Highlights from Not Bad, a west coast music festival

Oh the memories! You forget? Let us stimulate your remembrances.

Not Bad started as the pilot to a new music festival with a focus on connecting original musicians, DIY music scenes and music lovers on the west coast of Ireland.

Taking place across three Galway city venues in November, the first Not Bad festival featured acts from Donegal, Sligo, Mayo, Galway, Clare, Limerick, Kerry and Cork.

The opening night of the festival was in The Black Gate on Friday November 29th with performances from Eoin Dolan, Aul Boy, Field Trip, Sinead Ann and New Pope. On Saturday November 30th we took over Aras na nGael for a day and night of indie music featuring MudBubble, Dott, Myles Manley, Cruiser, Arthuritis, Neptune M, Dead Horse Jive, Archmotors, Bury Me With My Money and NewDad. On Sunday December 1st Livefeed, a Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture Project, hosted an all-ages event in Nun’s Island Theatre showcasing youth music from Galway.

Not Bad was supported by Creative Ireland, Galway City Arts Service and Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture.
