I may have to do a Mulley and run master-classes in how to write press releases and get info about live music events to people.

While the press release for the Kraftwerk show on September 13 goes on about 6,000 acres of lushness (“a veritable Middle Earth of heather-covered mountains, silvery waterfalls and lakes, emerald forest and meadows”) and The Beatles, it has very little info about the rest of the bill. That’s all contained in an advert in today’s paper. See, there are reasons why you should still buy the paper.

Besides the majestic Kraftwerk, the rest of the bill features Soulwax, Boxcutter, Comtron, Dark Room Notes, The Jimmy Cake (“classical music in leather trousers” to quote On The Record regular Hot Lunch) and D1 DJs. There will also be a Body & Soul area, bar and gourmet grub.

Tickets? They will be €89.50 to include transport by “magic bus” from either Dublin city-centre or a park and ride jobby at Leopardstown Racecourse – no cars or car parks on site. Tickets go on sale on Friday at 9am.

There’s also a website, but this has the wrong date and no other info, making it about as useful as the Limerick hurlers were last Saturday night. (UPDATE Date now amended on website)
