VIDEO: Féile, 23 years ago this weekend, had a hell of a line-up
It's not often you get to write the line, 'from Iggy Pop to Chris de Burgh'.
The Trip to Tipp on the Bank Holiday Weekend in 1993 was a very, very special time judging by this fairly eclectic line-up, posted by former Whipping Boy (who were on the bill on the Friday) member Paul Page on Saturday morning.
Let's just say there was fun for all the family.

This clip pretty much sums up the atmosphere of the weekend, long before artisan food stands and poetry recitals in the woods.
Irish bands like Therapy? and The Cranberries mixed it with massive international acts like INXS and Iggy Pop, all the way through to housewives' favourites like this man...
You can't beat Longitude or Electric Picnic, two of the best festivals in Europe, but something tells us we'll never see the likes of Mary Black mixing it with Spiritualized again.
Which is a shame.
