Foróige are delighted to announce ‘Wild Youth’ will take to the stage at this year’s Hype Festival on Saturday 16th May


Hype Youth Festival is a Foróige event which started in 2012 and supports the day today running of the Foróige Attic House teen project in Longford town. All proceeds from the event go to running programmes and activities for young people at the Foróige Attic House Teen Project. This year is the 9th year of the Festival and it promises to be the biggest and loudest one yet!

2019 was a busy year for Wild Youth and saw them performing at the sold out Longtitude Festival two sold shows in Croke Park supporting Westlife, and storming the main stage at Electric Picnic in September.

Continuing on from the massive success of Wild Youth’s EP ‘The Last Goodbye’ which debuted at number 5 in the Irish Albums Charts, the Dublin pop-rock superstars went on to sell out their first ever headline show in the Olympia Theatre, Dublin.

In addition to a string of live shows, their outrageously catchy song ‘Can’t Move On’ has earned them over 2 million streams.

Wild Youth are David Whelan, Conor O’ Donohue, Ed Porter and Callum McAdam


So, if you think you need an uber (you might!) but you definitely need to save the date for an exciting day in May and book your ticket online now for just €35!
