Irish clubbers feel the love!

Thousands of dance fans from across Ireland will help make history tomorrow when Planetlove hosts two festivals on the same day, north and south of the border.

The ninth annual Planetlove WKD Festival will take place at Shane's Castle in Co Antrim, while at the same time, clubbers in the Irish Republic will get their first Planetlove experience at the Fairyhouse Racecourse in Co Meath.

The world's top dance music stars will perform over 12 hours as part of a 70-strong line-up at each event - on seven stages at Slane's Castle and on six stages at the Planetlove summer session in Co Meath.

Many of the artists will play both festivals and will be transported between the two sites by a fleet of helicopters.

Among the stars taking part are leading DJs Paul Van Dyk and Armin Van Buuren, chart-topper Fedde Le Grand, Bodyrockers, Judge Jules, Lisa Lashes and old skool heroes N-Joi.

BBC Radio One will be broadcasting live across the UK and world from Planetlove, while 2FM will be broadcasting live across Ireland from Planetlove Summer Session.

Co-promoter Eddie Wray said: "It's a big expansion for Planetlove and a big undertaking for us.

"The line-ups for both events are exceptional as we continue to work with the most popular dance music artists in the world.

"And more than ever before, there will be a big emphasis on the shows themselves, with many very unique visual and special effects. Tomorrow will be a great day for electronic music in Ireland and thanks to the line-up, a dream day out for clubbers across the country."

Judith Farrell-Rowan, who also promotes the event, said: "Our line-ups are awesome. We have our staples in top world DJs Paul Van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren and Ferry Corsten which makes us very proud and it's great to see guys like Adam Ficek from Babyshambles playing a DJ set and Fedde Le Grand who is very much the man of the moment and vocalist Jan Johnston on the line-up."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
