The lineup of musicians which Saltwater has assembled is noteworthy, including as it does Eileen Ivers and Immigrant Soul, Karan Casey and John Doyle, Buille, The Prodigals, The Dublin City Ramblers, The Screaming Orphans, and many more.

Camping will be available on-site and many of the artists will have meet-and-greets following their performances. Celtic-themed food and beverage vendors will serve throughout the day, and Saltwater will also feature a beer garden for attendees who are over 21. On top of all this, Thomas Point Beach offers a beautiful playground for children and a sand beach.

A full program of Saltwater satellite events - which will be separately ticketed - is also scheduled for outlying venues in the days leading up to the festival, with performances from Canada's Bb Sisters, Maeve Gilchrist, The Screaming Orphans and more. An all-star Maine Celtic session will also be held at Byrne’s Irish Pub in Brunswick.
