Wicklow’s Kaleidoscope Festival has added even more acts to their line-up, just six weeks before the event.
Joining an already jam-packed line-up is The Divine Comedy who will bring their eclectic sounds to the main stage on Sunday night. And wouldn’t be Kaleidoscope without showman extraordinaire – the inimitable Jerry Fish who will be bringing his Electric Sideshow to the festival again this year.
Jerry Fish now holds the important position of Ringmaster of the whole festival, and will make the main stage his home for the weekend – hosting, performing and welcoming special guests onstage.
But that’s not all, expect Jerry Fish’s particular brand of colour, creativity and utter mayhem to pop up all over the festival site! On the mainstage Jerry will host his friends Frank & Walters, San Patricio Mariachi Band, and will of course be performing himself with The Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow Band.

There will also be a collaboration between poet Stephen James Smith and illustrator Steve Simpson, and carnival sideshow shenanigans and circus workshops from Foxy P Cox, Wobbly Circus, Fierce Family Fire Show, Time Travel Theatre, Stumbles the Clown and many more.
