Simon Gray, Founder and Managing Director of Boost Drinks said: “To mark the launch of this fabulous new flavour, we wanted to find out what festival-goers in Northern Ireland loved most. It’s great to see that two local festivals are close favourites, with Belfast Vital topping the leader board followed closely by Belsonic. And with 62% saying they are open to finding romance, you might just meet your next partner at a festival this summer.”

It won’t come as much of a shock to hear that 49% of those surveyed said the worst thing about festivals are the toilets while 56% said the best thing about festivals are the memorable experiences.
