We’re celebrating 40 years of rock‘n’roll at Slane Castle this weekend and we want YOU to celebrate with us. Restrictions mean we can’t have a big public event (as we’d love to) but no matter where you are in the country, you can join in through the radio. We’re really excited to announce that Today FM are broadcasting LIVE from Slane Castle on Monday to commemorate the actual anniversary.

Here are a few shows who are celebrating 40 years of Slane Castle concerts in style:
