About wild Atlantic Fleadh

A newcomer to the Irish Festival scene in the US, the Wild Atlantic Fleadh is a virtual festival that will debut on St Patrick’s Week 2021. Running from March 13th to 17th the Fleadh is a 5-day celebration of all things Celtic, spanning genres of music, dance and culture.

The month of March annually is Irish American heritage month in the U.S.  and the Fleadh’s goal is to celebrate a shared heritage by producing a world-class festival celebrating Ireland’s rich history of music, arts and culture. WAF will present shows and events by Irish, Scottish and American artists that have been affected by the current global pandemic and provide a unique opportunity to virtually present some of the very best performances whilst bringing performers and fans together in a safe online community.

Having secured a stellar lineup of acts for its inaugural event, many of which hail from the world of Public Television, the Wild Atlantic Fleadh has assembled an eclectic and entertaining range of performances. All performances are new, never before seen content and include internationally renowned shows, traditional Irish and folk musicians and up-and-coming artists. World champion Irish dancers, poets, comedians, painters, chefs, mixologists and storytellers round out the mix.

Musical performances at the festival run the gamut from top PBS shows such as Celtic Thunder to world acclaimed traditional musicians Cherish the Ladies, Celtic country heartthrob Nathan Carter, Riverdance tenor Michael Londra, folk duo Byrne and Kelly, Celtic Woman star Chloë Agnew to newcomer Emma Langford. All of these artists had their entire itinerary of shows for 2020 cancelled or postponed.

What Is The Wild Atlantic Fleadh?

Fleadh (pronounced “fla”) is a festival of Irish and Celtic music, dancing, and culture. The Wild Atlantic Way is one of the longest defined coastal routes in the world. It winds its way across the Irish west coast from the Inishowen Peninsula in the north to the picturesque town of Kinsale, County Cork, in the south. The route takes in wild landscapes, traditional culture, foot-tapping music sessions and off-the-boat-fresh seafood.

Festival Postponement

WAF Colour LogoWith a heavy heart we have had  to postpone the festival and filming in response to the current Covid numbers and transmission rates in Ireland, unfortunately it is the responsible and only choice right now.

We were always confident it was doable based on the knowledge we had at the time of announcement, however the current trajectory is a different playing field to anything prior. While we are very disappointed to have to push the Wild Atlantic Fleadh to next year, the health and safety of our performers and crew has to come first.

One positive outcome of moving the Fleadh to 2022 is that we can combine the planned online event with a live and in person event, which was always our long term goal.

The new date for the Wild Atlantic Fleadh in 2022 will be announced in due course. In the meantime anyone who purchased tickets to this year’s Fleadh will be refunded in full via their Stage It Account. Any concerns or questions regarding the status of their refund should be directed to

We will be in touch and we are so sorry this step had to be taken

Kind Regards

The Wild Atlantic Fleadh Team
