The event will see out the back of the Buncrana venue transformed for one weekend only, with a very limited number of tickets available.

Rory Kelly of MRK Events said: “This summer in Donegal, there is an amazing line-up of music festivals.

“We are delighted with how OTB is shaping up, and having sold-out the festival last year, we are looking forward to a bigger spectacle this year.

“The acts we have secured for the festival are some of the most promising names in Irish music with most being included in Electric Picnic and Sea Sessions line-ups.

“Like every year, we have a couple of surprises planned as well.”

Fiachra O’Flaherty of O’Flaherty’s Bar added: “Anyone that has been at OTB knows what the experience is all about.

“We are four years in, and want to be going for forty more, so we are working to make sure the experience gets better and better for attendees - old and new.
