Heading up to EP I'm the morning, managed to snag a couple of free passes. Haven't been since 2011 so looking forward to it. Wasn't expecting to even be in the country so even one day will be nice.

Lineup wise if I see Local Natives, A Skillz, and New Order (never seen 'em properly) I'll be happy out. Plus whatever else. Be interesting to see how mobbed it is given the capacity was still 32,000 when I was there last. At least they have added loads more stuff (30 stages!). They'd been making cutbacks since 08/09 when all the pussy parlour/village green etc to the left of the B&S was just removed one year

Couldn't give a shite if it rains either

Back from EP this evening. Great weekend had although I'm broke up now. Highlights were LCD Soundsystem and Daniel Avery Saturday night and NAS on Friday. There was a couple of brilliant moments during Noel Gallagher too. Saw loads of other bits and pieces that I'll remember better in the next week. Delighted to be home!

Id say its a mess today. So glad i came home. The actual site was grand for the time i was there tho with patches of mud but nothing too bad. Id hiking boots on and they done the job.

That campiste thats on its own in the woods. Wilde i think it is? How the fuck does anyone camp there. Its like a favela!

Going to see Radiohead in Berlin on Sunday. Accuweather is predicting that it'll be 29 degrees. So much better weather wise then the Russian roulette of going to an Irish festival.

I'm fairly shook today

went to the American football Saturday. long time since I drank so much.started with breakfast and went on til 4am. Surprised I lasted so long. Something like 18 pints in that time, with G&Ts on top at the end. I'm far too wee to be drinking that much :/

I live off Baggot St - the amount of yanks staggering around the place by 7/8 on Saturday evening was gas.

They're an obnoxiously loud and poorly dressed people.
