Agreed-the thing is now they've had a lot to prove will they continue to prove it or get lazy like Oxegen? I reckon EP will get better though but they are two very different festivals and the more the better. I'd love an Electric Picnic kinda event to come to Cork though eventually, that would be a dream come true.
and as a final parting note,i propose a bass tent at next years.
that shit was done right,sunday night,and i hear saturday's was as good.
That would be our dream, but seeing as we find it hard enough to do anything in cork, i wouldnt hold out much hope.
A load of people from places like limreck, galway, dublin, cavan, more or less all around ireland had heard of the sound system and about us in general which was great. It was also great to have simon conway from electric city and the bodytonic lads play for us, without doubt nearly the best 2 underground club nights in ireland.
Saturdays was great, especially the fire works, i remeber looking down the road at one point and seeing at-least 300-400 people around us and going to myself how did all these people get here!
i heard about 5 different groups talking on sunday(our tent was at the path-side) about how much it was a shame the cops shut it down "cos it was great and nobody minded".and i went in to our tent for supplies at one point,to see a steady stream of people goin in and out to it!
id say it it was like organising a gig and not having to worry about doing any promotion. the crowd was a given. besides a few adventures on the 'dancefloor' i was happy to just pan out and soak it all up. bass lads should be well proud. cant give em enough praise for what was really a major highlight of the weekend
