Popular music persona Mundy is among the many artists who will be playing at the tenth edition of the Battle for the Lake festival on Achill Island.
The festival, which combines an international kitesurfing competition with nighttime entertainment featuring some of the best Irish bands and other performers, will take place over the weekend of September 27 to 29.
Superstar Irish singer-songwriter Mundy returns to Battle for the Lake having played at the very first festival in 2009, when he stole the show. Festival-goers are now excitedly awaiting his return to celebrate the festival’s tenth edition.
Organised by Pure Magic, in association with Mayo.ie and Rockshore, Battle for the Lake has grown year on year, with food stalls, amusement rides and art installations attracting the crowds alongside the water-sports and the music. This year’s festival is expected to see as many as 5,000 descend on Achill Island for the weekend.
Battle for the Lake will also welcome a number of fantastic musical acts across the weekend, with Irish DJ Daithi and Attention Bebe once again making a welcome return.
Stolen City, a three-piece band from Dublin, will be a definite crowd pleaser, while Junior Brother, a guitar- and tambourine-playing folk artist, will bring an element of craic agus ceol with his fun country vibes.
Fresh from playing at the Body and Soul stage at Electric Picnic, Achill native Graham Sweeney will be a hometown favourite, while some of the hottest up-and-coming artists within the Irish music scene, such as Beef Supreme, TBL8, Lypton Village, Tommy McGovern, Swiftie and Faraway Martin, are sure to delight festival goers of all ages.
Watching the world’s best kitesurfers – including Dutch Free-Style Champion Kevin Langeree – battle it out on Keel lake will also make for an awesome, crowd-pleasing spectacle.

Tickets for the Battle for the Lake festival are now on sale and available to buy on www.battleforthelake.com.
