The Irish Independent Music Festival is taking a break in 2017. With a year off the crew are focusing on various adventures and projects. “A Ten Year Story” Documentary Directed by Luke Sweetman of Little Beast Films, takes a brief but beautiful look at what the festival has meant to some of the faithful crew, old and new.
 
A few words from Documentary Director Luke Sweetman:
 
“KnockanStockan has been a part of my life on and off for 10 years, about 5 years ago we (Little Beast) went down and shot our first videos at KS. 
 
We do a lot of music related work including filming other festivals and KnockanStockan is unique. We all have some understanding of the pros and cons of large musical events; money is the goal and music is not always at the forefront.
 
The one thing that I can say with complete confidence is that the organisers and volunteers who make KnockanStockan happen to have a deep and passionate love of music, and I think this love is embraced and shared by the audience that attends.
 
With this mini doc, we wanted to show how the collective effort of a few hundred combine with the rambunctious partying of thousands to make a wild weekend of music and frolic. 
 
We can’t all like the same things but we can nearly all appreciate music’s capacity to get us closer to each other and ourselves.
 
In the words of a friend; peace, love and revolution.”

Fear not, even though KnockanStockan the festival will not be happening next year, the people involved will still be working hard to bring you music in all its forms, and the festival will be back in 2018 with bells on.
