Excellent music festival, even in the rain. Hoping this year though, that they'll get the weather, weekend of July 19th, you'd think so. Four stages, all in Emo village, Co. Laois, great idea, central to ireland. Huge selection of eateries, from hot food of all kinds, to sweets n chocolate. Toilet facilities were also way better than the likes of any other festival.

It was an amazing programe. Got a chance to see many Irish artist. I was able to see many irish instruments. And the people were very kind full. Also I loved the destination. It was at Emo village and the location was superb. But the only problem was rain. Due to rain the road and the Arena was completely filled with mud. But I hope that , the people enjoyed it.
