Tickets There is proud to announce West Fest 2011. This is Mayo’s answer to Oxegen/Electric Picnic but without the mud and traffic jams!

Guaranteed to be Mayo’s biggest music event of 2011, West Fest is a two day event running over the 4th and 5th of June. This will be a bank holiday to remember with the line up including amazing acts such as Imelda May, The Coronas, Republic of Loose, Sharon Shannon Big Band and special guest Damien Dempsey, Ryan Sheridan, Bagatelle, Big Generator, Brush Shiels, The Kilkennys and i102-104 Dj Fergal D’arcy.

Camping will also be available for anybody wishing to attend both nights. And there’s no need to worry about the Irish weather folks, as all the acts are under a Big Top tent which can hold up to 5000 people!   

The line up for the weekend is as follows:

Saturday 4th June: Imelda May, Republic of Loose, Brush Shiels, Big Generator, Microlip, DJ Set Hi Jackers, The Kapitals, R&B’s, The Stunts, Town Crier, Microlip, Key West

Sunday 5th June:  The Coronas, Sharon Shannon, Ryan Sheridan, Bagatelle, The Kilkennys, The Craic, Capture, N’Deed, Leaving Las Vegas, TKO, John & Emma, DJ Fergal D’arcy
