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

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.
