    pity but can see why as were all bunch a stinge bags here lol and it takes a lot to gain support here. Ive been to a few tribute nights for rock bands and they be a good crowd at them but prob not justify a big act playing here. The Darkness playing Daytripper in 2015 was class but wasant overally busy if i recall

    Stuff Like UB40/Madness and other mod scene type stuff does well here as does the usual smash hits/throw back stuff

    Ian Brown of Stone Roses fame or Richard Ashcroft would be nice for the tuesday. Could be something aimed towards teenagers/young aldults and be a newish band

    ub40 are free the tuesday ha

    I feel the same way about Nathan Carter but you don't see me calling for him to be banned :rolleyes:

    Chuffed with The Happy Monday's. Going to be great, hopefully the week will be well supported.


  • Registered Users Posts: 33,567 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    The throwback event that was to be on the Sunday has been cancelled for some reason and there is no act for the Tuesday night

    Seen as they were emailing out 15% discount codes to everyone a couple of weeks ago and giving away loads of free tickets my guess is they didn’t get the numbers and had to pull the plug


  • Registered Users Posts: 33,567 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    hoping too get to the Happy mondays night

    the food court at this sounds interesting with some great options from top class places (Loko, La Boheme, Revs)

    Starting next monday 19th with Finbarr Furey


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,358 ✭✭✭ dartboardio


    Selling two tickets to Finbar Furey if anyone wants. Bought 4 by accident.

    50 euros for the two. Bought for 37.50 each.


    Or id happily swap for Keith Barry tickets :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 33,567 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    Decent reviews about the events the past 2 nights

    Bingo loco the next 2 and the big one Saturday with Happy Mondays. Sadly wont make any events this year but hope it goes well and becomes a yearly thing with more big acts headling


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,255 ✭✭✭ Smell the glove


    Anyone know what alcohol they are selling down there and how much they are pricing the drinks?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,011 ✭✭✭ Gardner


    the wife was on faceache last night and showed me live videos from bingo loco. i couldn't think of anything worse! few dancers on a stage, a fella on the decks, everyone playing along to organised fun at their benches and a few poppers of confetti every now and then. Kill disco on prozac

    There's a Heineken tent selling pints of Heineken and Cider. Pints are €5.50. They have bottles of Heineken 00 (€4.50), Coors Light, plus the common shorts like vodka, Jim Beam, etc.. Blackwater gin also.

    Man, you are some whinger. Every thread on this board has you on here whinging. Is there anything you enjoy?


  • Registered Users Posts: 206 ✭✭ DLS_75


    Looks like it's been a great success.


  • Registered Users Posts: 33,567 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    From pics/vids I've seen of Bingo Loco it's very like the darts

    I wonder will we see a darts event at future Big Top events?
