Slane On For 2013, But Who Will Play?

The annual Slane Castle concert will return in 2013 after it's break in 2012. Following an announcement on Friday, the event organisers have stated that the concert will take place on two dates in Summer, with one in June and one in August.

It will be only the second time the gig has taken place twice in one year following U2's performances in 2001. Other memorable appearances at Slane include R.E.M (1995), Red Hot Chili Peppers (2003) and Oasis (2009).

The headliners will be announced at a press conference tommorrow morning so stay tuned to hear who we'll be seeing this year. Speculation is suggesting The Rolling Stones, Coldplay and Green Day, although we'll be hoping for something more like Radiohead or Blur, another two names being mentioned.

UPDATE: It's Bon Jovi. And ticket's are 79.50. Oh dear.


  1. Bon Jovi.

    Oh no.

    Although, there wasn't exactly a great selection out there. The Stones, who were rumored to be doing it, would have been pretty crap too.

  2. It's disappointing but to be expected, I think nowadays Slane is built for these type of washed out acts to play their greatest hits.
