Over the past seven years, Life Festival, first held in 2006, has progressed from an outdoor weekend ‘underground’ party, attracting a 500 strong crowd at Charleville Castle in County Offaly, to Ireland’s premier dance music festival.

Following its initial success, the event moved to Lough Cutra Castle in Gort, Co. Galway in 2007 & 2008 and increased it’s capacity to 2000 party-goers. The following year, the festival organisers decided to move closer to Dublin and the event was moved to Ballinlough Castle (current home of the Body & Soul Festival) before finally settling at its current home of Belvedere Castle in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath where it has been in residence since 2010.
