Body&Soul ends partnership with Electric Picnic

A partnership ends the decade draws to a close.

Founder of Body & Soul Festival Avril Stanley has announced that after ten years as an independent festival they have decided to step back from their 16 year partnership with Electric Picnic.

This is in order to refocus their attention “to what the central idea behind Boyd&Soul is all about: creating an intimate and collaborative festival of the future”; one that can embrace social change in a hugely positive way while celebrating an important and ancient Irish feast in our own unique, stand-alone style.”

In a final note they said, “We are adding a new sense of purpose to our festival pillars of sustainability, wellbeing, creativity, culture and family and we hope to focus all of our efforts in bringing something different to the landscape of Irish festivals into the next ten years.”

We want to work towards bringing back a fresh energy and perspective to Body&Soul at the Summer Solstice Festival in Ballinlough and for our new winter festival ÉRIU (December 2020).

Looking ahead to Body&Soul at the Summer Solstice festival in Ballinlough and their new winter festival ÉRIU in December 2020.
