Since 2011 – from duo to band: the Paddyhats


Breathtaking energy and traditional folk, wrapped in a modern punk garb, result in a unique band symbiosis that is transferred to the audience from the very first second: Irish Folk Punk. This seven-piece Band from Gevelsberg, Germany, has transported their love and joy for Irish music into the world since 2011. With their Irish folk punk, The O’Reillys and the Paddyhats deliver an extraordinary band sound that creates a perfect atmosphere everywhere. Whether club show or festival – a huge party is guaranteed. Their reach speaks for itself: Throughout Europe, the band brings their show to the stage in front of an enthusiastic audience!

From the garage band to the Wacken Open Air

Also at legendary festivals, such as the Wacken Open Air, the band has already proven this several times. Over 140 million views on YouTube, over 50 million music streams and several album chart placements pave the band’s promising path to the upcoming shows in 2024!
