The healyfest is a small rock festival that takes place in ballycastle co mayo. it was started by local band Sonic reducer 3 years ago and has grown each year. This year we had 8 bands perform, jonnie warnock, lefty desk, the giant wombats, the alter boys, the minority, the dirty 9's, sonic reducer, and the gandhis. All bands perform for free, admission is free to everyone from toddlers to pensioners and everyone in between. There is a BBQ, bouncy castle and camping (also free), etc. Its never been advertised and probably never will be. Everything is organised by locals through word of mouth. Its as non-commercial as it gets and is totally bull**** free!
Its takes place on the 1st sunday of august every year when the whole village is rocked to its foundations.
The best thing to do if you want to know more is grab a tent and sleeping bag and get your arse down here next year!
