Promoters Warn Fans Against Purchasing Counterfeit Oasis Tickets
Music fans attending this weekend's Oasis concert at Slane Castle have been warned against buying tickets from unofficial sources, with stringent security checks promised to weed out forgeries.
Promoter MCD said every ticket would be checked and those with the counterfeit tickets face being turned away, or even prosecution.
Concertgoers were also issued with a list of dos and don'ts for the sold-out gig in Co Meath, including an impressive catalogue of banned items. Fold-up and blow-up chairs have made the prohibited list, along with garden furniture, fireworks, laser pens or pointers, umbrellas, spikes, studs and other dangerous items, glass, cans and alcohol of any kind.
Crowd-surfing is forbidden, overnight camping has been banned and no queuing is allowed before midday. Gates will open at 2pm on Saturday, with the first act, The Blizzards, taking to the stage at 3pm. Glasvegas are due to go on at 4pm ahead of Kasabian at 5.30pm and The Prodigy at 7pm.
Headline act Oasis, who last played at Slane as a support act for REM in 1995, are due on stage at 8.30pm.
Concertgoers have also been urged to pack their wellingtons, to deal with the unpredictable Irish weather, while warnings have again been issued against swimming in the River Boyne in the vicinity of the castle.
Bathing has been prohibited between Stackallen bridge and one kilometre downstream from Slane bridge, and fans have been reminded that there is no access to the castle from the river.
Security in the area has been tight, particularly since two people drowned at Slane in 1995 during the REM concert.
The usual long delays getting to and from the venue are predicted, with people urged to use public transport or car pool to help cut down on delays.
Dublin Bus will operate a service between noon and 4pm leaving from Parnell Square West in the city centre, departing every 20 minutes. Buses will return from Slane straight after the concert. Tickets are priced at €20 and can be bought online from www.dublinbus.ie and www.ticketmaster.ie.
For those who are driving, a traffic management plan has been put in place by gardaí. Those travelling from Dublin and the south of the country are asked to travel via the M50 and M1, while those coming from Drogheda, Navan and the west should use the N51. Travellers from the north of the country are asked to come via the M1 and take the Dunleer/Collon exit. Car parks will be open from noon, with an expected 20 to 30 minute walk to the venue.
Private coaches are to travel via the N2 rather than the M1, with no parking available for coaches or buses on the N51.
Parking for those with impaired mobility is available beside the concert site. Concertgoers requiring the use of these facilities will need a disabled badge or pass, and should arrive via the N51 from Navan.
