This is the 11th year of An Puball Gaeilge at Electric Picnic!

Many groups have come on board since and taken part in the Puball over the years, including Kíla, Seo Linn, Aindrias de Staic, Polca 4, The Bonny Men and many more besides. An Puball Gaeilge is supported by Foras na Gaeilge and Glór na nGael.
