Come join us on Sherkin Island this August 22nd/23rd to experience a festival with a difference. Sherkin Responsibilities, in its second year, is a very new and independent festival having headlined mature and musically evolved bands in the past like Kíla and The Pale.
This year we are doing a smaller event out the back of the only bar on the island, the Jolly Roger. Vagabonds & Thieves, Ramu Manu (some members of King Modo), Quangodelic, Ian Date Jazz Quartet, Singer-Songwriters: David Carroll, Appo, Mide Houlihan and DJs Ian Fiasco, JusMe & Gary Fitz of Hobo Convention & Gary Baus! More to confirm in the coming weeks! Why not converge those two things we all love, great music and the beauty of nature.
We invite you to join in the 'craic agus ceol' and 'go sherkin your responsibilities' on this sensuous island in the wilds of West Cork. Camping is not included in the ticket price. Toilet facilities are available. Ferry is not included in the ticket price but costs only 10 Euro return.
Tickets vary in price, depending on how many you want to buy. There are limited rewards for each one, so get your tickets fast. It will start on Saturday 22nd August at 2pm ish until 1am and I hope to have a DJ and some musicians perform on Sunday 23rd August, from 1 or 2pm.
Tickets are non-refundable.
Please remember that cars are not allowed on the Island.
This Fund it campaign is to help cover event costs such as insurance, the stage, marquees perhaps, sound and lighting equipment, porta-loos, the ferry costs, transport of heavy goods, generators, security, bands, DJs, videographers, travel and other production costs, the sound engineers, promotional packaging such as t-shirts, flyers and the tickets themselves, their design and printing production plus a lot, lot more.
Other advice about coming to Sherkin Island and the festival:
The festival was a complete success in 2013, however, I had to cancel it last year due to lack of ticket sales and thus funds. If I am successful this year in reaching my target, I will e-mail you with detailed information about ticket collection and more.
Food and beverages will be available. More details to follow.
I also recommend those camping to do a smart shop in advance in Skibbereen, there is a LIDL on the road to Baltimore. Buy ideal foods for camping such as fruit, crackers, salad things, biscuits, water and other beverages. WATER is very important.
Further Accommodation is available at the:

There is a recycling station on the Island, please don't litter but dispose of it in one of the available bins supplied. There is no ATM on Sherkin Island and it is better to go to one in Skibbereen, in case the one in Baltimore is broken.
Thanks very much for taking the time to check out this campaign,
