He's wiped the floor with Derek Quinlan, Sean Dunne and Liam Carroll -- and now John Gallagher has strutted his stuff alongside former Sex Pistols rocker John Lydon, Roxy Music's Bryan Ferry and LCD Soundsystem at the Electric Picnic music festival.

Gallagher, "the smartest man in the room" who cleared profits of more than €1bn when selling off his family's Jurys Doyle hotel property and Inns businesses at the top of the boom, wowed the crowds at John Reynolds' boutique music fest.

Outside of the pinstripe suit, Gallagher is also the lead singer of five-piece indie rock band Dakota 66, which played the massive music festival at Stradbally over the weekend.
