This is the West coast of Ireland, anyone who predicts weather with confidence isn’t from here. However, it can only get better right! Looking at the Long-range for next week and it’s looking like blistering sunshine on the Sunday, showers on the Saturday and a dry day Friday, but we know all that can change. Organiser Daniel Brown mentions how the festival has been very lucky so far:
“So far every year we have had better weather than we deserve and we always end up thinking maybe we should have an open stage, but we always decide against it and make sure we have all the stages covered. I have to say one of the best memories from last year was when we got a heavy shower on the Friday and people packed into the tents with steam coming off them and dancing themselves dry!!! I don’t know how or why, but the sun always seems to come out in the end.”
