I did some work a few years ago for a "festival" like this. Instead of taking over a holiday camp the idea was to take over a hotel. It was dance music and was a total disaster but I still think this is the bones of a brilliant idea. Big ballroom in the hotel with the stage set up for the nighttime gigs, plenty of bedrooms. Other function rooms housing all sorts of other shenanigans. Could actually be amazing.

There must be a few NAMA owned hotels and conference centres which this could work in

Being trapped in a hotel with the type of shenanigans that goes on at a festival sounds like my idea of hell.

That sounds like the mansion festival that was held in County Louth.

I asked him how the weekend was going from their point of view and he laughed in a sort of 'easiest money i ever made, these fey indie fans are better behaved than my mothers bridge club, whadda bunch of pussies' kind of way

That's NYC indie. If Cork and Dublin went it'd be like The Sodom and Ghomorrah Inn except with more fire
