    So here’s my take on Big Top (Happy Mondays night):

    Positives:
    Great space to sit at tables
    Toilets good, not as many as for Madness but okay
    Tent was a great gig space
    Overall vibe was very relaxed and enjoyable

    Negatives:
    The bar - Heineken seriously? Terrible choice of beer
    Food - Flash selling 3 different varieties of chips or a very excellent burger from Bodega. Overall poor food choices.

    That’s it really, very unhappy with the bar setup but overall a great venture and hopefully bigger and better next year.

    3 different varieties of chips?

    Yep, cheesy something, chorizo something and some other covering. I’m sure they were lovely but I thought perhaps something a little more from Revolution.

    By the way, the Mondays would be lost without Rowetta. Just saying.

    One of the best music nights out last nIght, Happy Mondays and kingkong company were brilliant. Great set up with tent, very little queuing at bar, some nice food to be had too.

    Yeah you'd wonder what possessed them to choose the most popular lager in the country.

    Funny one, thought the same, its not my first choice but its fine isnt it. They had local gin crowd selling cocktails too, Blackwater gin I think.

    The tent rental company left down the promoters a day before

    So the orginal plan was a tent double the size that housed all the bars and there was to be more food options outside.


    Was great to get it done year one and hopefully move on with it.

    Better dan naw-thin!;)

    What with The Big Top, Daytripper & All Together Now - local music fans have plenty of options going forward. Yes they all cater for different types, ages & music but it's far better than a big fat "zero"!

    On top of this throw in Spraoi, Waterford Walls, Harvest Festival, Summer in the City, Imagine Arts, Dunmore Bluegrass, Winterval but to name a few.

    Loads of Beaches, Mountains and the Greenway.

    And Waterford was recently named Ireland Foodie Destination of the year!

    Saying that you still won't be able to please everyone....:D
