    THIRD HEADLINER CONFIRMED
    Delighted to announce that after many months of chasing acts for Daytripper 2018, our 3rd Headliner was confirmed today. We are happy that we have a great mix of top quality international and national acts, with something for everyone over the last weekend of summer, Fri 24 to Sun 26 August. Full details to be announced on Fri 13 April.
    DAYTRIPPER 2018 🕺ðŸ»ðŸŽ¸ðŸ’႒🎧ðŸºðŸ˜Ž

    same weekend as the pope is in Ireland but I doubt it will have much effect on this. Be interesting to see who the acts are and hoping its not a certain UB40 (they are free on the 24th and 26th Aug) as they have had enough slots here the last few years

    Id love someone like Manic Street Preachers

    Surprised they can still afford to get someone to update that Facebook page, they lost a fortune over the past few years,

    Hearing the Saturday will be walking on cars and the coronas.
    Sunday Aslan and the guy who told me was hinting at madness but not sure .
    First night they were trying for underworld but don't think it came off

    Underworld are playing the other festival so I'd say they were outbid and with the bigger crowd I'd imagine they would have preferred it anyway.

    They have said that each days headline act have never played in the south east before.

    Fair point. The guy who told me would be well connected to it and def said walking on cars. The coronas and Aslan. From what he described I took it as madness but can't be certain. It could well be those 3 Irish acts on the one night with walking on cars the headline for that night

    Id say snow patrol could deffo be a headliner. Makes sense when they said they haven't played southeast yet, have been chart toppers and also they are going to be playing in cork and wexford aswell

    There prob too big

    That's only a small tour to promote the new album.

    I'd be happy with them playing Daytripper tbh. Looking forward to seeing the lineup Friday
