Summer music festival chat. Its the middle of august and the Irish summer music festival circuit is coming to a finish with Electric Picnic on September 2nd. Sebastian Stephenson chats to Zachary Stephenson, a student studying at the British and Irish Modern Music Institute, who has been to this year so far: Body and Soul, Longitude, Knock and Stocken along with co-ordinating volunteers and been part of the production for other concerts this summer. We compare and contract not only the acts on stage in each festival but also the vibes created at these festivals and how they do it. We also check in on the Irish Design Shop and Sebastian talks about trends in Dublin creativity for 2016 so far.
