Oxegen and the Electric Picnic may command all the music news headlines, but there’s a ton of other festivals which deserve your time and recession euros (™ Thrill Pier).

Like Cork X Southwest, a one-day bash at The Showgrounds, Skibereen, Co Cork on July 26.

Cathy Davey, Afel Bocoum, Jape, The Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir and The Walls are amongst the main stage attractions, while other stages will feature Andrew Weatherall, Fish Go Deep, DJ Kormac, John Spillane, Roesy, Preston Reed and Juno Falls.

There will be a bunch of quirky sideshows (including a lecture on how to grow a garden in your flat and Sensible Soccer), art exhibits, slow food producers and a mobile cinema screening music documentaries
