summer festivals


With the weather finally picking up and summer so close we can almost taste it, it's time to start planning our summer festival schedule.

If there's one thing Ireland does well, it's music festivals, and we've just found another one to add to our ever-growing wish list.

Groove returns to the gorgeous Killruddery Estate in Co Wicklow for a third year running this July 4th and 5th, and the line-up is pretty stellar indeed.

The Darkness will rock the stage on the Saturday night, with Christy Moore taking over on Sunday night to finish out what's sure to be an epic weekend.

Kila and The Riptide Movement will also perform, with many other main stage acts to be announced, along with the line-up for the Harbour Bar Stage, the children's area and more.

Tickets start at €49.50 for one day or €69.50 for two, plus booking fee. Child and family tickets are also available.

See you there!



The Electric Picnic line-up was announced today, and even though the festival itself is still a whole six months away, the buzz is already beginning.

Here are a few of the things you can expect to happen over the coming days, weeks and months.

1. Everyone disses the line-up as being "so boring compared to last year."
"Florence? WHAT ABOUT HOZIER?" etc.


2. You then promptly forget about the festival for at least three months
It's only March, y'all.


3. Until whispers start that it's about to sell out


4. You start bargaining with colleagues for days off on the Friday before and Monday after
"I'll give you half my paycheck if you'll work the Monday morning for me. Deal?"


5. You finally get everything sorted… and realise you've no tent. Or wellies
*cue frantic rush to get the very last pop-up tent in Dunnes*


6. You insist on stocking up on six times more alcohol than you'll ever drink in one weekend
God forbid you'd run out, though


7. You hop in the car for the drive down to Stradbally, full of the joys of life
This will be you:


8. And return home four days later with the worst. Hangover. Ever.
So worth it, though…
