    oh wait i take that back i just checked the website...... king kong company and jenny greene. i wont be purchasing!

    Sunday line up is some craic. somewhere in between Rudimental and smash hits they have advertised a "very special guest" so my bet is Rick Whelan :D:D

    when you see tribute bands in your top 3 artists of the day you know this festival is ****ed


  • Registered Users Posts: 218 ✭✭ cbmonstra


    Absolutely hyped for this lineup.

    Just bought tickets for the Saturday only. Can't afford the whole weekend, (already going to ATN) but would love to be able to.

    Went to the first couple of years of Daytripper, but not last year as I thought the lineup was a bit lack lustre.

    This is amazing though. Fair play to the organisers. Will be great to see Waterford become a destination for concert goers. It was always a great town for live music back in the day, so hoping this is the start of good things for the Deise.

    yes - its infinitely better than an annual appearance from UB40 and a wedding band

    Yeah, some. Its not Coachella. Not a fraction of what now goes to EP. Id say you'll get a **** load of decent late 30's early 40's festival stalwarts.

    Sister sledge....that's brilliant.as always, daytripper is a great night out even if none of the acts are the oft quoted on here 'my type of music'.haven't missed a year yet so delighted they came up with an act anyone (maybe a bit older) into music can have a great night out, few beers, listen to some decent music, etc.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,174 ✭✭✭ friendlyfun


    Pity MC Pat Flynn isn't headlining. I think he's a wonderful musician. Gifted. His music fills me with such intense emotion. Such endearing tunes that remind me of past rendezvous with girls such as "Get on ur knee" a song which encourages all the young people to fall to their knees in prayer at veneration of our Lord.

    Not interested in any of the bands but 46euro a ticket per day is a bit steep IMO. ATN was 129eur for a "proper" three day festival. Also I think advertising Basement Jaxx is a bit misleading especially when it seem to be only a "DJ" slot. Acts like 'Smash Hits' and 'Mack Fleetwood' belong in dancehalls, discos or @ weddings.

    If you are gonna organise something like this than make one day for the younger crowd, one day for the indie kids/musos and the 3rd day for the more mature set. Simple. And there is enough decent acts out there to compile a pretty good line up.

    The Sunday will do well cause there in with the masons/foundry crowd

    Saturday for nostalgia as i think basement jaxx were 90s.

    Friday for the older crowd

    Not a big fan of having cover bands high up the bill but they will get the crowd going. It's another get thing for the city giving it's in the centre and near the pubs. Didn't go since 2015 as acts didnt interest me same with this year. Hopefully we get some better acts in the next few years.

    Madness the first year was pretty good and the place was hoping

    You'd be doing well to get a masons/foundry crowd as both places are closed!

    I know what you mean.

    Don't know I'm not cool enough to go to banger dj's!

    Awful to see two prominent buildings closed. Anyhow hoping daytripper get a good crowd, the more events on in waterford the better.

    Anyone else think that the Foundry venue would make a good live music venue if it was rejigged? Its in the centre of town close to the pubs etc.

    Be a great place for it. Something like Vicar St and the Tivoli in Dublin

    Its a pity the forum venue closed, was a great place for gigs
