Body & Soul Festival
Body & Soul is a magical festival set in the fields and woods of Ballinlough Castle, Co Westmeath. The promoters always have a left-of-centre line-up and this year Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and Public Image Ltd will headline; James Murphy will play a DJ set and Nicolas Jaar will perform live.

But what makes the event so special is the attention to detail across the festival - think four-poster picnics, poetry reading in giant birds' nests, disco yurts, woodland hot tubs and lantern-lit pathways. The woods and gardens have pop-up restaurants, spoken word events, performance art, theatrics and a 'soul kids' area for families. The festival falls on the Summer Solstice and the organisers say that Body & Soul "will celebrate ago-old traditions in its own modern way". It's certainly the closest I've seen to Burning Man this side of the Atlantic.

Body & Soul takes place from June 21 to 23. A three-day camping tickets is €139. A day ticket for the Sunday is €55. Visit: www.bodyandsoul.ie.

Westport Festival
The Westport Festival of Music and Food is a two-day, family-friendly festival set in the stunning 400-acre site of Westport House. Over 60 artists will perform across five stages on Saturday June 29 and Sunday June 30. Headlining acts include Christy Moore with Declan Sinnott, Elvis Costello & the Imposters, The Waterboys, Le Galaxie and Imelda May.

The food village will host a series of culinary demonstrations from well-known chefs such as Derry Clarke, Kevin Dundon, Oliver Dunne and Dylan McGrath. Kids under 12 are welcome to the festival free of charge and they can enjoy the bouncing castle, peddle boats and the children's theatre.

Camping is distinctly different from other Irish festivals as Westport House has an established campsite with hot water showers, real toilets and even WiFi.

Tickets are on sale at: www.westportfestival.com and camping tickets at: www.westporthouse.ie. An adult day ticket is €75 and an adult weekend ticket €130.
