Astral Plains festival, 26th June 2010

The Astral Plains festival took place in the grounds of Birr Castle, Co. Offaly on 26th June. The festival is one of a number of Boutique Festivals popping up all over the country. The festival had a really laid back family atmosphere that I enjoyed and it had a lot to offer other than music. Set up around the grounds of the castle were several shop tents set up selling fair trade clothing, jewellery and bags, a smoothie bar and a tent selling freshly made pizzas cooked on a portable fireplace. I can’t wait to go back next year and I’ll hopefully be camping.

Here’s some of the highlights of the music line up:

About Jane Ward

I’m finally getting around to updating this section. I’m a recent Journalism graduate, and love flexing my writing muscles by updating this blog. I’ve had a fair bit of work published in a number of publications including student magazines and also in the national press. This blog isn’t the most serious one in the world as you may have noticed, it’s mostly for fun but I do try and post as much serious work as I can. More recently I’ve been involved in music journalism as it’s always been a passion of mine. I’m always open to submissions so if you have a demo or anything you’d like reviewed or previewed I’ll gladly post something. Hope you enjoy the blog
