There's a very pleading full page ad in the Ticket in the Irish Times today for Lovebox, 24 hours before the festival begins.
"NO RAIN FORECAST" the ad shrills (actually, it is predicted to piss rain from the only weather site I trust, BBC World Weather)
"TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE GATE" so that plane circling the site at Oxegen advertising Lovebox didn't work then.
"GREAT COCKTAILS" actually the cocktails at Garden Party were yumsies.
On the following pages there are THREE full page ads for MCD gigs @ Marlay Park; Kaiser Chiefs w/ The Fratellis, Ash, The Blizzards and Royseven; Damien Rice w/ KT Tunstall, Guillemots, Willy Mason and Fionn Regan; Foo Fighters w/ Nine Inch Nails and Silversun Pickups. The weather and competition is definitely not a music promoter's friend this summer.
