Commenting on the line-up announcement, Robert Hyland, Sponsorship Manager, Vodafone Ireland, said:

“Last year’s Vodafone Comedy Tent was a great success and we’re really excited about this year’s line-up. This year Vodafone is challenging all festival goers to ‘Go Full Festival’ and we’re looking at new ways to help them fully immerse themselves in the festival experience, not only at the festival itself but also through Centre Stage online.”

Avril Stanley, Director, Body&Soul added:

“We’re delighted to once again work with Vodafone on presenting a brilliant line-up of Irish and international comedy talent at Body&Soul.
