This is after they created the ‘song of the summer’.

Kabin Krew, the child rappers from Cork behind the now mega-viral single ‘The Spark’, are set to take to the stage at a big Irish music festival this summer.

According to RTÉ News, the group will perform a live show at Kaleidoscope, the Wicklow family music camping festival which will take place at the end of the month.

Kabin Krew’s appearance will be part of the event’s RTÉjr strand.

Since its release three weeks ago, ‘The Spark’ – made by the Kabin Krew in collaboration with the Lisdoonvarna Crew – has taken Ireland and the world by storm, amassing over 350 million views on social media.

It has also been hailed by huge international outlets like The New York Times as the “song of the summer”.

The track from the young Cork and Clare rappers was created to promote Cruinniú na nÓg, a day of creativity for Irish children taking place on 15 June.

Following its runaway success, ‘The Spark’ was released as an official single this week.

It also made further headlines recently after political party Fine Gael were forced to apologise after using the song in a promotional video without credit.

Kaleidoscope will take place at Russborough House in Blessington between Friday, 28 June and Sunday, 30 June.

As well as this, Kabin Krew will also make an appearance this Saturday (15 June) at the free music festival Rock the Block, which is taking place in Cork City.
