Making waves as they sell out venues across Ireland and the UK – indie-rock five-piece Basht. make their Carlow debut, headlining the O’Hara’s Big Top at Carlow Arts Festival 2024.

Made up of Dublin locals Jack Leavey, Louis Christie, Sam Duffy, Rossa Healy and Luke O’Neill, the band will play tracks from the critically acclaimed new EP, Dirty White Lies, as well as fan favourite singles including Never Love.

The band have featured on Spotify's Hot New Bands and Tracy Clifford's Track of the Week on 2FM, and are garnering rave reviews for their invigorating live shows.

Their Carlow Arts Festival gig promises to be a chance to see an excellent new Irish band who are already on a meteoric rise to stardom.

Basht. is included in the 2024 Music Pass. The Music Pass grants access to all events inside the O'Hara's Big Top, including Basht. and Carlow Live & Local. The 2024 Music Pass goes on sale 25 April 2024.
