    Very strong lineup. Fontaines and Murder Capital are everywhere at the moment, deservedly.

    Any ideas of stage times, lads? Can't find them anywhere. They've a lot to get through, don't want to miss anything.

    Thanks, actually says doors 7, show soon after, no running order to be published. Fair enough, in early I guess. Enjoy it, folks.

    Well Jaysus. That was some night. Nearly 4 and a half hours, brilliant stuff altogether. Everyone good but the last 4 acts were electric. Just Mustard sounded incredible. They've really honed that sound, sounded much more together than 12 months ago. Never saw Kneecap before and that's not really my bag but they were brilliant, so confident. Lyrics, songs, really slick. I thought they were a shower of loveable chancers but I was way off. Owned a full Olympia. Murder Capital and Fontaines blew the roof off. Melts have a great sound going on there, will look out for that album. Fantastic night, fantastic cause, well done to all concerned.

    Here here Still - a great night was had. Fontaines left the stage at 11:50. Big shoutouts to Altered Hours and Just Mustard who were sensational. Kneecap are headbangers altogether. Great gig for a great cause. Felt like being at a musical festival you love to see it

    Exactly, that was like a good day at the Picnic. Between the 4 acts at Murder Capital last Thursday and the 8 last night, I've had a right whack of value for money in the last week. Exhausted today.

    Highlight of the night for me was when some lady standing wibbly-ingly beside me asked what i thought of Kneecaps performance.

    I told her that i really enjoyed it - and so did she apparently except she found them to be a bit racist?

    Only having the cupla focal myself I thought that I may have missed something in the lads as gaelige flow so i asked her to elaborate on what part of their performance she found to be racist

    The Brits Out chanting was her reply

    i kindly pointed out to her that it's not racist, xenophobic if anything and if there were any victims of discrimination in the scenario it was more likely to be the poor wee hoods from West Belfast

    A few blank nods later and off she stumbled....
