Shit lineup in fairness.

EP seems to mostly get the chaff from the major UK festival circuit.

in ireland these days it seems that blandness sells.. so promoters will go with what brings in the bucks, that's just biz, innit



to paraphrase bill shankly: if any of those acts were playing my front garden i'd draw the curtains

have to agree with you there...no comparison to the line ups at some of the big festivals all over Europe and more expensive than those too!!


serious lack of diversity too compared to European festivals..


EP is proof that festival promoters don't have to bother any more to make their money

Once upon a time the promoters would have turned their nose up at anything like those acts for fear of attracting too many gobshites. Picture This as a headliner? EP is finished. And to top it off they're increasing the capacity next year

That new featival in Waterford looks promising but didn't think they had enough on the bill this year. One to watch maybe
