More acts for Electric Picnic

Temperatures are set to rise even more this summer as Stradbally is set to sizzle next month with the addition of 23 scorching new acts that are set to bake in the Picnic Basket.

Chief amongst the new hotties is James Vincent McMorrow who’s never far away from a sizzling set list. His latest, Post Tropical has reaffirmed his pedigree on the music scene. Bombay Bicycle Club make a triumphant and popular return to the Picnic, having outdone themselves this year with their chart topping album So Long, See You Tomorrow.

Mercury Prize nominees, Wild Beasts, will come armed this August with an array of thumping bass lines and dominating poppy synths in the form of their four astounding albums, including their latest delivery, Present Tense. Having jam packed the Little Big Tent last year, there is no doubt that crowds will be wowed once again by Hozier’s effortlessly sounding vocal executions.

Often compared to Björk, PJ Harvey and Kate Bush, Choice Music prize nominee and Meteor Ireland Award winner, Cathy Davey will play Trailer Park this year alongside her retro blue caravan. See EP for more.
