CARBON Festival 2012 Recap: CARBON Launch Party featuring Fool’s Gold & DJ Neil Armstrong presented by Jansport

Party pics from the night which kick-started the weekend

With a stellar line-up on the ones and twos, it was pretty much expected that the CARBON launch would be a banger. Presented by Jansport the event kicked off the weekend of proceedings with local kids, international speakers, sponsors and outta-towners all swigging back drinks in homage to the further good times and good knowledge to come.

Kicking off the proceedings were the ARC (hailing from NZ) and local lads Dublin Aunts… who paved the way with some party starters. And start the party they did, as did DJ Neil Armstrong who played a set that filled the dance floor, particularly during some of his drops of hits from his previous employer Jay-Z.  Some punters clearly got too amped and needed to save themselves early so they could actually make the forums the next day. Despite the pikers (hey we can’t hate, we didn’t want you hung over either) Fool’s Gold alumni Party Supplies played an epic set which included singing and bashing on the MPC which resulted in great aural enjoyment for all. This guys skills are seriously next level. Fool’s Gold patriarch Nick Catchdubs wrapped it up and we all went home to smash waters and hope for the best for the 11am start. Can we get Nurofen as sponsor for CARBON next year please…
