We are really looking forward to the festival which has managed to attract such a brillant line up, it takes place at the same time as Scotlands top festival T in the Park, and they both can lay claim to being their versions of Glastonbury festival.

Festival goers will be arriving at the event from Thursday next week armed with tents, wellies and sunscreen.

Some 70,000 will be camping, while security is being looked after by 2,000 stewards, with over 200 gardai also on duty for the event.

Hundreds of buses will be on hand to transport music fans to the destination, while park-and-ride facilities will also be available at Goffs off the N7, and another one at junction 10 off the M7.

Organisers say the campsite opens at 12 noon on July 10 and will close at the same time the following Monday.

The indecision starts here, with Amy Winehouse going head to head with Vampire Weekend early on Saturday evening, and the Verve competing with The Prodigy, the Manic Street Preachers and The National for the crowd end of the night.

Meanwhile, MGMT clashes with Kate Nash and the Kooks on Sunday and music fans will have to choose whether to finish the night off with Rage Against The Machine, The Chemical Brothers or Oxegen favourite Ian Brown.
