Country and folk fans across the county are rejoicing as Steve Earle has just been announced as the headline act for this year's Wexford Spiegeltent Festival.

The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, who shot to fame with the 1986 album 'Guitar Town', will play the festival with The Dukes on October 24. Audiences can expect songs from their new album 'Terraplane', along with many old favourites. Tickets go on sale on Friday July 17 and are expected to sell out fast.

Another highlight of the festival will be a screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show on October 16. Widely considered to be one of the greatest cult movies of all time, The Rocky Horror Picture Show marks its 40th anniversary this year. In honour of this, a special screening will be shown, complete with full shadow cast and obligatory audience participation.

Many other big names will perform at Spiegeltent, including Jack L, BellX1 and Dylan Moran. The festival will run for 12 days, from October 22 to November 2 with over 40 events to choose from.
