Being Europe's favourite, as voted for at last year's
UK Festival Awards, is obviously not quite enough for the Irish bash which has revealed a few tweaks to it's
site, beginning with a series of luxury camping options added to the green campsite.
These are to be put in place
by deluxe camping kings boutiquecamping.net and will include four to six berth tipis, designer beach huts
and the even wackier boutique ship's cabin and western style bow top wagon.
On the foot front, punters will be able to give their mud-sodden shoes to third world countries in exchange for a brand new pair of wellies whilst a new set of personal lockers will be at hand for all those valuables.
2009 will take place at Punchestown Racecourse, County Kildare from 10-12
Tickets for this year’s event are on sale now priced at €224.50 (including booking fee).
