If you’ve ever dreamed about a place where you can listen to Hozier, Florence and the Machine, The Strokes and The 1975 at the same time – Electric Picnic is what you’re looking for. This highly-anticipated festival just unveiled its epic lineup, with these four acts serving as headliners.
Festival director Melvin Benn said they tried to press a real big refresh button with the festival this year. He’s very proud of the lineup they managed to essemble and believes it doesn’t have a single weak link.
“It’s the most extraordinary lineup, way beyond anything we’ve ever done, absolutely amazing. There will always be people who are disappointed. How they’d be disappointed with this one is beyond me!” said Benn.
Ireland’s biggest festival of the year will take place at Stradbally Hall, located in Stradbally, County Laois, between August 30 and September 1. The list of performers also features Billie Eilish, James Blake, Jarvis Cocker, and Jess Glynne.
