  14. Where else can I go

    I'd definitely give Electric Picnic in Ireland a look, loads of different areas and it has a 'festival within a festival' (Body and Soul). The atmosphere is really laid back and friendly and the lineups are consistently good too.
  15. Electric Picnic 2016

    Had a great Picnic as usual, it felt less crowded than last year but maybe I just got lucky. Noticed a fair few more younger kids this year but fair play, they're the future of the festival! A brief summary of what I saw Fri : These Charming Men at the Salty Dog - Smiths covers band and a good fun way to kick off proceedings Broken Social Scene- really enjoyed these Ryan Sheridan - meh Nas - not a massive fan of rap but thought it was a good show Chemical Brothers - got off to a good start but I was a bit bored by the end Sat : Trinity Orchestra David Bowie Tribute - Felt a bit flat in parts but overall it was excellent Lightning Seeds - seemed very out of place on the main stage, their music has dated quite badly Bananarama - top fun, the tent was bouncing! Bell X1 - caught the second half and thought it was great, will definitely check them out Noel Gallagher - Loved it, plenty of singalongs in the rain! I also spent a lot of time at the comedy tent Sun: Dublin Gospel Choir- As usual started my Sunday off with these, always a great way to start the day! Toots & The Maytals - lovely reggae vibes Then spent most of the afternoon at My Lovely Ranch which was a great laugh with the Rubbish Song For Europe James Bay - good grief! What a pile of sh*te! Nathaniel Rateliffe - one of the gigs of the weekend, shame he had quite a small crowd New Order - probably the best I have ever seen them, felt they could have been given a longer set time though Lana Del Rey - only watched the first half but it wasn't too bad
