    It sounds great in theory.
    Not sure how that'd work in a post covid world, handing over cans etc.
    Might be a goer for smaller festivals, but not so much at EP where Heineken offer this service for free (albeit with Heineken products).

    Question for ye festival goers. Friend of mine is working on a prototype cooler that could bring 6 cans down from 24 degrees to 4 degrees in about 5 mins. Do you think it's the type of service people would be interested in at a festival, and if so what would you be willing to pay for the service? For example, you could hand in 6 warm cans of beer on your way into the jacks and they'd be ice cold by the time your finished!

    Sounds like he's using liquid nitrogen. On a warm Sunday afternoon after two hard days at it, I'd probably pay 5 for it.

    Sounds great. The only issue I forsee is the Q's to drop off or reclaim your beers might be longer than the time required to cool them!

    Q's into heineken cold rooms can take far too long in my experience and they have a few operating it.




  • Walking through drogheda yesterday and there was a distinct smokey smell (i didn't know at the time, it was caused by the smoke from the gorse fires).

    It made me think of the EP. I was trying to figure out why but then i realised it was a smell you would get walking alongside the various eateries :(:(:(

    That was just probably Paddy McCabe you walked past :)

    I had thought liquid nitrogen myself.
    I'm not sure i'd be bothered with it to be honest, but if I was going to treat myself, i'd be happy to pay that too i guess.

    Fair point.
    It'd possibly work better at a free flow, or smaller festival.
    EP has the heineken cold rooms, and increasingly restricted areas you can drink byob.


    Thanks lads

    I would say 5 quid to cool 6 cans would be very pricey. You would better off buying nicer beer that doesnt need cooling. Its only the crappy stuff that needs cooling as it helps mask the sub-standard taste. A nice IPA doesnt need cooling in my (not so humble) opinion.




  • Rolling blackouts coastal fever for Vicar Street in March, I know there are a few fans on here. General sale tomorrow, presale here now:

    Feels good to buy a ticket again.

    Thanks for the heads up man, just got a pair. Unsure whether we're incredibly generous and just gifting a booking fee to TM but it certainly feels good to be hopelessly naive that all will be as normal by then.

    I'm a glass half full kinda guy, Seathrun. We might have a socially distanced pint in March, so. Something to aim for.

    Same here. Should be a pleasant gig then as that's the only type that'll be buying tickets.

  • The way it's going looks like everything will be back up and running by EP time :(:(




  • also got me RBCF tickets, not finding the new album as good as O hoped though

    Yeah, same. Hope Downs was a tough one to live up to.

    Same here, not hearing any tunes coming through. Reviews are very good though (both have 84 on Metacritic) so maybe a grower.

    Are we now needing to wear band t-shirts for this gig?

    Large scale events (excluding protests ;)) will still be the last of the things to go back to normal though.




  • I wonder if things keep declining if they would relax on that one a bit? Like obviously everything is cancelled anyway, but fuinneamh and those type of smaller gatherings would like a bit more clarity I'm sure.

    Probably, especially small outdoor events.

    For concerts / festivals - not sure how you can ensure social distancing at even 1m without drastically changing the experience.

    Yes, it might drastically change the experience, but it would be fun :D:D
    It'd be worth it for the moshpit alone..

    Am hoping so. Might get to Vantastival who pushed back to 18th-20th September. Might be a bit cool, temperature wise, but the caravan heating is good.




  • You may have seen the FB post from ECO camp site, FRs "Full capacity plan"

    https://www.festivalrepublic.com/news/full-capacity-plan

    We're all itching to get back but is this a bit far fetched?

  • Melvin getting involved with health matters? Jaysus.

    He changed his tune in a big way from the interview a few months back! He's encouraging mass testing, which I suppose isnt a bad thing to be fair.




  • He's not wrong (a sentence I have not used in relation to Melvin before). Some of the things we love about our lives are not going to be viable with social distancing in place. So we wait for a vaccine or we try other methods.




  • Wow. Not a massive Lisa Hannigan fan but she's brilliant on Other Voices at the minute. Gorgeous stuff.

    Saw her at All Together Now last year, superb, apart from the FOMO crowd making a racket coming in from the downpour.

  • Tickets got for Joan As Policewoman next May. Is it possible to OD on live music cos 2021 is going to be mild overkill after several months of cold turkey?

    Tbh my plan is to go as many gigs as i can next year to make up for this year:pac:

    I met her in the aisle of plane in Milan a few years ago, did the awkward in the way getting to the overhead locker. I like to think I played it cool, but I actually blushed like a teenage girl :)




  • Tbh my plan is to go as many gigs as i can next year to make up for this year:pac:

    Ditto all of this years rescheduled gigs plus as many more as i can get. Missing out has made me appreciate them even more.
