WATCH: RTÉ's documentary on the history of Irish music festivals is brimming with nostalgic gold

How many of these were you at?

Do you remember your first festival experience? Whether or not it was in the '60s, '70s or noughties, it's very likely that it shared a lot of similarities with every other Irish person that adores live music and the experience of being there.

It doesn't matter if your favourite festival memories are from Lisdoonvarna, the Féile Trip to Tipp  or Electric Picnic. Why? Well, there are some things that never change.

Laughs, drinks, muck, craic and good tunes are a stalwart of every good festival and RTÉ's new documentary, Fleadhed - Mo Bhig Fat Dirty Féile, perfectly captures the evolution of Irish music festivals and our society.

The bilingual documentary features memorable performances and wonderful anecdotes as the history of gigs in counties such as Laois, Sligo, Clare, Tipperary, Wexford, Cork, Kildare and Dublin is told.

You can watch the whole thing online here and it's a great watch for anyone that wants to relive some nostalgic festival memories.
