About Fortstock Festival
Boasting a great atmosphere and fantastic location, the home of Dundalk Town F.C., Oriel Live 2013 will be the first major stadium gig that Dundalk town and the stadium have hosted. Saturday 6 July promises to deliver a jam-packed day full of events!
The line-up consists of more than 25 Irish and International acts and DJs spread over three stages throughout Oriel Park; The Main Stage, The Roxy Tent and Funky Funky Place.
Headlining on the Saturday night and fresh from Slane Castle former Blizzards frontman and RTE Voice of Ireland judge, Bressie will bring his raging presence and ripping guitar riffs to Oriel stadium with the recent release of his chart-topping second album ‘Rage and Romance’. Festival revellers will be singing and screaming to the rock-pop heart-throb’s slick and glossy delivery.
Main support will be the Original Rudeboys before they embark on their Australian tour with The Script. They will bring their unique concoction of hip hop and acoustics to Dundalk for the second time this year.
2013 has proven to be the year for dance quartet La Galaxie who caused a storm at Forbidden Fruit over the June Bank Holiday. Oriel Live attendees are advised to bring their best footwear to bust some moves to the synth-pop beats of the Irish dance outfit because they will be the late show on the night.
Parlour Flames is the musical adventure of ex-Oasis member Bonehead and they will bring their Manchester musical vibe to Oriel Park for all you Oasis enthusiasts. Local acts including Dirty Epics, The Enemies and The Flaws will also fuel this fantastic day of festivities.
Other performances on the night will come from Raglans, Shadowplay, 21 Outs, Third Smoke, Tic Till Friday, Ben Reel, Charlie Livingstone, Vann Music, We Town Criers and Cronin to name a few. Also, DJ Spiral will be debuting live his newly released single.
Tickets are very reasonable indeed and if you choose, for a little extra, revellers will have the chance to see their favourite acts from the seating in the stadium.
Pawn Productions are extending the early bird ticket offer until 12pm Friday, 21st June. Early Bird ticket purchasers will be automatically entered into a fantastic draw to win two flights to Ibiza plus accommodation along with passes to see David Guetta closing party at Pacha nightclub.
Fortstock 2013 was due to happen in Clones, Co.Monaghan on the 6th of July this year. Due to a few issues with the fire officer, organisers Pawn Promotions decided to relocate and change name of the event.
In good faith the events company have arranged busses to take current Forstock ticket holders free of charge to Oriel Live and on arrival they will receive a complementary drink.
Any other Monaghan people who wish to travel to Oriel Live on these busses can do so by paying a small fee of 5e to cover costs. Busses will leave from the Diamond, Clones, stopping at Monaghan courthouse, Castleblayney, and Carrickmacross main streets before hitting Dundalk for the showdown.
Bus times will be 1pm, 3pm and 5pm returning after the concert.
