The gig was good-ish but the sound was terrible. They'd want to fix that before the remainder of the gigs.
The tunes were great. AF belted them out and got the crowd going wild. The intro video stuff is quite surreal and the stage was nearly as full as the floor right in front of it but Arcade Fire put on a decent show.
And the smokers...
There were smoking signs everywhere and we still had to put up with the plumes of throat-bothering reekiness. Did the event staff make any attempt to get people to smoke outside? Not a chance.
Respect to those smokers who did go outside to light up.
Ɔ3.50 for manky chips? Err no thanks.
Many thanks to the promoters for putting up no signs whatsoever at the Ashtown gate to direct pedestrians to the shorter route (go right after the gate and not left).
