Summer festivals are many things to many people and this weekend it is all about the beach in Bundoran.

Sea Sessions music stage will be headlined by Kodaline, Tinie Tempah, Joel Corry and Basement Jaxx but Barefoot Beach Sports, sponsored by Barefoot Wine, will be there too featuring Volleyball, Soccer, Rugby, Frisbee and Yoga.

An annual part of Sea Sessions, Barefoot Beach Sports are open to all Sea Sessions festival goers from teams to individuals.

Barefoot Beach Sports has grown every year at Sea Sessions with each beach sport becoming its own mini-festival in its own right, with Barefoot wine, the main sponsor, helping grow the event over the last 13 years.

All proceeds for Barefoot Beach Sports will go to charity partners and event hosts Liquid Therapy, a multi-award-winning charity with its base in South Donegal.

They provide a supported environment that enables young people to experience the physical and therapeutic benefits of the surf and ocean, through individually tailored programs. Barefoot Wine has proudly supported Liquid Therapy since its inception nearly 10 years ago.

In 2018 the business featured as part of the Sport for Business Sport for Social Good conference after winning a major Good Causes Award from the National Lottery.

The Barefoot Tag Rugby and Barefoot Soccer events run on the Saturday of the festival in the Surfers Village beside Waterworld. 5 minutes walk from the festival site. Each tournament is delivered in a knockout format with the two highest-scoring teams also progressing to the second round.

Beach Volleyball is hosted by Beach Volleyball Irelandwho will be running a mixture of display games and workshops. The Beach Volleyball will take place on the Main Beach in Bundoran right in front of the festival site.

There will be open courts for those that want to give it a go and we will run a social competition on the Sunday.

Beach Frisbee will be run similar to the Beach Volleyball with display games and workshops on the Saturday on the Main beach and a social competition on the Sunday.

Beach yoga sessions take place on Main Beach (between Lifeguard flags) where your group session is hosted by qualified yoga instructors.

This will be the 13th Festival for Sea Sessions having started way back in 2008. The whole party takes place right by the beach and has hosted some of the biggest international acts on the circuit including the likes of Bastille, Dermot Kennedy, Paul Weller, Clean Bandit and Picture This to name but a few.
