Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream

We wanna be free to do what we wanna do.

What does that involve?

Via Belfast Telegraph:

Bobby said that he had earlier been “rolling about” in a forest “all day, naked” before pals dressed him and they headed into East Kilbride, near his native Glasgow.

He stated: “Through the heat haze of the late afternoon and my skewed, goggle-eyed acid vision I saw the sight of an Orange pipe and drum band marching slowly up the road towards where us acid-stragglers were stood on the pavement.

I swear that the pipe band and Lodge members morphed into an enormous creature resembling a huge orange slug, leaving a trail of greasy orange slime behind them.”

What you may need to know.

01. Bundoran’s annual seaside hoedown goes from strength to strength with each passing year, and 2016 is the biggest line-up yet.

02. Crowd-pleasers on the bill this year include Brit icons Primal Scream, crossover hip-hop megastar Tinie Tempah and ska perennials Bad Manners.

03. Those with an eye for Irish bands will no doubt see the presence of August Wells (ex-Rollerskate Skinny) on the bill, Belfast’s Pleasure Beach as well as potential show-stealers in Dublin power-trio Bitch Falcon.

04. The festival’s usual helping of surf, skate and BMX goings-on will also be on hand. ‘Tis renowned for that type of thing.

Verdict: Well worth going off the beaten festival circuit to get to, with a healthy balance of Irish artists and big names.
