THE Sun, a longtime holdout at Irish concerts for the past 30 years, has hinted that it may make an appearance at one of this years music festivals taking place across Ireland over the summer.
The news was met with an ecstatic response from thousands of festival-goers, who have campaigned tirelessly to get the glowing ball of burning gasses to show up at one of the 763 weekend-long music events that happen each year in Ireland.
With well-known tracks such as “Christ It’s Warm”, “Lovely Colour” and “The Sweat Is Lashing Off Me”, the Sun is a well-known attendee at music events across Europe and in the USA, although it has steadfastly refused to show up at festivals in Ireland and the UK.
“We saw the Sun at Rock en Seine in 2009 and it was just amazing, ” said one avid music festival fan we spoke to.
“The Sun showed up and played for 14 hours, from morning to night. It was incredible, we’ll never forget it. We had hoped it would show up at Electric Picnic the following year, but instead we just got The Rain again. Sick of those guys at this stage, to be honest. If I hear “Sunk in The Muck” or “Ah Me Fuckin Tent Is Letting In” one more time, I’m going to quit going to festivals altogether”.
The Sun is notorious for having an extensive backstage rider list, including demands for every young man in attendance to walk around with their tops off, and for all the girls to wear the largest sunglasses they can possibly find.
