PureMagic is well known for bringing in top class international surfers to Ireland for Battle for the Bay every May and now Battle for the Lake will welcome world Redbull KING OF THE AIR and Dutch Free Style Champion, Kevin Langeree. This high-flying Dutchman is well known in the surfing community as a wild daredevil while on the board, and the crowd in Achill Island are sure to be in for a spectacular treat. Langeree will be the Battle’s special guest, with demos on the lake and a DJ session
Great music and hysterical comedy will be on display all weekend from some of Ireland’s best loved acts. As a special treat, the day time schedule (until 5pm) is completely free with an area dedicated to families with a line-up of activities and performances including bouncy castle, fun fair rides, games, music, kite workshop and a fantastic kiddie disco. On both Saturday and Sunday, our surprise guest DJ will have everyone up grooving on the banks of the lake.
As night falls, be ready for some spectacular performances. We call the night show “THE BURNING LAKE”: Fire Performers, Fire Works above the water and some Amazing tunes… Windy or Rainy, the BATTLE for the Lake is sheltered and you will be comfy under our tents!
If all the dancing, laughing and gasping gets too much for you, relax and unwind in our food Village, with a fantastic view of the Lake
