Summer is the season of festivals, with so much competition out there organisers need to begin looking for acts that are off the beaten track to make their event stand out. We’ve compiled a list of our top five favourite unique and alternative festival entertainment ideas.

1. With ‘Get Lucky’ the song of the summer and Random Access Memories rocketing to the top of the charts around the world, the band of the moment  are themselves not touring but Daft Punk Tribute are every bit as good as the real thing. With custom built helmets and costumes, an LED light show, plus the talent of French duo crowds throughout Europe are going wild for Daft Punk Tribute.

2. Silent Discos are always a hit at any festival; headphones with two channels and two DJs battling it out. Crowds then have the option of listening to the channel of their choice; a song not to your taste? No problem you can just switch over.

3. Who doesn’t love Star Wars? Star Troopers are based on the iconic Storm Troopers, foot soldiers of the Galactic Empire. Wherever these guys go a crowd follows, if you want them to walk around the site posing for photos that’s fine or if you want something really different why not have a Star Trooper DJ set?

4. Ireland is known for its vibrant music scene, and there is a plethora of new talent out there who are hotly tipped to be the next big things. We have a wide selection of new talent to suit all musical tastes from electro pop to acoustic and everything in between. Who knows, you may be able to say you booked the next U2. This is not only perfect for festivals but also for unique wedding entertainment, looking great along one of the many brilliant wedding bands Ireland.

5. Torann Drummers are without doubt one of the best and most unique percussion acts in Ireland at the moment. Having played though out Europe over the past decade, the Waterford act have been invited to perform at the infamous Glastonbury Festival this summer. If you’re looking for something to get your audience on their feet, dancing and smiling then Torann are the perfect act for your festival.
