Daytripper returns to Waterford City centre at The Gasworks for it’s sixth edition on the last weekend of August, with 3 days of music from Friday 24 th to Sunday 26th. There’s something for everyone over the weekend with Basement Jaxx + King Kong Company + Jenny Green providing the retro rave vibe on the Saturday, and Rudimental + Very Special Guest + Smash Hits appealing to a younger audience on the Sunday. On Friday night though, the Gasworks will host the biggest singalong 80s/90s Pop Party ever seen in these parts. The headliners are one of the most iconic female groups of all time, Sister Sledge, who dominated the singles chart in the 80s with hit after hit like "He’s The Greatest Dancer", "Lost in music", "Thinking of You", "We Are Family", "All American Girls" and "Frankie". To make the party even better, they are joined by Heather Small (M People) who had a similar level of success a decade later in the 90s with Top 10 hits like Moving On Up , One Night In Heaven , Search For The Hero and her Number 1 solo hit ‘Proud’. Completing the Friday night bill are Europe’s top Fleetwood Mac Tribute, Mack Fleetwood, and Waterford’s own funk-soul-brothers, Thank Funk, playing the greatest hits of Chic, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Jamiroquai and more. Tickets for this ‘One Night In Heaven’ are available now at http://www.daytripper.ie and at No 21 Off Licence, The Glen.
