Revellers party all night at booze-free gig

THOUSANDS of teenagers proved you do not need drink to enjoy yourself on an isolated beach at the weekend.

Some 1,800 revellers enjoyed an alcohol and drug-free music festival on Lacken Strand, Mayo.

The Foroige 'Band on the Strand' continued into the early hours. Headline acts included Ballina band 'Flat Out', party rockers 'Now That's What I Call Live' and DJ Steven Cooper.

"In a week that has seen much debate about alcohol in Ireland, festivals like ours prove that great events can take place where alcohol does not play a part," said CEO Sean Campbell.
