Lisa ready to get a little animated.

Lisa Hannigan and Kila have been lined up to perform at Ireland's very first animation festival which is taking place next month.

Kilkenny Animated is a new event featuring "visual storytelling, incorporating cartoons, animation and illustration".

It'll be hosted by Academy Award nominees Cartoon Saloon.

The Kilkenny-based studio are hoping it'll be third time lucky as their latest offering The Breadwinner is up for an Oscar was also recently nominated for a Golden Globe.

Talking about the festival, a spokesman said: "Kilkenny Animated is the first festival of its kind in the world to bring together so many different aspects of visual storytelling for the enjoyment and appreciation of wider public audience."

Highlights include an amazing programme of workshops, talks and slideshows; an art exhibition; stand up comedy with 2D animation and anarchic projections from Bec Hill and Howard Read, live animation from Hungarian group Bandart; the premiere of animated series Cul an Ti (TG4, Paper Panther, Cartoon Saloon) with live music from Kila, Lisa Hannigan and special guests; and the Hometown Gala Premiere of Cartoon Saloon's Oscar and Golden Globe-nominated feature The Breadwinner, with a special post -show interview with director, Nora Twomey."

Kilkenny Animated runs in Kilkenny city from February 23 until 25. Tickets are on sale now.
