Electric Picnic announce The Strokes, Billie Eilish, James Blake, The Streets & lots more

It’s been sold out for months, but here comes EP 2019!

 

Electric Picnic have released a pretty classic line up after a few years flirting with pop music. While there are certainly some big names in the mix, the top tier is rock, indie and folk and there are some curveballs like Serpenwithfeet, Yves Tumour, Billie Eilish, and, very excitingly, The Streets.

They return to Stradbally House, Laois from August 30 to September 1 and they’ve announced a new festival within a festival called Freetown.

“Construction will shortly get underway to create a whole new town within the festival’s mind-blowing creative acreage, located on the pastureland formerly occupied by the Oscar Wilde Campsite. Anchored by Terminus, a brand new 8,000 capacity mega-stage for electronica and dance – presented as an Eastern Bloc architectural colossus – Freetown will rise from the ground for just four days of the year. Also within its walls, the labyrinthine streets of Providencia will unveil catch-it-while-you-can Latino life down every alley-way, around every corner, while on its outskirts, Spike Island – a swamphut jumping with seisiúns of slip-jigs, The Oasis, an improvised home-place for the gaggle of idealists and a brand new Cirque on the edge of town where death defying, jaw-dropping acts of edgy spectacle unfold.”

Tickets are gone, but check out the line up in full below.
