Christmas may be just around the corner but for most of us, we’re eying up tickets to the hottest festivals of 2017 as presents. From Bon Iver at Forbidden Fruit (his first Irish gig in five years) to The Coronas at Sea Sessions and of course the mammoth that is Electric Picnic, 2017 is set to be a whopper year for live shows. And Christ knows we don’t want to miss out on a day of fun with our crew.
Of course, if festivals aren’t your bag, after all not everyone can handle a Portaloo, musical giants like Phil Collins, ZZ Top, Bob Dylan and of course Justin Bieber (you can deny it but we all love the Biebs) will also be gracing our green isle next year. Which means you need to act fast to make sure you don’t end up with a serious case of FOMO come spring time.
We can all remember our first festival, from Slane to Witness and Feile (for some of us!) to Electric Picnic, nothing beats a weekend of good music, good mates and hopefully good food! You don’t want to be the one spending the next few months ignoring the Whatsapp notifications and months afterwards listening to stories finished off with ‘It doesn’t matter, you had to be there.”
