Westival is the oldest music and arts festival in the West of Ireland, taking place for almost fifty years in Westport, Co. Mayo. Our goal is to showcase Ireland’s increasingly diverse art-scene. This multidisciplinary experience presents music, theatre, film, spoken word, visual arts and more.
This year’s theme, Direction – Forward – a term coined by friend of the festival, FELISPEAKS – is symbolic of a re-energised community and the return to live events, post-Covid. The theme also touches on an exciting new era for festival programmers, in an increasingly diverse music and arts scene in Ireland.
Taking place in Westport Co. Mayo, organisers are inviting visitors to the beautiful town to experience this legacy arts festival which has, for decades, been driven by an inclusive and passionate community of creatives and volunteers.
