On Europe Day, a group of visiting young Irish political representatives were invited by the embassy of Ireland in Berlin.

The festival was established in 2019 and has quickly become one of the most important events in the Irish music calendar. The festival showcases a wide range of traditional and folk music, including Irish traditional music, bluegrass, Americana, and more.

The festival is dedicated to promoting new and emerging talent in the Irish music scene, and has become a platform for many up-and-coming musicians to showcase their skills and connect with audiences from around the world.

The festival's main events are the concerts, which feature some of the best traditional and folk musicians from Ireland and around the world. The concerts are held in a variety of venues, from small intimate settings to larger concert halls, and feature a range of musical styles and genres.

In addition to the concerts, the festival also features a series of workshops and masterclasses. These events give attendees the opportunity to learn from some of the most talented musicians in the Irish music scene, and to develop their own skills and techniques.

The workshops and masterclasses cover a wide range of topics, from traditional Irish fiddle playing to songwriting and composition. These events are designed for musicians of all levels, from beginners to professionals, and provide a unique opportunity to learn from some of the best in the business.
