Despite the weather, summer 2007 featured over 70 music festivals and open-air shows in Ireland.

Some promoters are already predicting that next year will be ever busier with a number of new festivals mooted and plans afoot to import UK fests Bestival and Latitude.

But this year’s festival season shows no signs yet of running out of steam. In the next few weeks, Dublin music fans will have the Spiegeltent at the Fringe Festival, Green Synergy and the Most Wanted hip-hop fest.

In late October, it’s the battle of the tents when POD’s Some Days Never End festival at the Irish Museum of Modern Art and MCD’s Big Top in the Phoenix Park open for business.

For those seeking a weekend away, there’s Sligo Live over the October Bank Holiday Weekend with Duke Special, Alabama 3, what currently passes for the Buena Vista Social Club, Dervish and many more.
