    Hi dudes,

    This probably isnt the right place to post this but I dont know where else to put it so give out if necessary but I'm dying to know what kind of drink is served inside Slane?? I'm not a beer drinker what-so-ever so dread places that only do 1 kind of booze or brand.. my fingers are crossed for wine!!

    This is my first year going so thats why I've no clue whats sold up there.

    Thanks!



    For all those of you that wish to make a complaint. Here are the means to go about it. If you feel you have a real aggrievance please take the few minutes to take it up with the appropriate agency

    an oasis fan that doesn't like beer :eek:

    what next?

    being serious for a second, they always have an alternative for the ladies. wine is usually the choice.

    My dad works for Heineken and has done Slane for the last 10 years.

    Apparently this year it's Heineken, Coors, Murphys and Red/White wine

    Sorry if this has already been asked, but had a bit of a look and couldn't find anything else!

    Has Oasis at Slane sold out? Or is the ticketmaster website just being annoying today??

    Thanks a million to anyone who can tell me!

    And sorry everyone if this Q has been asked a million times! :D

    How does toutless work? Just by meeting up with the person is it?

    Does anybody know what the story with campsites in slane...I know there is none inside the actual grounds but just wondering if there are any sites nearby...Have no accomodation sorted


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 192 ✭✭ halfinch


    What time would you be wanting to get to the grounds at? Is it really a 7km hike to the stage?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,054 ✭✭✭ JJ


    I wouldn't say it's 7k but it's a fairly long walk, maybe more like 2k.

    If you need accomodation, you could get a place in Dublin then get the shuttle bus that goes to Slane on the day.

    When i went to chilli peppers in 03. We parked in a locally operated car park (a field) and paid a lad at the gate.
    That was six years ago though
    Im goin down this year in a campervan though:D


  • Registered Users Posts: 244 ✭✭ Jayo11780


    Thinking of getting a campervan too... where is the nearest campsite to park it up though???


  • Registered Users Posts: 76 ✭✭✭ gombeen99


    Does anyone know if / when Ticketmaster is posting tickets out? I bought tickets months ago but haven't received them yet. Roll on Slane!


  • Registered Users Posts: 116 ✭✭ simons104


    hey might be a silly q but can u bring your own drink into slane???

    No.

    Its nearly always possible to bring in spirits mixed in a soft drinks bottle though, the lid will be taken off you however you can always have a spare one down your pants.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 592 BubbleWrap85


    No you can't bring your own beer.

    Check your ticketmaster account email inbox to see if you selected print off yourself instead of post - that happened me before. Realistically you should have gotten them by now. Check your ticketmaster a/c and if they're not there give them a call straight away.

    On another note, will there be a shuttle bus going from Drogheda?

    Hey.
    Im going to be camping at slane this year. I would love to bring up my guitar so I can bash out a few chords after the gig with a few cans. But theres no chance in hell Im leaving it in my tent.
    Does anybody know if there are lockers/storage spaces at slane?


  • Registered Users Posts: 7 ✭✭✭ podgerella


    If you park in the fields operating as car parks, Can you camp by your car? Has anyone ever done this?

    No but i'm sure it's not very quiet all the same...

    And to answer what you meant:

    There are no official camp sites for slane.

    Anyone know of a bus going to Slane from Blanchardstown ???


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,588 ✭✭✭ Bluetonic


    Stage times etc..,


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,054 ✭✭✭ JJ


    With regards to buses, I think it's safe to say that the only official buses on the day to Slane are from the city centre so you'll have to get your sorry ass to Parnell Square if you want to take the bus.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 592 BubbleWrap85


    Anyone know anything about buses going from Drogheeeeeda?


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,588 ✭✭✭ Bluetonic


    Anyone know anything about buses going from Drogheeeeeda?
    Bus Eireann (from the local depot) will be running buses, they always have done. Try ringing them on 041 9835023

    At 8 miles a taxi is what you should be looking at.
