I previously mentioned I was heading to Castlepalooza in Charleville Castle in Co. Offaly over the weekend charged with reviewing it for Goldenplec.com. The festival had a real relaxing and intimate vibe due in no small way to the picturesque surroundings of the castle, friendly staff and the rest of the 2000+ punters. All festivals have their faults/problems but I don’t want to dwell on them, I saw great sets from The Cast of Cheers, Adebisi Shank, Fionn Regan, Band on an Island, The Lowly Knights & Wave Machines.
Small festivals certainly have their place on the Irish circuit now and I’d highly recommend it for next year.
You can read my review over on Goldenplec.com (not sure how good/bad or indifferent it is) & there are some clips from the weekend below.
