FEILE CLASSICAL: Feile fans to 'glamp in style' in luxury Yurts with strawberries and Prosecco on arrival

Silver Glampsite will feature luxury 'Yippee' tents, pictured

After working closely with Tipperary County Council and An Garda Siochana to provide an accommodation solution that will work for both the powers-that-be and the concert-goers, Feile Classical organisers are proud to unveil the Thurles Racecourse Eco-Glamping Village.

In a far cry from the Feile days of the 1990's, festival goers can 'glamp it up in style' in luxury Tipis, yurts or even a KarTent, made from 100 percent strong, recyclable cardboard.

The Feile eco-village site has a 'leave-no-trace' policy and all three 'glampsites' will feature pre-pitched tents manned by professional glamping companies.

Aside from luxury camping accommodation, music fans will have access to full amenities including clean toilets and shower facilities as well as the fantastic Tipperary Festival Foods Pop-Up which will supply amazing food options for happy glampers. 

The three tiers of Glamping accommodation goes a little something like this:

Site One: Gold Level Glamping in association with Hearthworks

Choose from three sizes of pre-pitched Tipis and three sizes of Yurts, catering from 2 to 9 people. The Gold Glampsite offers the highest level of luxury at the Glamping Village. This site is located closest to the Stadium and Car Park, with ease of access to the hot showers and the Tipperary Festival Foods Pop-Up serving mouth-watering breakfast, lunch and dinner. Each booking will receive Prosecco and Strawberries awaiting on arrival, and acoustic performances by surprise Féile Classical artists during the day!

Site Two: Silver Glampsite in association with Yippee Tents

Choose from pre-pitched standard and/or luxury Bell Tents, catering from 2 to 6 people. For those who like to put the glamorous in camping, the Silver Glampsite is luxurious, but a level down from the crème de la crème of the Gold experience. Silver Glampers have close access to the Stadium and Car Park, toilets and hot showers, along with the Tipperary Festival Foods Pop-Up, where they can enjoy some amazing fare before hitting the action of Thurles town.

Site Three: Bronze Glampsite in association with Pamper the Camper

Choose from a two person pre-pitched KarTent made from 100 percent strong, recyclable cardboard. Each KarTent caters for two people, sleeping bags and all belongings. The pre-pitched cardboard tent stays dark allowing you to have a well-earned rest.  Each KarTent is 100 percent waterproof, 100 percent sustainable and 100 percent guaranteed to offer a fun, hassle free weekend at Féile Classical. The Bronze site also has access to all amenities and car-park, including the Tipperary Festival Foods Pop-Up. For prices and bookings visit:
