St Patricks Day is a national holiday over which the ‘owners’ of the festival, the Irish people, stand proud. It sets out to reflect the talents and achievements of Irish people on many national and world stages, and it acts as an exciting showcase for the manifold skills of the people of Ireland, of every age and social background.

Traditional Irish music is a full body experience: the upbeat tempos compel you to dance a jig, clap your hands and join in. And that's what traditional Irish music is all about, joining in and having the craic (fun).

Headliner helps you source and book great musicians, bands and DJs for your wedding, party or corporate event. Find and hire local St Patricks Day bands for your event.
