A selection of young musicians who participate in Music Generation Laois programmes, will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform at this year’s Electric Picnic.
Music Generation Laois, along with Music Generation Limerick City and the national Music Generation office, will host a range of performances and workshops at this year’s picnic.
Music Generation Laois will have an area with a stage, double decker bus (from Music Generation Limerick City) and a promotional stand located next to the comedy tent, and the majority of Music Generation performances and activity at this year’s festival will take place on the Music Generation stage and aboard the Music Generation bus.
Music Generation Laois is a music education service for children and young people in county Laois. It is part of Music Generation – Ireland’s National Music Education Programme, initiated by Music Network, co-funded by U2, The Ireland Funds, the Department of Education and Skills and Local Music Education Partnerships. Locally, Music Generation Laois is managed by Laois Music Education Partnership. See www.laois.ie for more.
