Here's something from last year. The Mansion weekender. This was a festival-in-a-hotel style event, sort of like All Tomorrow's Parties. I'm no expert in dance music but it certainly seemed that they had a killer line-up. Looks like a dream for fans of this type of music. I'd certainly be all over an event like this full of winey complaint rock.
Anyway it's obviously not as simple as putting on a cool event because by all accounts this was a disaster. The lads behind it lost their shirts. I'm going to guess that the main reason for the flop was that this took place in Dundalk and the main audience is Dublin based and truth is that a lot of Dublin residents think the world ends at the county border. Pity. Needless to say I haven't been paid for this. Oh well.
