Digital media is a part of everyday life and festivals are no exception. There are plenty of
that are very useful to help plan and enjoy your festival.

Our Top 5 Festival Apps


Instagram is essential for showing all your friends who couldn’t make the festival exactly how much a great time you are having! Also you can use the filters to hide how tired you look 🙂 It’s easy to link your Facebook and Twitter accounts to Instagram and show everyone your photos of food, new random friends, the back of someone’s head etc!

Booze Doc

Once the tickets and tent are sorted, the next thing to sort is your booze for the weekend. Look no further than the Booze Doc app for all the latest deals on alcohol from the main stores including Tesco, O’Briens, Dunnes etc

Festival Ready

This app does everything you could need for a festival weekend. It will help you find your tent, turn your phone into a torch, give you updates on the weather and a checklist of what to bring. What more could you want?

Online Banking Apps

All the Irish banks have apps now allowing you to check you balance to make sure that round you bought the night before hasn’t emptied your bank balance. Ulster Bank allows you to set up text alerts so that you are informed when your balance goes below a certain amount so you will know if you can afford that round of drinks for your friends.


Essential for researching some bands before your festival as Spotify contains millions of tracks. You can create your own festival playlist of the bands you want to see to get in the mood for your big weekend. You can also save tracks and playlists to play offline. This will allow you to play tunes in the campsite with your mobile data switched off (saving your battery)
