Thousands of teenagers from across Ireland will travel to Longford tomorrow (Saturday) to rock out at Ireland’s largest drug and alcohol free music festival for teenagers.
The Foróige HYPE Youth Fest gets underway on the grounds of St. Mel’s College in Longford town at 4pm on Saturday and will run until the early hours of Sunday morning.
Visually, there will be lots happening - as well as live bands, attractions include an inflatable theme park, water waltzers, a giant disco tent and much more.
Now in its fourth year, the hugely popular festival proves that teenagers do not need drugs or alcohol to have a good time.

Money raised through ticket sales is going towards the development of a dedicated youth facility for the young people of Longford. Tickets, priced €30, are exclusive to Foróige members. For more information, visit; www.hypefestival.ie.
