Punchestown Racecourse, Ireland; July 9-11

An Irish conflagration of Reading/Leeds and T, and with Muse, Arcade Fire, Jay-Z, The Prodigy and Kasabian present and correct, it’s fair to say the organisers are happy to aim big. Granted, there’s no excuse for Paolo Nutini, Stereophonics and John Mayer, but the sheer volume of bands playing over the weekend means there’s always something good to watch. Keep an eye on the mid-afternoon slots for some indie big-hitters doing smaller-than-normal festival sets.
