Yurt City is a music and arts festival curated by Boots & Kats. Yurt City will see the duo invite the best international DJs and producers to the People’s Castle this summer. You can expect Mongolian yurts throughout the site, spectacular art installations, performers, chill out areas and optional camping all within the stunning grounds of the castle.

Boots & Kats made their mark on the Dublin scene with their residency for Toast Dublin, one of Dublin’s most established collectives known for its consistent party vibes.

Over the past few years they have moved from strength to strength at an exponential rate. Headlining stages at almost every festival on the Irish circuit as well as playing abroad at the likes of Parklife, Snowbombing, and Hideout to name a few. More recently, they made their debut on Be-At-TV, who live-streamed their performance at Boxed Off Festival.

What’s most notable about Boots & Kats, is their innate ability to connect with any crowd and provide a feel-good atmosphere and energy regardless of wherever they find themselves playing. This, along with their charismatic nature and ace music selection, makes for the perfect party for anyone looking to dance the night away.


The Venue

The People’s Castle in Tullamore is one of the most unique festival venues in Ireland. The 17th century castle is hidden away in Ireland’s oldest primordial oak woods, acting as a spectacular backdrop.

Guests of Yurt City are invited to set foot inside a medieval courtyard and experience it transformed into a party like no other.
