Sligo kicks it off in styleMay 2, 2010
Well. Fresh Air is back, and boy did we kick it off in style in Sligo last night. Fresh Air was part of a mammoth opening night for The Model, an arts centre in Sligo which was re-opening after a 2 year closure for a rebuild project.
Fresh Air used the brand new performance space at The Model which is a great grey box. We pushed all the seats back and set up a separate station/stage for each of the acts around the room so that there wasn’t one main stage. It meant that CatScars, Children Under Hoof, School Tour, Hunter Gatherer and Patrick Kelleher all played from different parts of the room and the audience had to move around to get the best view. It led to a great festival atmosphere with people plonked all over the place, some sitting, some standing, some dancing. We can’t wait to see the footage Myles and Steve got on film.
