The festival opens tomorrow night with a long-anticipated return to Dublin for British indie-rock foursome Hard-Fi. The band, supported by Dubliners Channel One, will showcase hits from their number one albums Stars of CCTV and Once Upon a Time in the West at the Olympia Theatre.

Georgeís Dock has been drained and the jetty extended to construct the biggest stage ever to be seen in the Docklands. The Streets will headline on stage, with support provided by Mixmaster Mike, resident DJ for the Beastie Boys, hip-hop DJ Morgan and one or two very special guests! Irish music-lovers have logged on in their thousands to register for the free event, with only 1000 chosen by lottery to attend.
