Music festival season is just around the corner with the June bank holiday weekend kicking things off. From June bank holiday weekend until Electric Picnic which is usually the first weekend of September there is pretty much non stop festivals all summer. Some weekends even have reasonably popular music festivals clashing and that is not including other festivals like Rory Gallagher festival and local regattas that most Irish towns have each summer.
The thoughts of all this makes me appreciate how much I love the summer in Ireland. When the weather here is great it really is one of the best places to be in the world. One thing I do dread about the festivals is of course the week after where you are usually on a downer after the highs of having such a great weekend with friends camping out in a field. Another pain can be getting around the festival, especially before you have set up your tent as you are stuck carrying as much drink as possible to your campsite which as always is the other side of the campsite. This could all change however.
It looks like electric scooters may be available to rent at some festivals this year which would be great as you can use them to transport your tent and drink to the campsite. It is still just an idea at the moment that we have heard about but anything that helps you transport your drink is always a good thing and electric scooters look pretty fun. Apparently www.escooterstore.ie are the ones leading the way with this idea of renting out the electric scooters.
This could be great if they don’t get damaged as you never know what could happen with people at festivals! Comment below to let us know what you think of the idea as we think it is pretty cool but not sure how practical an electric scooter could be at a festival!
