Feile Classical - the live album is set for release on November 23

It was a weekend music fans had waited for with bated breath for the last 21 years, and now Feile afficiandos will get to do it all over again following the release of the Feile Classical Live album on November 23rd.

Recorded over two nights in Semple Stadium, Feile Classical - The Live Album, features performances from the cream of 90's Irish rock including the Hothouse Flowers, Something Happens, The Stunning and An Emotional Fish alongside the Irish Chamber Orchestra.

A bonus CD/ DVD format will also be released featuring a behind the scenes look at Féile 2018 as well as archival footage, out-takes from the iconic Féile TV, band interviews and footage of the original motley Féile gang of the 90s, Dustin the Turkey, Ray D’Arcy, Ian Dempsey and many more.

“Hand on heart: I was humbled to have been part of something so special, it was a remarkable two days," said Feile Classical MC Tom Dunne who performed a rousing set at the festival with his band mates Something Happens.

"People talk about ‘special events’ and ‘creating magic’, Féile Classical went beyond that, everyone involved gave it their all to create truly memorable performances. The connection with the audience was visceral, moving and real. It had the same energy as the early Féiles, people were too involved in the moment to want to watch it through their mobile phones. As one texter to my radio show said, I don’t want to move on from it, not yet, not for a while, that’s how I feel, and how the bands feel that way too.”
