Arcade Fire & The Pixies

Hi all,

As gig day approaches here are some updates

Firstly I lost my phone so please note I’m contactable on a different number: [masked]

Line-Up:

Gates open at 15:00hrs

TVVINS – 15.45hrs

Ham Sandwich – 16.45

Pixies – 18:30hrs

Arcade Fire – 20.30hrs

Getting There:

Get the LUAS to Ballally, walk up Wyckham Way and then down Ballinteer Avenue. Couple of pubs on the way should you get thirsty it’s a 25 minute walk or less

There are diversions on the 14 bus route but I don’t think they kick in until after Rathfarnham

Each of the 14, 14a, and 48a all bring you close to Marlay Park also, dropping you at Broadford Road in Ballinteer, 10 minutes walk from the Park. NOTE that the 16a leaves you 35 minutes away in Rathfarnham.







The 14, 14a, 48a and 16 all serve the same stops in Upper O'Connell Street (outside Burger King) and D'Olier Street. At 3pm they should take about 35/40 minutes to get out to Ballinteer.







The 75 will also bring you to Broadford Road in Ballinteer from either Tallaght or Dun Laoghaire.







Timetables for them all are at:

Meeting Up:

Plan is to meet up in waves early doors at

3pm and later wave after 5pm

First wave is meeting in The Eden House – Grange Rd Rathfarnham from 3pm. The first band is on at 3:45pm and it is around a 20 min walk from the pub to the gig.

Second wave is meeting in The Eden House at 5pm and will head in from there.

If you don’t make it to Eden for either of these times we will meet up inside the venue

There is actually a meeting point at concerts in Marlay Park – I won’t know where it is until I’m actually there. Ask on the way in and I will also try to post it to Meetup.

 I’m only interested in The Pixies and Arcade Fire so if we haven’t already made contact I will be at the meeting point inside Marlay Park from 17:45 – 18:00. Will try and find a good spot in preparation for The Pixies after that time and will post where I am.

Eden House Location:

http://www.edenhouse.ie/location/

Afterwards:

I think it will all be over circa 22:30

There might be special bus services laid on for the return journey into town – I couldn’t find any info on this.

    Hi all, sorry the internet stopped working on my phone so I wasn't able to post where we were. I hope you caught up with a few people anyway and that you enjoyed the gig. It's tricky trying to meet and stay together at the bigger outdoor gigs. At least I know the lie of the land at Marlay Park now for any future gigs.

    • Mary

      Elaine - I thought you did a brilliant job! I tried going back to the last spot I saw you in after the gig but the whole place was emptying out, so I made haste for the loos (those 3 beers finally caught up with me...). But I hope I can catch up with you again soon - definitely owe you a drink! Mxx

      3 · July 1

    • Niamh

      Yes thanks Elaine. Carol and I didn't go to front in the end. Lost the others and went back looking for you but couldn't find you :-( Hope you enjoyed the end of the concert :-)

  • Rob G

    • Rob G

      Hi Tess, sorry you missed us (hope u met the other group) and yep Carol.. really enjoyed it too. We ended up very near the front :) (pics later) so couldn't really go back to the later group :( but sill a great great gig.

      2 · June 30

    • Tess

      Hi Rob, we arrived in when the Pixies were playing so didn't want to bother you guys. Sure next time we will be super organised, enjoyable gig all the same.

      2 · June 30

  • June

    Hi... Just wondering where group is at?

  • Niamh T.

    I'm right of the stage

    June 29

  • Elaine H

    I haven't been to a gig in Marlay Park before but apparently there is a pit area at the front. So if you get there early enough you can get into the pit. I won't get there early but to be honest I'm quite short so the pit wouldn't be the best place for me anyway. I am going to a show at 2.30pm 'cos I thought the gig was on later.. meaning I won't be out in Rathfarnham until around 5:00pm. I suggest those of you who are in a position to go early arrange meeting up on here.

    Watching Glasto footage of Pixies and really considering getting a last minute ticket but none of my friends are going. Whats the deal with this group, is everyone a stranger or will I just be some random weirdo tagging along with a bunch of people who already know each other??

    • Elaine H
