Pure Magic Battle For the Lake Festival, Achill Island, Co. Mayo 30th Sept – 2nd Oct

Pure Magic Battle for the Lake is the last festival of the summer and it will be headlined by Ham SandwicH. The festival is in association with Mayo.ie & Failte Ireland.

Following the success of the Battle for the Bay that brought more than 60,000 smiles together on Dublin’s Dollymount Strand in May, the Pure Magic gang & friends are back to bring us into the magical world of Watersports and Music – this time with a Wild West coast style on Achill Island! Fight for the last of the summer rays and join us at the Pure Magic Battle for the Lake. Set the Wild Atlantic Way ablaze from the 30th of September to the 2nd of October with a weekend of fire, wind, sea and music. Nestled in Keel Lake on Achill Island the last weekend of summer fun, spraoi, music and family fun awaits.

Dance on the flaming wind into the night with the musicians and entertainers performing across three stages to the backdrop of the burning Lake. When night falls watch a rainbow of colours reflected in the Burning Lake, while you hear the crackle and bang of the superb firework display. The party on Saturday night keeps going with the exclusive Wave Crest after party where DJs surge the decks until the small hours.
