So, safe to say Ian and I were miles off with our predictions last week on For the Record on Flirt FM 101.3.
For those of you have been living under a rock, here’s the first list of acts released for this year’s installment of the music and arts festival which will take place from 2-4 September in Stradbally Estate.
This year’s festival boasts headliners like LCD Soundsystem, Chemical Brothers and New Order. LCD Soundsystem in particular were quite the coup as they will also be headlining this year’s Coachella.
All the old favorites like the Salty Dog, Body and Soul, Trench Town, Casa Bacardi and the Trailer Park will also be returning.
Day tickets for Sunday had already sold out before the line-up was even announced as did family weekend camping, standard campervan/caravan and family campervan/caravan tickets.
Weekend camping tickets (€234.50) are still on sale but may not last long. Last year quick-fingered festival fans had snapped up all tickets by June 20, almost three months before the event.
Personally, this is the big one I’ll be waiting for…
