The good weather (ha!) gets off to a fine start with this week­end fes­ti­val. The or­gan­is­ers have pulled off some­thing of a coup by get­ting in The Streets months be­fore they play any­where else in pro­mo­tion of their forth­com­ing album (it’s also their first Ir­ish per­for­mance since 2004); ex­pect a great­est hits set, then, from Mike Skin­ner (above) and his gang. As well as The Streets (who are per­form­ing on a on a spe­cially cre­ated out­door site and stage at Ge­orge’s Dock on Cus­tom House Quay), the bill boasts an ar­ray of es­tab­lished and hot-to-trot acts (Hadoukin, Maps, Ting Tings, Fu­ture of the Left and The Raveonettes) and upand-com­ing Ir­ish bands (Fight Like Apes, Cap Pas Cap and Boom Jack­son). My good­ness, a very good line-up for mu­sic fans – could this be a fore­taste of things to come?
