Longford Leader gallery: Huge crowds descend on Magical Hype Festival 2019

The rain stayed away and the crowds didn't disappoint at Longford's Hype Festival 2019 went off to huge acclaim.

The HYPE line-up featured some of the biggest names in Irish music including The Aftermath, UV5, Storyfold, This Club, The Kanyu Tree, Roy Seven and Fergal Darcy. These were complimented by the Disco Tent, a giant games tent, a chill out tent with all-day movies, a karaoke tent, a zorbing area, a climbing wall, a bungee run, a giant slide, lazer tazer, and Gladiators.

HYPE is organised and promoted by The Attic Youth Café and Foróige. 

We hope this gallery of photos, captured by Shelley Corcoran, bring back some happy memories and don't forget to tag and share with your friends.
