2019.K-FEST, a dynamic arts festival with an emphasis on emerging artists, uses unoccupied spaces in Killorglin, Co. Kerry, transforming vacant retail outlets, deserted buildings, and even domestic homes into curated bespoke pop-up galleries and venues. Over the course of the June Bank Holiday weekend, K-FEST hosts more than 60 events in addition to a gallery trail, including live music performances by dozens of bands and musicians, as well as spoken word, drama, comedy, short films, street entertainment, and activities for kids and families, all culminating with the Screaming Pope Prize ceremony, in which the festival awards a single outstanding work of visual art. Since 2013, K-FEST has housed over 600 visual artists and approximately 3,000 original works of art, covering paint, print, sculpture, performance, textiles, fashion, graphic design, photography, film, and audio-visual. The K-FEST name is associated with cultural innovation and artistic exploration and for showcasing fun, eclectic, and thought-provoking events while setting and maintaining high production standards across all its programmes. #iamkfest#kfest2k19
