Any rumours who the headliners might be ?

I think the Cure are likely to be one of them!

Yeh the Cure definitely seem to have Stradbally marked in that map of theirs and the Log and Mexicola from the EP forum are giving strong hints of them too. Im really hoping for Aphex Twin, seeing that Forbidden Fruit got him last year and there is no Oxegen this year, he is long overdue a visit to EP as would love to see him at a later time like the early hours of Sunday morning, perhaps a surprse set in the Afterburner armed with all his lazers, that woud be KABOOM!

Please join my facebook campaign to get Aphex Twin for the Electric Picnic, the festival will be on its eighth year, this year, yet he has not played. Plenty of his label mates and associates have though such as Chris Cunningham, Flying Lotus, Autechre etc... Throw in a comment or a like on the page, cheers.

I don't know much about this festival but I'm tempted. What are the chances of another "big" headliner act being added? The Cure/The Killers/Sigur Ros is pretty awesome and I think one more big one would make it worth the money!

Just wondering now when the next announcement will be, I figure that there might be one next Wednesday for April, a splurge of names once a month. Still hoping to generate the interest of Declan Forde (EP booker for POD) to book the mighty Aphex Twin and for all I know they have probably been trying to get him for years. Anyway please visit my page if you want to see Aphex Twin at the Electric Picnic. https://www.facebook.com/groups/306301782765054/325386420856590/?notif_t=group_activity
