The music festival season officially kicks off today with Life opening its, eh, gates shall we say?
The big R has severely decreased the number of Irish festivals surviving into 2010 (which I personally see as a very good thing with the dilution of line-ups becoming a serious problem) but Belvedere House (Mullingar, Co WestMeath) will welcome a few thousand dance/electronica fans for the June bank holiday weekend.
Acts such as LTJ Bukem, The Japanese Popstars & Ricardo Vilalobos will entertain the crowd over what will hopefully be three sunshiney days kicking Summer 2010 off with a bang.
