Ireland says ‘YES’ as Ulyssess celebrations set for Derry and Donegal

Ireland’s first all-female festival will take place at various locations across the north west this summer.

YES, Ireland’s first all-female festival, is coming to Derry and Donegal this summer. This unique event will take place at various locations across the Northwest of Ireland, showcasing the incredible talent of female artists and performers from across Europe.

Running from 13th – 16th June, the four-day festival will feature over 40 events and more than 30 female artists from the nations involved in the ULYSSES European Odyssey project. These artists will join their Irish and British counterparts in a diverse range of events, including dance, music, film, art, literature, street arts, and more.

The YES festival marks the first time that ‘Bloomsday’, the celebrations centred around James Joyce’s Ulysses, will extend beyond Dublin.
