K-Fest Music and the Arts promotes culture in all its forms, nurturing the growth of music and the arts through live music, film, spoken word, children’s workshops and street entertainment. Using the derelict and idle buildings in Killorglin as art, K-Fest provides a backdrop for emerging artists to become curators of their own work and engage with an audience who are new to the concept of artistic interpretation. The connection that artists and the viewing public make with one another when art is presented in this fashion has been key to the success of the festival. The musical acts which perform during the festival are carefully chosen to afford the audience a chance to experience acts that would not otherwise be readily accessible in Killorglin. K-fest strives to broaden the musical horizons of locals and visitors alike. Film, poetry, drama, rambling houses, debates, street entertainment, busking and family events are all incorporated within the festival line-up. K-fest has grown steadily since 2013 to become a major tourist attraction for visitors from outside Kerry and abroad and is now associated with cultural innovation, artistic exploration and excellence.
