The sound of music (festival) July 2, 2022

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Well, the Fairview Park music festival of sorts – Glastonbury in miniature redux on the river Tolka – ended on Friday night with Stereophonics. Wild horses would not drag me to see that band.

The night before was a cheerier outing so it would appear with Olivia Rodrigo whose Glastonbury set was enlivened by her and Lily Allen making their opinions on the US Supreme Court known. Other bands passed by. I’m trying to recall who was on earlier in the week.

The most intrusive section of it was when there were gigs Saturday, Sunday and Monday (and Croke Park hosting GAA simultaneously, which put some pressure on parking and traffic and foot traffic). But overall, bar there being talk of covid rife, it broadly has passed without any hitch, ending on time, much fewer crowds than expected the noise Again, as noted last week, for those with double glazing, about bearable. I’ll be interested to hear the community response but so far my sense it is broadly positive. That may change.

They’re disassembling the site at the moment. Probably take three or four days to do so completely. Four more years to go. If it keeps to the level of the last fortnight it might be a positive enough addition.
