Lark In The Park 2010

Moira's outdoor music festival announces lineup

Lark In The Park, Northern Ireland's fastest growing outdoor music festival, has announced details of its return this year to Moria's Demesne Park over the weekend of April 30 - May 1, with two spectacular days of live music, entertainment and a fun day out for all the family.

The Saw Doctors play the opening night and the following evening will be headlined by unstoppable Northern Ireland supremos General Fiasco.

In October 2008, after a gap of 17 years, west of Ireland rockers The Saw Doctors topped the Irish Music Singles Chart with their punked up version of the Sugababes song 'About You Now', beating off international artists such as Pink and Kings of Leon.

Back in the early 1990s, The Saw Doctors were Number One in Ireland with 'Hay Wrap', 'N17' and 'I Useta Lover' which still holds the record for the biggest selling Irish single. The band's first album, If This Is Rock & Roll, I Want My Old Job Back was Number One in Ireland for most of 1991.

Derry trio General Fiasco have spent the last year on the road playing headline shows and support tours with the likes of The Enemy and The Answer, performing at the CMJ in New York, and festivals such as Download and Glastonbury. They also signed to the Infectious Music record label and released their first single ‘We Are The Foolish’ which was played on Radio 1, XFM, MTV 2 and NME TV.

They played their biggest show at home in Ireland on Halloween when they headlined the 1300 capacity Ulster Hall in Belfast. With the bands debut album Buildings released March 22 and the band's latest Single 'Ever So Shy' on the Radio One playlist, this year promises to be something special for the three piece.
