As local media sponsor of the Old Fort Quarter Festival 2018, the Leinster Express is proud to announce the first headline music act of the weekend.

Thousands of people will flock to Main Street, Portlaoise for the Old Fort Quarter Festival this June 22, 23 and 24.

Due to popular demand, a firm favourite of the festival, 90’s tribute band Smash Hits will be making a welcome return to headline the Sunday night of the festival, June 24.

Many festival fans will be happy with the announcement as Smash Hits were one of the highlights of the weekend last year. All of the events of the weekend are completely free to attend.

They will take to the stage at the bottom of Main Street on the Sunday night until late and will be followed by a DJ. 

The Leinster Express will exclusively announce more acts this Monday, May 21 when the festival will be officially launched so keep an eye on our website and social media. Pick up a copy of the Leinster Express newspaper on Tuesday for all of the information on this year's festival. 

The Old Fort Quarter Festival is funded by Leader, Laois County Council, the Department of Rural and Community Development, Laois Local Community Development Committee, Laois Partnership and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
