Life Festival are putting on an outdoor Halloween event called Back To Life, on October 31st.

“We have missed the dance floors, the artists, the planning, the purpose and most of all, You, our community. We have been left without these important moments of gathering, our event crew and artists without work and a chance to do what they do best. With this in mind Back to Life will be an intimate Halloween gathering of friends, championing a largely Irish line-up and creating a safe space for us to gather. This is just the beginning, the good times are around the corner.
