Southwest for a Corker
Oxegen and the Electric Picnic may command all the music news headlines, but there’s a ton of other festivals which deserve your time and some of your recession euros.
One such is Cork X Southwest, a one-day bash at The Showgrounds, Skibbereen, Co Cork on July 26th.
Cathy Davey, Afel Bocoum, Jape, The Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir and The Walls are among the main-stage attractions.
Meanwhile, other stages will feature Andrew Weatherall, Fish Go Deep, DJ Kormac, John Spillane, Roesy, Preston Reed and Juno Falls.
There will be a bunch of quirky sideshows (including Sensible Soccer and a lecture on how to grow a garden in your flat), art exhibits, slow food producers and a mobile cinema screening music documentaries.
Tickets are ¤50. More info at www.corkxsw.com
