HYPE Youth Festival - Saturday 13th May 2017

Once again we are calling on all Foróige clubs to come together to celebrate the end of the Foróige Club year. We are delighted to announce the return of the now annual Foróige HYPE Youth Festival. The festival will take place on Saturday May 13th 2017 at 5pm. Following on from the huge success of last year’s festival which attracted over 4000 young people to Longford, it is envisaged that the event will be the biggest one yet. This one day event offers all that is good about a music festival in a safe and well supervised environment. We want your members to experience the thrills of a great gig and a great day out without any of the worries normally associated with such events. This is a music festival for young people and about young people.
Watch this space for details of a great line up of live bands and well-known DJ from Today Fm. For only €30 per person, young people can also enjoy the many other attractions of the day such as an inflatable theme park, RSA Shuttle bus, Giant disco tent, water waltzer’s, photo booth, inflatable obstacle course, a chill out tent and much, much more.

Six Music slots available on the main stage @ Hype 2017

Every Foróige club/Project attending the event has the chance to put forward a musical act, to perform on the day. A two minute YouTube demo of your proposed entrant must be sent to by the 10th March 2017. These demos will be viewed by a selection committee, from which six acts will be selected to play on the main stage at Hype 2017.

Tickets for the Hype Youth Festival must be paid in FULL by Friday 28th April 2017. An order form and any cheques can be made payable to The Attic Youth Café and returned in the addressed envelope provided in your club's pack. We really hope that your club members can join us for the day and be part of the Foróige’s National Youth Festival dedicated to Foróige members all over Ireland.
