Fancy yourself as a designer ? 
Le Cheile T-shirt

The 2016 T Shirt
Designed by David Graham

As the name suggests, Le Cheile is and always has been about working together to bring a major music and arts event to Oldcastle. This year we'd like to widen the net to bring even more of you in on the act.
Every year Le Cheile produces a commemorative festival t-shirt that enables music fans to show their support for the festival and to show the world that "I was there". Throughout the festival weekend... and over the following months and years you'll see dozens of people wearing their Le Cheile festival t-shirts around Oldcastle. (We know of at least one person that has a t-shirt from every single Le Cheile festival going all the way back to 1998)
And since Le Cheile is all about doing this "together", we'd like to offer you the chance to be this years festival t-shirt designer.
If your design is chosen you'll get:
  • Two weekend passes granting you access to all Le Cheile events over the festival weekend.
  • Some major bragging rights :-) and the pleasure of seeing your design plastered across the chests of festival goers all over the festival weekend.
  • ...and obviously a copy of your finished design printed on the 2017 Le Cheile Festival T-shirt (one for you and one for a friend)

What you should consider when creating your design


  • Designs may be submitted as either a full colour picture or as a two colour silhouette type picture (or both).
  • Your design is more likely to be chosen as the winner if it works as both a full colour picture AND as a two colour silhouette (i.e. all black design on a white background)
  • There are three things that appear on every Le Cheile t-shirt. The name of the festival including the Le Cheile logo (in the familiar Le Cheile font), the Le Cheile “man” and the year of the festival – If these are not included in your design they will be added by us before printing.
  • The placement of your design will be on the front of the Le Cheile festival t-shirt. (The back design will list all of the music acts that play at Le Cheile 2017)
  • Your design may be drawn by hand or using a computer. 
  • You can enter as many designs as you like.
  • The components of your design should come from your head... not from the internet ! :-)
