Former musical jewels in the Picnic’s crown

For the past ten years Electric Picnic has been bringing the cream of musical talent to the green fields of Stradbally as well as providing a huge platform for up and coming talent both Irish and international.

From the first ever Picnic which hosted Groove Armada, the festival has grown and flourished and transforms the Cosby estate into a magical wonderland for young and old one weekend a year. Past highlights include immense performances from Leftfield, Orbital, Iggy Pop, Bjork, Arcade Fire, Hot Chip, Basement Jaxx, Brian Wilson and the Chemical Brothers - far too many to mention. But there is much more to the three day festival with new art, music and installations to stimulate the imagination at every turn. No doubt this year will provide many more festival highlights to add to the memory bank.
