Irish music festival, second biggest irish festival behind Oxegen. Or as wikipedia puts it ''Has received international acclaim as Irelands Glastonbury''
Unlike Oxegen it focuses on more than just music & drinking, often considered better by those who have gone to both as the crowd that attend it are big music lovers due to the nature of bands that get called to it. Whilst the bands that attend aren't nearly as big internationally as those that play at Oxegen, EP has carved a niche in showcasing diverse artists whilst still getting big band names.
Is seen by some as a ''rite of initiation'' into 3rd level education in Ireland whilst Oxegen holds the title for being the festival to attend after national exams ie Leaving Certificate.
