Life festival encourages attendees to get out and vote before going

Life festival kicks off this Friday, May 25th. 

If that date sounds familiar to you, it should, as it's the day that the country will vote whether to maintain or repeal the 8th amendment to the Irish constitution.  

When the date for the referendum was set, many expressed concern on social media that some young people would not get out and vote that morning if they were attending Life festival.
