Wexford Americana folk band 'Corner Boy' will headline this year's Shedfest in Buffers Alley on Saturday, July 11.

The Shedfest is fast becoming Wexford's largest indoor music festival, and this year's event will feature two stages.

Other acts on the bill include: an eight-piece funk soul disco band, the Cosmic Funk Band from Cork with a set that goes from the 60s to Pharrell Williams; 5 Dollar Shakes from Gorey; and local musician Robbie Breen.

Along with the live music, there's also a DJ till late, a tasty barbecue, a late bar, and an all night taxi rank.

Mick Stamp Taxi and buses will be operating this and will be running a taxi service to and from the Shedfest.

Tickets for all this are €20 and, if you buy a ticket before July 11, you will be entitled to a complimentary drink before 11 p.m. on the night.

If you buy ten tickets before July 1, you will get one free.

Tickets are now on sale from all club members.
