Helium has launched an updated version of the festival’s phone app ahead of this year’s event, which takes place on Saturday, June 8. Developed by Limerick-based company Mobanode, the app will be available from the Apple iStore in the coming days and will include all you need to know about Helium 2013, from the line-up and stage times to the campsite and information on the good cause which will benefit from the festival, Ataxia Ireland.
In addition to the headline acts, such as The Stunning, Fight Like Apes, Kila and David Kitt, the festival also provides an opportunity for local acts to perform. This year sees Appian Way, Downward Spiral, Midnight Roots and a number of other groups from the region appearing on the line-up.
Helium 2013 will take place at Skelly’s in Ballymahon on Saturday, June 8. After last year’s sell-out event, the organisers are advising people to book tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Tickets can be purchased from Entertainment.ie, Skelly’s Bar and The Country Shop in Ballymahon, The Sound Factory in Athlone, Denniston’s in Longford Rochfort’s Music in Mullingar and Charlie Byrne’s Bookshop in Galway.
