BBC Northern Ireland to broadcast Snow Patrol gig

Yup, you'll be able to see all of the Ward Park action on telly.

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 24 May 2010

BBC Northern Ireland have scored a major coup by securing the broadcast rights to Snow Patrol’s 40,000-capacity Ward Park extravaganza – the biggest gig ever played by a Northern Irish act in their own backyard.

The show will air on both TV and radio during the week following the June 5 shindig.

The Bangor action will unfurl as follows:

4pm – Gates open

4.30pm – General Fiasco

5.45pm – Band Of Horses

7.15pm – Lisa Hannigan

9pm – Snow Patrol

There will also be a second stage featuring such hot to trot local acts as Robyn G Shiels, Cashier No. 9 and Cat Malojian.

Meanwhile, Gary Lightbody’s star-studded Tired Pony side-project make their live bow on July 14 in the London Forum. Their debut album, The Place We Ran From, is out here three days earlier.
