What a great weekend for Irish music fans.
From the Spice Girls on Friday night in Croke Park, now to Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody singing a duet with U2 frontman Bono, we've had a cracking weekend. And if you managed to head to both events - fair play.
The Belfast Telegraph reports that yesterday's event, the third such Ward Park festival, was organised by Lightbody to showcase the huge musical talent currently coming out of Northern Ireland. Approximately 35,000 people descended upon Bangor, Co. Down to hear from artists such as Two Door Cinema Club, Foy Vance, Ash, SOAK, Jealous of the Birds, and Brand New Friend. There were also a number of up-and-coming artists like JC Stewart, The Wood Burning Savages, Kitt Philippa, and ROE.
Closing out the day-long festival was Snow Patrol, who sent the crowd into a frenzy by bringing out one of Ireland's most famous exports - Bono. The pair joined forces for a special rendition of the 1992 U2 classic, 'One', in order to show everyone the strong relationship between Northern Ireland and the Republic.
Hoping to distill joy and hope into the audience, Bono sang "No them, there is only us." Here's the full performance for you below.
Snow Patrol are set to play Dublin's Malahide Castle in a couple of week's time, on Friday June 7th.
