The goal of Limerick SummerFest is to create a platform for everybody in Ireland, irrespective of their ethnicity, gender, race, or belief system to get involved in a socially beneficial event and to also promote Irish music, arts, and culture.

The festival is also in support of Pieta, as mental health is an issue that needs to be raised more within the arts. Donation will be made to support the services of the organisation.

The event will be live on Eventbrite from 24th January 2022 with tickets ranging from 50 euros to 70 euros per person.

We encourage those both within and outside limerick to take part in the event and also volunteer. We believe that in volunteering for this event, we would be able to promote inclusion and participation of Limerick residents. 

Speaking about the event, Segun Samuel, Founder and Director of communications at Limerick SummerFest said “We are more than excited to finally be able to host a music and arts festival in limerick.

“There has been a lot of planning and work into this event, and we intend to use this medium to engage with diverse communities all across Limerick and Ireland. Limerick is a diverse city, with thousands of international students and migrants coming in every year to either study or start a new life, and with this event, we intend to make Limerick a centre of excellence and also add value to the city life.

“We want people to visit Limerick city more and see what we do here. Limerick Summerfest highlights a fresh, fun, diverse, accessible, and exciting way to engage with the city of limerick, and show that there is always more to Limerick. Diversity is one of our main key pillars.

“We feel this event is important for Limerick audiences to have access to and engage with. This festival is a perfect space to enable artists to come together as one voice in Limerick city.

“Its been a tough two years leading to this time, and this event is an opening to regain social sanity, which is why we have also decided to use this as a medium to raise awareness about mental health issues. Segun said. 

Anthony Onaloye, founder of Afropopcity also said “We are so thrilled to be partners in the Limerick Summerfest. As this would be a yearly festival, it will serve as an avenue to generate revenue for the creative industry and be a driving force for the arts in Limerick.

“As we are also supporting Pieta, we aim to promote awareness for suicide and depression in and outside Limerick and create an inclusive environment for the cultural diverse in Limerick and Ireland.” Anthony added.
