Entitled The Winter Party 2000, the event takes place at the Mosney Fun Park in County Meath on November 11. Taking place in a custom designed, heated circus tent, the event, along with the Bugged Out! extravaganza taking place in Prestatyn, Wales, the following weekend, sees the extension of the festival season further into the winter months than ever before.
The event is a joint collaboration between Vince Power‘s Mean Fiddler organisation, and local promoters Pod & Influx. “For years now we have tried to put all these acts on the one bill,” enthused Johnny Moy from Influx. “Every time you to a festival in Ireland or wherever, you might see them all in a different arena or on different days, but its been five years since they all played together in Ireland.”
The Winter Party 2000 runs from 6pm till late on November 11. Tickets cost #28.50 plus booking fee, and special trains from Dublin are available. Call 01-8366222 for details.
