The last of the sum­mer bliss...

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

It’s the last bank hol­i­day week­end of the sum­mer, and al­though there’s still one big fes­ti­val yet to hap­pen, the sum­mer fes­ti­val sea­son will wind down over the next few days. In Cork, the Indiepen­dence fes­ti­val kicks off to­day in Mitchel­stown, with Ed­i­tors, Ash, Ther­apy? and more.

Tul­lam­ore’s Castlepalooza fes­ti­val also be­gins to­day. Rap group Naughty by Na­ture will head­line, along with Jape, whose new al­bum is re­leased in Septem­ber. Doves and Mer­cury Rev will also per­form DJ sets over the week­end. There’s a mini-fes­ti­val tak­ing place in Meath this week­end, too, when the Le Chéile band­wagon rolls into town, bring­ing Sharon Shan­non, Ryan Sheri­dan and As­lan into venues in Old­cas­tle, while rap su­per­star 50 Cent will head­line a bill that in­cludes Flo Rida, Shayne Ward and Won­der­land, at Wa­ter­ford Mu­sic Fest to­mor­row.

There are also some high pro­file gigs in the cap­i­tal this week­end. The leg­endary Mor­ris­sey plays two sold-out shows at Vicar Street tonight and to­mor­row, while tick­ets re­main on sale for Prince’s Malahide Cas­tle gig to­mor­row.

Jape: new al­bum to be re­leased in Septem­ber
