Westfest 2015

 

Now in its fifth year, the Westfest Line Up is one of the best kept secrets on the Irish summer festival scene, with exceptional bands performing over 4 sensational nights of music and entertainment! Based in the GAA Grounds of the Castle Demense in Newcastle West the headline night on Saturday 12th of September will see the UK Reggae group UB40 take the stage along with Top UK Artist Example and four piece Dublin Rock Band The Riptide Movement.

Lead singer of UB40 Robin Campbell said, “It’s our first time playing a festival in Limerick and we’ve heard great things about Westfest, we are really looking forward to coming over”. 90’s rockers The Stunning top the bill as Sunday night’s main act, while Walking On Cars, another one of Ireland’s most imaginative bands, are to headline on Friday night, with support from Róisín O. Other acts over the weekend include Derek Ryan, Declan Nerney, Danny Battles, Hudson Taylor, Ryan Sheridan, Breaking Trad and Newcastle West homegrown talent Sketch.

Event co-founder and organiser Siobhan Kelly said it was important Westfest retained its reputation for giving value for money and putting the West Limerick town on the festival map. “We’ve come from having one headline artist Mundy in 2011 to The Coronas selling out the main square last year and now on our 5th Birthday we have 12 international acts coming to town, the festival has provided at stage for people to enjoy established artists on their doorstep in a proper festival environment”.

In between all the music, there’s plenty of entertainment on offer for all the family. There’s bouncing castles, drumming workshops, fireworks, a 5k color run, Sportive Cycle with a choice of distances and a Carnival to keep the kids happy.This year’s Festival Food Court will also have an eclectic street food offering, with exotic Asian influences, as well as more traditional food-to-go, including some Italian pizza, Gourmet Sausages and ice cream vendors.
