record, due for release May 2024.
