DayTripper Waterford 2017


Daytripper returns to Waterford City Centre for Year 5 with a great new site at the Gasworks on the Waterside and a new date, the last weekend of August.

We are delighted to announce that global pop phenomenon and current chart-toppers CLEAN BANDIT will be headlining Daytripper on Friday, 25th August, as an Irish exclusive, with support from one of Ireland’s best loved and most successful DJs, 2fms’ JENNY GREENE, a fun filled and high energy set of 90s dance, pop and R’n’B chart classics from SMASH HITs, DJ & dance music producer JOHN GIBBONS, Tullamore group CHASING ABBEY and MARSHAL, a young DJ/Producer from the South East.

In 2015, Ali Campbell, the legendary voice and principal songwriter of UB40 reunited with vocalist/ percussionist/trumpeter Astro and keyboard player Mickey Virtue, all founding members of one of the UK’s biggest bands of the last 30 years UB40 and we are thrilled to have them back at Daytripper on their 2017 tour, which will be a celebration of their recently re-recorded Greatest Hits album.

THE BLADES have been added as Special Guests to UB40 at Daytripper on Saturday, 26 August. After some brilliantly received reunion gigs It’s a move that will delight the substantial ‘mods’ community. Also making a triumphant return to Daytripper, on the back of rave reviews for their second album ‘Old Dog, New Tricks, will be PROPELLER PALMS.

CATCH A FIRE, a 7 piece Bob Marley tribute band, complete the Saturday line-up.
