Yesterday I asked you to post your favourite memory of an Irish music festival for our competition to win TWO three-day camping passes to this weekend’s KnockanStockan festival in County Wicklow which kicks off today.
You answered in your tens.
Some of your posts made me laugh out loud. Some left me a little confused!
Some were inspirational. And some were really poignant.
This was a tough one to call. So with sincere apologies to Dillon, Rachel, Electriclady and Millie, the tickets go to the reader called The Wha? who gets to bring an old friend to the festival:

I love music. It was the noughties. It was Oxegen. It was the first time you could buy floral patterned fashionable wellies.
Everyone wanted to go see Richard Ashcroft.
I didn’t. I managed to persuade a bunch of my friends to go see The Who and James Brown on the other stage.James Brown was amazing. It was seeing The Who that made it the best festival experience though.
Nobody knew any of The Who’s songs or why it meant so much for me to see them.
My first love, the guy who brought me to my Debs was mad about The Who. Each song was a memory of the nineties. Remembering the nineties in the noughties through songs of the sixties… magic! I’m back with him now and would love to bring him to KnockanStockan.
Congratulations and thank you all for your great posts.
