Change of venue for next Saturday’s Kraftwerk show – the Day In The Life festival will now take place in the grounds of the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, Dublin 8 (where Lenny, Moz and Iggy played back in June).

Per promoters POD Concerts, the change of venue is due to “extreme weather conditions causing the river at Lough Dan to burst its banks on the Luggala Estate”. As a result, production on the site this week was deemed to be “impossible”.

As the ticket price included a bus transfer to and from the venue, concert holders will now be refunded the bus fare of €20 on presentation of their ticket on the day of the show.

Capacity for the show remains at 4,999, doors open at 3pm and the bash finishes at 11.30pm.

Poor old Luggala – this is the second time this year a show which was scheduled for the venue has been yanked (the other, of course, being Moz who was originally slated to play there in June).
