Something for all at the Picnic



After months of fans’ speculation, and a few fake line up posters, Electric Picnic organisers have finally released the line up for this year’s festival.

Top of the list are Beck, Chic festuring Nile Rodgers, Portishead, Outkast, Paulo Nutini, Lily Allen, St Vincent, the Pet Shop Boys, Foals, and Simple Minds to name but a few. Chic were one of the highlights a few years ago, and St Vincent brought the house down last September when she performed alongside David Byrne in what was a magical show.

Other delights will include Irish DJ Annie Mac, The Stranglers, and the Wailers.

But music is not the only delight, as Body and Soul once again descends upon the Picnic, transforming a pocket of the Stradbally landscape in to its own colourful cocoon, with a yearly promise of something completely different. This years offering celebrates the art of chilling out. Visit for more and read Stage Left.
