The perfect description of every Irish hipster at a festival, ever

Bands are only cool when nobody knows who they are.

SHOVE YOUR ARCADE Fires, forget your Kanye Wests and your Nationals.

Irish hipsters love nothing more than banging on about going to see bands you (and they) have never heard of.

Chances are if they’re going to a music festival this year they’ll be heading to the small tents to see some Montenegrin post-punk, Argentinian electro-jazz and a pair of 90-year-old folk singing twin sisters from the Appalachians.

Oh, and not forgetting the all-important collection of wristbands.


Irish comedy troupe Foil, Arms and Hog have them down to a tee:
