Big thanks to OTR reader Brian Daly for uncovering this info-dump from MCD’s licence application for a series of Phoenix Park shows next summer.

We can expect a minimum of three and a maximum of seven shows at the Ashtown site in the Park between July 5 and 26.

Capacity for each event is 45,500 plus 2,500 stewards and guests.

The site will feature only one stage and the age demographic is described as “16 to 65″. One act is named in the document and that’s The Stone Roses.

There will be two bars in operation and 28 concession stands. Licence indicates that there are plans to run shuttle buses from Custom House Quay to the site. Other useful info: 228 female WCs, 47 male WCs, 182 urinals and 3 disabled access loos. Per Brian, “no mention if these are Olympic standard loos”.
