    Fake Blood not on the line up? Pretty sure I heard that. seen Fake Blood open for Diplo and was very impressed by the live show.

    I'd be going for everyone on that line-up....except Fatboy Slim :rolleyes:

    Still tickets for sale anyway.

    Going myself, only reason is I got a free ticket, should be a great gig mind you.

    Thinking about going to this. Still remember seeing his Brighton gig a few years ago and thinking Wow. Will see closer to the date but pretty tempted right now.

    Anyone ever go to gig by themselves?

    Not an irish gig,but went to Bloc Party on my own in brisbane in Australia and it was amazing,I just started talking to different people in the beer queue then hung around with a couple of them for the day!

    On topic,Fatboy Slim should be awesome,looking forward to seeing that David Guetta song aswell!


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,000 ✭✭✭ andreac


    yeah i cant wait, think ill go anyway, even if it is on my own, feck it.

    If I can get the money for this I'll go. Whats the capacity for Marley Park?

    @ The guy going by himself, you'll be grand. You will most likely get talking to a load of randomers most likely. Some of the best fun I had at oxegen was when I was by myself and got talking to randomers.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,000 ✭✭✭ andreac


    Oh im a girl by the way:D

    Not sure the capacity though, cant imagine it would be more than 10 or 20,000?? but i could be way off.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,883 ✭✭✭✭ Gavin "shels"


    32,000 capacity according to wiki.;)


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,000 ✭✭✭ andreac


    Ooops, i was a bit off with my numbers:o


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3 myth.


    yea.. i'm hitting it.

    should be fun.. i'm getting my ticket soon.

    tickets are sellng very poor for this know from a guy involved in it or working with it

    Most likely because €70 is waaaaay too expensive for the good part of the lineup. They should have dropped Fatboy and charged €30-€40 for the rest of the acts...
    Booked a few tickets for this the other day, such a contrast in value!!!

    It looks like a pretty good line up alright.

    Btw whats the song playing in the backround on the TV ad for the concert? Anyone know? Cheers!

    I wouldn't go to a gig on your own if you're a girl tbh especially this one!! Don't get me wrong I love fat boy slim and am hoping to get to this gig myself, but im expecting a lot of scangers there off their faces.

    Get the 16 from o connel st


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 396 ✭✭ jape


    yeah €70 is kinda way too expensive for this actually, I'm not goin. The last gig I was at in marlay park was only 2 years ago and had Kaiser chiefs, The Blizzards, The Fratellis, Ash, and was only €49. Once ppl keep payin these stupid ripoff prices, they'll continue to charge them.

    Not often I would have cause to say this but fair play to MCD.

    Just received an email offering me a fre ticket to Fatboy Slim in Marlay park as a goodwill gesture over the Slane debacle.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,550 NIBBS


    well I'd have mixed feelings about that - nice that you got something (I remember getting a choice of Meat Loaf or Bryan Adams tickets when Ozzy Osbourne didn't show at his own gig years back) - but in all honesty you are only getting that because the gig isn't selling well, if it were they wouldn't have offered tou anything....

    still it's some sort of compensation for the crap you had to put up with, I just wish they would fix the problems rather than throw tickets at people....

    ya, I knew the tickets weren't selling well for it but still at least it's a gesture. I was more expecting just the usual "we will review things" "won't happen again" etc.

    The tickets are selling (or not selling :D) for €70, so it's a decent offer.
