COVID UPDATE - 2021 EDITION:
The festival is once again on stand by and there will be no tents or stages or official
competitions. However we will be there with the Pure Magic Gang & friends to enjoy safely the wild of Achill Island. Everyone is welcome to join. Bring your surf or your kite, bring your guitar and your firneds and come to enjoy the island in the most simple way. Achill Island is still the epicentre of the Waterpsorts and Autumn months deliver the best conditions we can dream of! There will be many kites in the sky. Stay safe and responsible!
The whole idea behind the Battle for the Lake is to gather people around our passions, about your passions: the watersports and the music of course, but also to be with friends and enjoy good moments of life in a truely magical place!

VERY VERY FAQ
1/ FREE OR NOT FREE EVENT? I AM CONFUSED!!!
Well, do not panic we explain now: we started as a free sport event in 2010 on Achill and we believe No one should pay to see some Kitesurfing and other Sports! especially all our local kid friends of Achill! So everyone is welcome to join us FOR FREE all day long! However, The night time Program has a cost and to bring all these super stars and musicians to Achill, we ask everyone to Participate... Just to cover the cost! Our Mission is to grow this Event and put Achill on the Map of the wildest Event Location ever ( due to the winds )
2/I HAVE KIDS AND I WANT TO COME IN THE EVENING...
No problemo, Kids under 12 come free and as long as there is an adult with any under 18, everyone can enjoy the peaceful and family friendly show. Of course No alcohol for under 18 is permitted
3/ I actually have a 3rd question... What about the Fire Works?
ok ok...You can enjoy the fireworks for Free , sharing is caring! There will be a no ticket zone for the Display. You will see it from far away anyway #boumboum #gobigorgohome #welikebigbigbigBIG
