Yurt City plans to return on August 14th and 15th in 2020 for two days, which is now obviously at the mercy of the Coronavirus pandemic which is currently sweeping the globe.
The festivals debut year went off with a bang, with acts like Dan Shake, Boots & Kats, Bellaire, DJ Boring, Cromby and Folamour to name a few. The high end production, the perfect location and list of the hottest names in house and disco got everyone eager to see what year two could offer us all.
Obviously right now the world is in the middle of a global pandemic, but the planning must continue in the hope that everything will be under control come August. Until it’s categorically not possible the dream is still alive.

We feel it’s important for us to provide a space that will prove helpful and healing for everyone once we are out the other side of this. As it stands Yurt City 2020 will proceed as planned on August 14th/15th 2020 at The Peoples Castle, Tullamore Co. Offaly.
This pandemic has forced us to re-examine what is truly important. Community and togetherness are top of that list. Now more ever we need to stay apart to come together. As the next week’s progress, please all stay strong and follow the official HSE/Government advice. We will get through this and come together for a collective celebration in August.
Big Love, The Yurt City Team x
