Ahead of RTÉ Radio 1's coverage of the Killarney Festival of Music & Food on June 27 and 28, presenters Kathryn Thomas and Cathal Murray have been transformed for a new promo video - watch it here.

On Saturday June 27 and Sunday June 28 from 2pm to 7pm, RTÉ Radio 1 will welcome guests such as Burt Bacharach, Jools Holland, Duran Duran and Father John Misty to its acoustic tent at the festival, with Irish acts including Wallis Bird, Mongoose, The Young Folk and Mick Flannery also set to visit. 

Thomas will open the tent at 2:00pm on Saturday June 27 and she and Murray will present A Night in the Forest from the festival between 9:00pm and 11:00pm on the Saturday and Sunday. 

Tom McGuire, Head of RTÉ Radio 1, said: "Radio 1 is inviting festival-goers to join us to experience special moments unlike any other.

"Our woodland tent will feature curated events from the Woodland Céilí to a celebration of the music of Joni Mitchell and Laurel Canyon.  

"Comedy star Oliver Callan will perform exclusively, we'll chat to iconic American folk-rock purveyor Father John Misty of Fleet Foxes fame, and there'll be a tribute to Burt Bacharach's legendary songbook.

"Radio 1 is a constant presence around the country, and we plan to make a big statement in the Kingdom this summer."
