Why not just go to the Belfast headline show....? Cheaper plus longer set?

You've a very vocal opinion on the festival already, and I don't like feeding the troll but...

Have you ever been to the festival, first and foremost? Your attitude stinks of someone who has never been, I'd be surprised if you were ever in the surrounding area tbh...
Sure Delvin isn't the most heavily populated place (referencing your other post about it being in the middle of nowhere), but why does that matter? It's in the middle of the country, perfect for anyone whose driving and an alternative to Dublin-centric gigs/festivals.
The grounds themselves add hugely to the atmosphere and it's a great setting for such a boutique festival. Why are M83 playing? Maybe it's because of the quality line-up, maybe it's because they were paid a fair bit, who knows?

How can you call it a two bob festival when basically every poster here has talked about how it's one of Ireland's best run festivals?

Do you dismiss it because you haven't heard of all the bands on the lineup?
Are you devestated Oxegen isn't on this year?

While I agree with much of the sentiment of the last post, we are spending too much time and effort (i.e. more than zero) feeding this particular troll.

Let's focus on something more rewarding, like idle speculation on what other acts will get added to the bill or something...

In that spirit, I'll ask my own question.

Am trying to decide whether to head down on the Friday night which would mean buying the add-on ticket - do people think there's going to be anything in terms of music that night (like a DJ set or something?) or is this really just permission to pitch your tent in advance of things kicking off Saturday afternoon?

The next person that calls another poster a troll is getting a long long ban.

If you think someone is a troll, report the post. Responding to it is the same as trolling imo.

As ever, if anyone wants to discuss this, send me a PM. DO NOT reply on thread.

In reference to my earlier question re the Friday night, the website states that there will be "no music on the main stages on this night" - I guess what I'm wondering is will there be music on something that is not a "main stage"

I'm pretty certain none of the advertised acts will be on but am wondering will there someone playing a dj set in the woods or something...

I haven't been to the festival before so have no idea of the layout or what type of set-up there is.

Just how many stages are at Body and Soul? Is there other little stages scattered around the place or just the mains stages listed on the website?

Am I right in assuming there is a lot more acts to be announced e.g. emerging Irish acts?

Getting excited for this now.
Exam on the monday before, taking the following monday off work.

Our little tribe is growing, it's going to be absolutely great. Can't make the picnic (although bar Van Dyke Parks and Sigur Ros there is little of interest in that lineup this year) so this will make up for it.
