Is This 'Netflix & Chill' Outdoor Festival Really Happening In Dublin?

"I'm pretty sure 'Netflix & chill' in an open air environment wouldn't be legal, not in the Phoenix Park anyway"

Netflix And Chill

We're not sure if this is a piss take or not, but it's inspiring some fantastic comments.

A Facebook event is doing the rounds right now entitled 'Netflix & Chill Open Air Festival Dublin' that's due to take place on June 18, and 18,000 people are interested in attending already.

Numbers

Of course, plenty of Facebook users who've come across the invite have taken issue with the use of 'Netflix and chill' in the title... 

I don't think you know what 'Netflix and chill' means...

Daniel Markovits

Possibly not the best choice of name.

Linda Gorman

I'm pretty sure 'Netflix & chill' in an open air environment wouldn't be legal, not in the Phoenix Park anyway.

Caoimhín Ó Laobhais

Good to know we're having a public orgy festival. I hope there's something good on Netflix for the background noise.

Sarah Mck

As much as I wish it wasn't I think it's still illegal to 'chill' in public.

Ickis Mirolo

This is an orgy right?

Rob Feeney

Did nobody tell you that 'Netflix and chill' is a euphemism for sex? Morto.

Beth Fitzgerald

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this just dogging with a movie playing in the background???

Other events with the same title appear to have been organised in places like San Francisco, Seattle and New York supposedly to mark the launch of the Spotted app

A similar event was planned last year entitled 'Movie On The Beach Dublin' that acquired 30,000 likes in one night, but never actually took place.

So what do you reckon: is this just a poorly titled event, a PR stunt, or just a general piss take? Take a look at the invite for yourself here.
