Electric Picnic

Just got word that there have been some more acts added this years Electic Picnic Line up, overall it’s shaping up to be a good one!

Check out the list of new acts added below the fold:

  • Brian Wilson (of The Beach Boys)
  • Royskopp
  • Amadou & Mariam
  • The Wailers
  • Fionn Regan
  • Mundy
  • James Murphy & Pat Mahoney (of LCD Soundsystem)
  • A Flock of Seagulls

As usual with Electric Picnic, there’s a few familiar names (Brian Wilson, Royskopp, Mundy), and some unknowns (A Flock of Seagulls, The Field) – which is whats great about it, I love coming across new artists! Tickets for EP are still on sale here.

I’m super excited that Marina and the Diamonds has been added to the line-up, have only got listening to her over the last couple of months – but so far i’m loving her stuff. So far she’s only released an EP, but has but debut in the making. Check ‘Obsessions’ below
