Join us for ITAV2020 at Trabolgan Holiday Village.
A unique and fun-filled weekend on the stunning south coast of Ireland. Say good bye to tents, wellies and fields of mud. Now you can drive door to door, and when you're here you're only a two minute walk from any of the venues.

It Takes A Village has changed the concept of an Irish festival. It’s put a roof over its head, made its bed and popped the kettle on!

WHO WANTS A TENT?
WHEN YOU CAN HAVE A HOUSE.

Ditch the tents and leave the camping to the kids.
It Takes A Village is a weekend for the more discerning festival goer. If you’re looking for an unreal party with a bit more comfort and convenience then ITAV is the festival for you.


We have a selection of houses to chose from, and every house comes with all the mod cons like a proper kitchen, tv, internet, fresh linen, hot showers and baths if you’re very lucky. Drive door to door and bring everything you need for the weekend with you. Or leave it all behind and get what you need in the onsite offie and shops!

It Takes A Village Festival 2020 Statement

It Takes A Village was due to take place this coming May 8th-10th 2020.

Unfortunately due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19 we are forced to postpone this year’s festival and reschedule for May 2021. As none of us know how long this pandemic will continue on for we felt it was prudent to make this call now. We were really looking forward to this year’s festival so we are hoping most of the acts both Irish and international will join us again in 2021. The feedback from all acts is very positive about joining us next year. They are in the same boat as us, caught in the doldrums in this sea of uncertainty. We are all in this together.

We had hoped that the situation in Ireland and around the world would have improved by the beginning of May but as we all know there is no clarity on this. In these uncertain times we feel that many acts might not want to or be able to travel from the U.S, U.K or Europe. Irish acts also might have issues with social proximity. Our loyal villagers and new found friends that were due to join us on this third instalment of It Takes A Village might not feel comfortable socialising for many months to come.

Having made the decision to postpone we now look forward with positivity 2021.
The new date for It Takes A Village is:

May 7th – 9th 2021

Trabolgan Holiday Village, Cork

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by the postponement but sadly this one is out of our hands and in the lap of the Gods. 

This is tough for us. We’re a small independent festival and this has hit us hard obviously. To say we are disappointed is an understatement. But as mentioned above we are approaching this with positivity.

We now have an extra year to make the third instalment of ITAV the best it has been. We had some great new plans for 2020, we will now build on these for 2021 and promise to come back even stronger than before.

Over the past two festivals we’ve built a lovely little community and many of you have been with us from the beginning. We’re really hoping that you’ll hang tough and stay with us for next year too. For all of you that have already booked your tickets we have a couple of options:

Option 1.  Stay with us for 2021. Your tickets and any payments can be transferred over to next year. We’ll create a new payment schedule and nothing more will need to be paid until 2021. We will make all tickets booked for this year ‘flexi tickets’ so you can increase or decrease the number of people on your booking up to December 31st 2020. For anyone who booked their tickets at Tier 1 or Tier 2 prices this year would like to offer you the Early Bird ticket price of €209 per person so you will get a refund of the difference if you have paid the full amount already. We think this is only fair as everyone is now an early bird for 2021. To all of those who wish to keep the deposit they already paid as a rollover for ITAV 2021. We are aware that this change will affect tickets holders as individuals, and that tickets for this festival are bought as households and groups. With this in mind we will offer the rollover ticket option until August 31st 2020, giving everyone time to get their ‘house in order’. The option for a full refund will be available until this point as well.

Option 2. 

Get a full refund and cancel your booking for 2021. We understand that there are certain groups and international travellers who just won’t be able to make it next year and that’s completely understandable. To receive your refund please email info@ittakesavillage.fm before August 31st 2020 and we will cancel your order and refund your tickets.

We would like to thank all of our staff, and the staff at Trabolgan for their work and support in this unprecedented time.
