In Ireland. FRI 31ST-SUN 2ND SEP 07, STRADBALLY HALL, STRADBALLY CO LAOIS

Fuck Yeah! Where to buy a ticket??? Sorry I've posted this one in nonsonics accidentaly.


This year's highlights include The Beastie Boys doing their first Irish show in over a decade; the recently reformed Iggy And The Stooges - their only UK/Ireland performance this year; a rare live outing by the wonderful Bjork; ex-Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker; a hark back to 1980s punk-pop with The Jesus And Mary Chain; cutting edge dance-rock from LCD Soundsystem - who have just released one of the albums of the year; the newly resurgent Primal Scream; the first ever Irish show by the Damon Albarn-led The Good, The Bad and The Queen; Modest Mouse, the dramatic Polyphonic Spree and the eminently adaptable Craig Armstrong; Soul II Soul - who are arriving over with a 12 piece band and string section in tow! Paul Hartnoll's The Ideal Condition make a debut performance in Ireland and the return of the Dublin Gospel Choir who will be there to redeem your souls on Sunday morning.

Also performing are: Sonic Youth, Aim, The Go Team!, Ratatat, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Ladytron, Jamie Lidell, Damien Dempsey, The Magic Numbers, The Undertones, Fujiya & Miyagi, Horace Andy, Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain, Marlena Shaw, !!! (Chk, Chk, Chk), A Trak, Josh Wink, Electrelane, Bonde do Role, Deerfhoof, Kieran Hebden & Steve Reid, Derek May, Hextatic, Derick Carter, The Glimmers, The Elecktrons, DJ Marky, plus many more yet to be announced.

nah, man, weekend only. it's a good little festival...went last year, was worth the admittedly ridiculous price.

and though the line-up this year is decent, there's a good few yet to be added. wilco, for instance, are pretty much confirmed, but not on that list.

yep -- may 9th, the village, check ticketmaster. as for liars, that would be too cool.

foggy notions organize a stage every year. they usually put on some super cool indie-type stuff. last year they had yo la tengo. line up for that should be announced soon-ish.

in deed. should be worth it.

seen a shitload of good stuff there last year: mogwai, pj harvey, ylt, broken social scene. crowd's fairly lax, too. especially compared to the inhabitants of the shithole that is oxegen.

as for them playing ddn, i don't think so. they'd have mentioned it, i think. not too bothered, first time seeing them, they could play anything. but the sprawl would be a treat

Same here man. Had a ticket for the Saturday show but organised a change to Thursday, and changed my flights this morning. So here's my crazy plan:

Fly to London on Thursday morn. Rock the Youth. Sleep in airport and fly back to Dublin at 10.00am Friday morning. Head straight to the Picnic for more antics.

I've spent over 550euro alone today - EP tickets for my girlfriend and I, and the bastard Ryanair charging me 100euro to change my flights by 2 days.

Still, gonna be the most amazing weekend ever.

It's a great line-up, I've never been to EP, but with sonic youth playing, and jarvis as well. I'll have to find the money from somewhere to go. I've never seen SY, and am dying to see them, and it's been so long since I've been to a festival. Money, money, money....

doubt they'll play DDN start to finish but i'd say it'll be a fairly DDN heavy set in any case. If they spend time gearing up the songs for the don't look back tour they probably won't just drop them all from the set when they're done.
I'd love to see that, they diddn't play any DDN the last time I saw them.

Need a couple of days to get the money together, but if I remember rightly took a little while to sell out last year so should be ok.

It is a good festival over all, especially food wise. Even had decent sushi last year. Can't argue with that.

Getting my EP ticket in the morning... it's going to be an insane weekend. SY are the only band I'd do this shit for
