Can't see a 2018 thread so....

Line-up coming soon according to an instagram post this morning. Usually end of February so might be coming earlier than usual.
Early bird got since last August - can't wait! One or two kind of well known headliners would be good though.

Probably my favourite festival from last year. Just love the setup. Can't wait for it again this time around!

Some names from the Primavera line-up that I'd love to see @ BnS and aren't already booked for Ireland this year afaik... 3 or 4 of these would keep me happy.

Bjork (prob unrealistic, expect to see her @ EP)
Spiritualized
James Holden & The Animal Spirits
Daphni
DJ Koze (please please please!!!)
Mano Le Tough
Mount Kimbie
Mogwai
Car Seat Headrest
Slowdive

I could list about 20 more electronic music names that I only know by reputation but I bet would go down a treat (e.g. Seth Troxler disco set)

Absolutely amazing news was hoping they were doing Electric Picnic, but hopefully I'm going to this too, they couldn't have picked a better suited act than Fever Ray.

I agree, Fever Ray will be amazing. I can't make B&S this year and I'm devastated!

this will be my first time going to B&S. As regular EP goers we've decided to change it a bit this year. Any tips ye wish to share I'd appreciate them

Select the Us & You Campsite option when buying your ticket. Usually full of sound heads and it has it's own wristband exchange queue.

Just listening to Fever Ray Live at Lulea and my mind is been blown by Coconut, I canna wait, they are shockingly good.



Edit: The audio in this one is better.

Hey guys, long time picnicer, first time at B&S, does this festival have a lot going on into the wee hours, I know electric picnic generally wraps up around 5am and was hoping for something similar here?

How is the festival for the oul cans of drink, can I bring them to "main arena" ?

Are there generally public buses running from Dublin as well?

Thanks in advance !

There's a limit on how much each person is allowed bring onsite (not sure how rigourously enforced, details of amounts on their website) but once you have it at your tent, you can bring it anywhere - all festival areas, mainstage etc.

I wasn't there last year, but I was for the previous 8 years.

Dance music to about 4 or 5 am.

There is a free flow drink policy which means once you get in the site, there are no further searches for alcohol. I think you might be limited to 24 cans to bring on site tough.

I don't know anything about buses.

I do know that over the last 10 years or so, this has been the most relaxed and enjoyable mid-sized festival in Ireland. Nicer vibes than EP with a more grown up crowd.

You're not allowed back in with booze so make sure to bring it all in initially, in my experience they've never been very strict on the 24 cans per person rule.
