Their high-energy DJ/MC show has drawn rave reviews from such publications as Rolling Stone, Billboard and more.

Not only that but guess who else shall be attending Sea Sessions 2012?
We have the honour of announcing that the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, will be arriving on Saturday June 30th to give a speech, and to tour the festival site. He will hopefully be presenting the awards to the Barefoot Expression Session Surfers if the surf contest has run before his arrival. The nature of surfing is very much dependent on the elements and the competition will run when the waves are best on any of the tree days of the festival. We wonder if Michael D. will be up for a surf lesson?
