Homelands Ireland 2000 was 18 years ago today. Check out this amazing video of Mr Spring’s set… [April 2000]

While the first Homelands Ireland (click here for more) was a landmark moment for the Irish dance movement, Homelands Ireland 2000, which took place on this day 18 years ago (29 April) was no less groundbreaking.

The lineup was insanely good for one thing: Paul Oakenfold, Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Slam, DJ Hype, Mr C, Boo Williams, Craig Richards, Lee Burridge, Nick Warren, Primal Scream, as well as the cream of the Irish scene (also notable were the number of Irish tricolours with Mitsubishi signs painted on them, ah the memories… 🙂).

The standout was undoubtedly the Lush arena, which went off as soon as the doors opened at 1pm and maintained that energy right until close.

This set, by Mr Spring, aka Timmy Hannigan, sums up the exuberance of that glorious day out at Mosney Holiday Centre, County Meath.
