Feel the excitement building? Anyone who was there last year is and with just over two weeks left until launch, Temple House Festival fever has well and truly begun.

Over one hundred incredible bands, 4 stages, countless events and quirks, a medieval village, an arts trail, excellent food and a thousand other attractions, all set over a glorious June bank holiday weekend. Top that with amazing grounds, no major queuing and excellent organization, you’d be mad to miss it. Also it’s set in Co. Sligo so you can’t go too wrong.

Tickets are selling like hot cakes and Tickets There decided it was time to give you a quick preview of just some of the great bands booked for this years event.

Friday: June 10th

ASH (Bavaria Main Stage)

What can anyone say about the incredible Downpatrick pop rock trio that hasn’t already been said a thousand times before? Ash have been one of the highest ranking staples of the Irish and indeed, international music scene for the better part of two decades. From the release of their massively acclaimed album, 1977 in… 1996 to their trail blazing A-Z series, Ash have lead the way for Irish alternative rock and have remained one of the most influential bands ever to emerge out of Northern Ireland.

The Walls (Bavaria Main Stage)

Since the demise of The Stunning in the nineties, Steve and Joe Wall have been using their time very wisely. Under The Walls banner, they’ve released two records, Hi-LO and New Dawn Breaking and for the past two years, the band have been sporadically playing live while recording their third album, Stop The Lights, which is due out later this year. Armed with an adventurous new live show, a set-list packed with enchanting new material and old favourites, The Walls are well and truly on their way to chart storming and a slot in every homes CD rack. Not one you’ll want to miss on Friday.

Fighting With Wire (Bavaria Main Stage)

One of our MySpace finds and an excellent live act. Taking the stage just before the mighty Ash, Fighting With Wire are an exciting new Irish band that are promised to deliver an excellent set. Their style will also fit in nicely with their headliners so Ash fans, don’t miss them.

Ryan Sheridan (Acoustic Stage– Walled Garden ).

One of the best up and coming songwriters in Ireland at the moment. Ryan’s performances have been landing him a lot of attention recently and soon his name will be everywhere. Temple House have Ryan on a lovely, secluded acoustic stage in a lovely garden away from the packed main stage arena so take this opportunity to check him out before he returns as a headliner next year.

ALSO

We’re going easy on ye for now, what with all the camping gear you’ll be lugging, tent pitching and so on that’ll fill up your morning but don’t dare finish up the Friday without checking out The Flaws, Kanyu Tree and Preachers Son (EDIT: Preachers Son have been moved from Friday to Saturday and will now be playing the main stage at 5:00pm)

Saturday: June 11th

Kerbdog (Bavaria Main Stage)

Saturday sees one of the most exciting events of the whole festival, the reunion of the legendary Kerbdog! That’s right, Cormac Battle and the lads will be taking the stage and belting out some of the biggest alt-rock hits any Irish band has ever produced. Sine the bands 1998 split they’ve reformed a few times. Make sure you catch this gig or you may not get another chance. (Also…they’re bloody savage).

The Fallen Drakes (The Music Maker Stage)

One of the biggest success stories from the Irish music scene and one that keeps on going. The Fallen Drakes have only been together for little over a year but already they’ve landed gigs at the O2 Arena and R.D.S. Outdoor Arena (supporting The Commitments and Bon Jovi respectively). When bands like this are on the up and up, you know it’s going to be a show to remember.

Land Lovers (Bavaria Main Stage)

They’ll be on good an early so don’t spend the whole night partying with Ash. The excellent Land Lovers came to our attention many months back and managed to sneak their way into Tickets There’s own personal daily rotation. Wait for the live version of Immovable Feet and you’ll be glad you took the time to see them.

The Danger Is (The Music Maker Stage)

Tickets There were fortunate enough to discover this amazing, talented, all round lovely lady last year and ever since then we’ve have been quite vocal about our love for her music. With a few choices on the market, an EP and a handful of singles, Niamh and her band, The Danger Is will arrive at Temple house and blow you out of the tent. Possibly our strongest recommendation of the weekend.

Mike Joyce (DJ Set) (The Music Maker Stage)

Former Smiths drummer, Mike Joyce is popping into Temple House be this years Peter Hook, He’ll be playing a DJ set at The Music Maker stage on Saturday night so if you’re not a fan of Whipping Boy or the Stero MC’s, you’ll know where to go. Last year Temple House had the legendary Peter Hook doing roughly the same thing and you couldn’t have asked for a better end to the second day. This year Mike will will be ensuring the party doesn’t manage to slip away.

Sunday: June 12th

Aslan (Bavaria Main Stage)

When running the search on Tickets There for ‘Aslan’ results, I was disappointed that this site has never devoted an article to the dublin legends. By far one of the most successful home grown bands we’ve ever produced and standard setters in the live arena. Led by the infamous Christy Dignam, Aslan have been rocking Irish stages since the early eighties and three decades later little has changed. Hits like ‘Lucy Jones Part 2’, ‘Crazy World’, ‘This Is’ and ‘Rainman’ have endeared them to hearts of thousand of Irish people ensuring packed houses where ever they play. Whether you’ve ever been a fan or not, Aslan are more than worth checking in on – no matter what else is on.

Sweet Jane (Bavaria Main Stage)

After releasing one of the most successful independent Irish albums of 2010, Sweet Jane have turned into an unstoppable touring machine. Their songs are fused with energy last seen on the seventies and their appeal is spreading wider. Mainland Europe, the U.K. and America have brought them an impressively large international fan base which continues to grow. They’re taking the main stage on the final night and are sure to deliver one of the festivals best sets.

The Riptide Movement (The Music Maker Stage)

The Riptide Movement have been firm favorites on Tickets There for a long time. Their second album is set to emerge later this year but already they’ve released two crackin’ singles from it and have taken Ireland by storm. Their repeated appearances on Grafton street, not to mention their constant touring has brought them firmly into the public eye and things are only getting better. Last week it was confirmed they would be one of two Irish bands supporting Bon Jovi when they hit the RDS next month. They rocked Temple House last year and you can damn well bet they’ll do it again in two weeks.

Oddsocks Revival (The Music Maker Stage)

One of Sligo’s own bands, Oddsocks Revival have been saved for the last day and judging by the massive crowd they attracted last year, you’ll need to get in early. They’re extremly strong live, have a massive number of killer tracks from their debut album, It’s Time and they’ll rock the place. Prepare for cowboys meets rock ‘n’ roll.
`
So that’s it. Like we said, Tickets are going fast – so Act now. Full detials can be found HERE. Enjoy and make sure you check out as many of the other acts as you can, it’s too good a line-up to miss.

Sligo – Sony Ericsson Temple House Festival: Line up Announced

Posted in Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 20, 2010 by Tickets There

*** – Read our TEMPLE HOUSE FESTIVAL PREVIEW by clicking this sentence – ***

Seems there’s a new festival down ion Tickets There’s neck of the woods. With the Sligo Live festival turning a tad stale, we must look to new blood to liven things up…no pun intended. Temple House seem to be the guys to do it and today’s Line Up Announcement is sure to send a few thrills through the music scene.  

The Undertones, The Stunning & The Walls (Apparently….awesome), Peter Hook, New Young Pony Club,  202s, Exit Calm, Ronan O Snodaigh, Donal Dineen, Davide Swarup and John Conneely, Arveene & Misk (Live), Barry Redsetta, Clampdown DJs, Motion control, The Whiteliars and Maser….whoever most of them are.

Now, many names on the line-up are totally unknown to us and normally a Sligo festival for €59 would be pushing it…but three days, camping included and the incredible Steve Wall performing with both The Stunning and The Walls! Well, that’s hard to refuse. On top of that you get the legendary Undertones and a DJ set from Peter Hook!! Our advice, use this festival to finally visit Sligo, something most people always put off doing.

Tickets are priced €59 for adults and there’s going to be heaps of markets and arts stuff going on so should be great craic and yes, even Tickets There will leave the confines of cozy Laoghaire to visit our homeland….especially if Steve ‘The Legend’ Wall is going.

Visit their Official Website for full detials about the line-up, extra events, tickets, camping..etc, etc.
