Waterford Day-tripper Festival
Daytripper returns to Waterford City centre for Year 5 with a new site at the Gasworks on the Waterside and a new date, the last weekend of August. The first headline act to be announced are UB40 (featuring Ali, Astro & Mickey) for Saturday, 26 August. Daytripper Music Director, Mick O Keeffe, commented ‘when Ali reformed UB40 with Astro & Mickey in 2015, we were the first festival to offer them a headline slot and they really enjoyed the show as did the sell-out crowd who attended at Bolton Street. The band are touring their new Greatest Hits set in 2017 with huge outdoor shows across the USA, Europe, Australia/New Zealand and 12 major UK racecourse, arena and stadium dates. When they expressed an interest in coming back to Daytripper, we were delighted to book them again to help us celebrate getting to Year 5’. Tickets for UB40 at Daytripper 2017 will be on sale from 9am on Friday 3 March from Daytripper.ie and the Theatre Royal Box Office.
