Welcome to 2018!
The year we plan to party like never before on the Pleinmont headland.
The Chaos Crew are busy behind the scenes creating what will no doubt prove to be an epic weekend of bikes, bands and beer (wine is also available in the Peace tent). Hell yeah!!!
For those that know and love it, Chaos remains true to its formula. Great times with great people, cold beers and an amazing lineup of music; from metal to rock to blues to ska to psytrance to punk to folk, there’s music for every taste and mood.
Once you have your ticket, camping is free, the beer is plentiful and cheap, and the good times roll. As well as a great selection of music of all genres and bikes of all shapes and sizes, Chaos will be challenging you to a Keg Lift, a burn out competition, the tattoo competition and of course we now introduce young bands in the Battle of the Bands.
Following an exciting upcoming year supporting the Rumjacks, playing on the Flogging Molly Salty Dog Cruise and generally raising Psycho Ceilidh hell wherever they go, Neck are invading Chaos 14! There is so much to say about this great band and their musical heritage, but they say it better than we can so check them out at neck.ie.
Making their Chaos Debut is crowd favourite The Surfin Birds
A great mix of Stoner Psych, Garage and Surf music with a healthy dose of blues, we are stoked to finally have Surfing Birds onstage at Chaos! artistecard.com/thesurfinbirds
And of course, our favourite and a Chaos favourite, [spunge] are finally returning again to Chaos!! We are excited the guys have found time in their touring to come back and join the party!
