Lenafest 2022

On Friday 5th August, EA Youth Service & Youth Work Alliance hosted Lenafest 2022, a collaborative project which brought young people from across Derry and Strabane together for a music festival in the grounds of Lenamore Youth Centre.

Lenafest started with a family fun day with bouncy castles, retro games and cage soccer and continued into the evening with the main stage kicking off the party at 6pm.

Building on the success of the event last summer, the evening showcased a number of emerging bands from across the Derry and Strabane area and was attended by 483 young people and youth workers who spent the evening dancing along to the various music acts performing.

Head of Local Youth Service, Lynsey Branniff, said;

“I was delighted to be able to attend Lenafest which has been an amazing event, showcasing the musical talent of young people from the area. It’s great to see so many young people from across Derry and Strabane come along.
I want to extend a massive thanks to everyone who attended, including the Mayor of Derry and Strabane and well done to Marty and the youth service teams who supported the event, particularly our partners of the event, the Youth Work Alliance.”

Bring on Lenafest 2023!
