SEA SES­SIONS Bun­do­ran, Co Done­gal To­day un­til Sun­day, 1pm ¤99/¤89 seases­

Surf! Mu­sic! Beach! Bikes! Skates! Sport! Yes, folks, just when you thought that mu­sic fes­ti­vals were get­ting a wee bit lame and limp, along comes the an­nual Sea Ses­sions bash to re­mind you that there’s more to life than a rake of bands throw­ing shapes this way and that.

With Sea Ses­sions, shapes can be thrown in all man­ner of di­rec­tions: if the mu­sic doesn’t get you all of the time (and, frankly, what mu­sic does?), then the in­te­gral range of ac­tiv­i­ties will. Check them out: beach soc­cer and vol­ley­ball, tag rugby, ac­tion sports and the Ex­pres­sion Ses­sion (which fea­tures the best in per­for­mance surf­ing) are just sev­eral of the non-mu­sic bits and pieces you can par­take in.

And the mu­sic? Well, take your pick from any of the fol­low­ing: Kelis (above), The Strypes, Dandy Warhols, The Raglans, Walk­ing on Cars, Drenge, New Se­cret Weapon, Cor­ner Boy, Lit­tle Mata­dor and Ella Eyre. There’s loads more – we just don’t have the space.

Bun­do­ran, how­ever, might just be the fi­nal fron­tier this weekend, so away you go!
