Dedicated to the memory of legendary Irish guitarist Rory Gallagher, this festival - located in the place of Gallagher's birth - is a celebration of the blues and rock sounds that influenced the man himself. Events are free too. Rarely will you find a town or an event more dedicated to the music. The festival attracts 10,000 people each year - nearly five times the regular population of the town.
Hot Press Picks: One of this year's highlights is an appearance by the Glen Hughes Band. Glen himself is a real legend.
