About The Festival

The Ballygawley Music Festival

Ballygawley Music Festival was founded in 2019. It is a 3 night music festival which takes place in Ballygawley Village, Co Sligo. With the success of our first year where over 1800 people attended plans are in place to grow the event.

The festival is run by a group of energetic volunteers from the community with support from our many sponsors. The aim of the event is to host a unique and diverse music event annually in our village (over 18s) and any proceeds from the event go back into the development of our community park.

In 2019 acts such as Johnny Brady, Mike Denver, Jim Devine headlined plus many support acts including many local artists.

The 2020 festival was cancelled due to Covid-19.
