Daytripper Waterford June 28th, 29th + 30th


Madness, Imelda May and The Coronas to play Waterford this June.  DAYTRIPPER is a new 3 day music festival for Waterford, taking place at Bolton Street in the historic Viking Triangle from Friday 28th to Sunday 30th June.

DAYTRIPPER (as the name suggests) also hopes to bring music fans from the South East and beyond into Waterford for 3 days of top quality entertainment, with music for all tastes.

DAYTRIPPER is being presented and promoted by Forum Waterford in association with WLR FM. The Forum has over 20 years experience of bringing great live music to the city.

DAYTRIPPER has a capacity of 2,500 per day. A purpose built event site will be created at Bolton Street for the weekend, to provide first class staging and production for our bands and top of the range bar and food facilities for our audience.

DAYTRIPPER aims to be the best value music event in the country this year with tickets costing just €40 per day plus service charge of €2.50. This is below the cost of many single act gigs in the country this summer and well below any comparable festival events.

DAYTRPPER has been put together with the support and encouragement of Waterford City Council and we thank them for that.

Press Release Number 1:                                                                                                                             April 17th 2013

On Sunday June 30th, The Ravens Rock Rally, the 4th round of the Dunlop National Rally Championship will be based along the Quays in Waterford City. The Rally is also a round of the South East Stages and the Southern 4 Rally Championship’s.

For the first time since 2005, the rally will return to Waterford and for the 1st time since the Circuit of Ireland Rally last visited Waterford, a Rally will be based on the South Quays, with Head Quarters located at Dooley’s Hotel.

Bringing the event to Waterford was dream of Carrick on Suir Motor Club member Billy Collins (Clerk of the Course). The Club has received the assistance and support of Waterford City Council, as well as the support of Waterford County Council and the assistance of Waterford Chamber of Commerce.

Along with the Rally, there will be an action packed weekend for the people of Waterford as three exciting events all take place in the city over the weekend; the Day Tripper Music Festival kicks off the weekend on Friday June 28th, and continues over Saturday and Sunday with headline acts Imelda May, The Coronas and Madness. On Saturday morning the Waterford Viking Marathon will see thousands of runners take the start on the Quay, finally on Sunday morning the Rally will see competitors set off on the 1st of three loops of stages in County Waterford located in the Kilmeaden area. After each loop of stages the competitors will return to the Service Park on the South Quays.

The City Centre location for the Service Park has been designed to appeal to Families as an exciting and entertaining day out with an Artisan Food Village, Craft Fair, Children’s Fun Fair Rides and Entertainment, and a Classic Car Show in John Roberts Sq.

What is Rallying? – Rallying is a form of Motorsport where highly tuned cars compete to be the fastest over a group of Closed Road Stages. The Monte Carlo and the Circuit of Ireland are the two oldest Rallies in the world. Rallying is considered the most challenging and exciting form of Motorsport for competitors. To put it into context; Rallying is what Formula 1 drivers do for excitement!

What are Rally Cars? - Rally Cars are based on road cars, but differ in almost every respect. Apart from having high performance engines ,the biggest differences are; the strength of the cars, the enormous brakes and most of all the suspension, which allows rally cars to drive over bumpy roads and jumps at incredible speeds. World Rally Cars are the premier class and they can accelerate as fast as a Formula 1 car and cost up to €500,000.

What is the Service Park? – Before and after the loop of Stages, team mechanics are permitted to work on the cars. In the Service Park, you will see Mechanics work against the clock; changing tyres, refueling cars, adjusting suspension setups and changing Gearboxes, all within 30 minutes.

What does the Rally mean for Waterford? – The Rally brings over €1.5m to the local economy. It brings hundreds of Competitors and team personnel to stay in the City and County for the weekend. It gives residents of the City and County free access to a major sporting event. Is brings extensive Global Television coverage with the rally being shown in over 80 Countries worldwide.

The Rally is fortunate to have to loyal support of several long term sponsors who are supporting the Rallies move to Waterford; Suirway Farm Machinery, Tom Geraghty Tyres, Eddie Power JCB Hire. They have been joined by new sponsors; Dooley’s Hotel, Walsh’s Nissan Car Sales, The House of Waterford Crystal, The Port of Waterford, The Clock Tower Car Park Co. and Lily O’Brien’s Chocolate Café. The Rally has also received the support and assistance of Waterford County Council and Waterford Chamber of Commerce, and media partners Beat FM, as well as many other new sponsors and partners to be announced in the coming weeks.

Clerk of the Course, Billy Collins said; “We are delighted with the welcome the Rally has received and the support that has been given by the local authorities and key stake holders. In particular I have to say, Dooley’s Hotel have made us feel very welcome and the people in Waterford City Council have given great help and advice.”

“We have put a lot of work into making the Service Park an entertaining day out for Families with the Food Village, Fun Fair Rides, Children’s Entertainment, Rally Car Simulator and Classic Car Show, and in particular we hope that Marathon Competitors and their Families and friends, as well as people on their way to the Day Tripper Music Festival, will come and hang out in the Food Village on Sunday afternoon.
