Sea Sessions returns for its seventh outing to Bundoran, Co Donegal, at the weekend. It’s as much about the surf than it is the music, but there’s plenty of stuff to interest all music fans as well. There are also lots of Irish acts who’ll be playing across three stages from June 21-23. The full lineup is below and then after the jump you’ll find my picks of the Irish acts you should catch at the weekend. You can buy tickets to Sea Sessions here.
