Think it would be pointless moving it to another bank holiday weekend. What Castlebar needs to do is make our festival more attractive than others around the country. Move away from Blues, I work in a pub in town and nobody from out of town comes in for it, and anybody from town goes to pubs that aren't playing it.
I don't think family fun days make any money for the town either, they may be fun for young people but me being in my 20's it has no appeal to me, either does Blues.
In my opinion we should work to make something that works all the pubs, the TF and all shops in town working together to bring business to the town.
For example, 3 large international acts for different age ranges on each night in the TF, while during the day their came be family events on the Mall and promotions in shops in town, while the pubs can get in bands of different genres so their is something for everyone
