Love Sensation promoter and founder of Mother, Cormac Cashman said:
"Love Sensation feels like a natural progression for us.
"We’ve wanted to run a music festival for years, something that caters to our community and focuses on inclusivity, fun, good music, good times and sound people.
"We’ve been lucky enough to have amazing success with our Pride Block Party, now in its ninth year, so 2019 feels right for us to grow even bigger and launch our very own music festival!"
Tickets go on sale from 9am on Friday 29 March, with Super Early Bird prices kicking off at €96.25 including booking fees.
